Mas les Vinyes (Catalunya) is searching two NATIONAL volunteers interested in permaculture inside the ESC programme from May to November 2023. Sign up before the 28th of february!
Les Vinyes is a communitary life project in a 25 hectares farm which follows the permaculture and biodynamic agriculture guidelines. The main building is from the XIV century and it’s located in Sant Martí d’Albars, in Lluçanès (between Vic and Berga). The project emerges i 2013 following the willingness of a group of people to foment health by taking care of people, land and living creatures. Nowadays, 4 families and voluntary people temporarily live in the house.
The main objective of the project is to collaborate with the cooperative members in the realisation of a study of a forest garden. It’s an opportunity to participate in the realisation of a project from it’s beginning to the end. Thus, the system will be easily moved somewhere else with different characteristics. Moreover, the volunteers will be able to learn the permaculture basis in a place where alimentary production and community life coexist.
Specific goals of the project:
To enable the volunteers to make their own projects when they finish the voluntary service.
To explain the baisis of permaculture.
To empower the volunteers for them to experiment personal growth and confidence in their skills
To promote conscience by letting them axperiment a different way of life and a different way of managing a far
To assess the individual skills for team work
To create synergies between other projects and volunteers for them to have a contact agenda if they want to start their own projects
To obtain new tools to change the view over the alimentary production and the relationship with the nature.
To understand another culture. The volunteers will participate in the community life and in the village’s social life
