This project mainly offers a DETOX experience for volunteers minimum 25 y/o rather than an ordinary workcamp. Therefore, we are proposing to volunteers to spend one week of vegan (preferably non cooked) food having the chance of doing a one week fastening (totally or partially) that serves as a healthy way of detoxing especially when your fasting ritual allows you to consume fruits and light vegetables. While this may vary depending on people’s beliefs and practices – the essence is to eat light, fresh and unadulterated food. We are looking for volunteers with such wishes and determination. No meat or fish at all will be eaten and we’ll focus on consuming local food. The work of volunteers will be light and diverse, approximately 2 hours per day. The type of tasks may be: to clean and maintain ecologic garden, reparation of hives while a lot of excursions and leisure activities such as discovering of natural springs, taking daily sauna, clay baths, walking and climbing hills while maintaining touristic paths and making marks for these.
The accommodation will be at our Wub Wub house which is a small summer house with solar and wind energy. The accommodation will be basic. The tents will be provided for the volunteers even though the aim is to sleep in the open air without tents. Thin mattresses also will be provided but would be useful to bring air mattresses if you want to sleep more comfortable. There are bathrooms and shower facilities, kitchen and also a sauna in the house.
The workcamp takes place in Gargantilla del Lozoya, small village of Sierra Norte about 80km away from Madrid. Gargantilla is part of several municipalities of the Valley of Lozoya, most of these are little villages but you can find all you need to live. It’s near Buitrago del Lozoya or Rascafría.
The partner is De Amicitia and with this project we want to offer a different type of workcamp/experience open for volunteers with more age and experience.
This project will have ONLY vegan food and is by itself a promotion of environmental sustainable lifestyle.
Sleeping bag required. Capacity to live in tents and in the countryside. Volunteers shall be prepared to detoxify and eat light food. We will give priority to the volunteers with extra knowledge such as nutrition, veganism, meditation, yoga and artistic skills, as the project will have no campleader and will be self-managed so the motivation letter (and maybe a Skype interview) is necessary.
