General information

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 in 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:
  • enable the volunteers to make their own projects when they finish the voluntary service.
  • explain the basis of permaculture.
  • empower the volunteers for them to experiment with personal growth and confidence in their skills
  • promote conscience by letting them experiment a different way of life and a different way of managing afar
  • assess the individual skills for teamwork
  • create synergies between other projects and volunteers for them to have a contact agenda if they want to start their own projects
  • obtain new tools to change the view over the alimentary production and the relationship with nature.
  • understand another culture. The volunteers will participate in community life and in the village’s social life
