Incredible Sustainable Fair - Can Pipirimosca
Description: Can Pipirimosca is a permaculture project that is focused on supporting a change towards a more sustainable society by using local resources, reducing waste and living a more simply lifestyle. It started twenty years ago and on the last three years it has promoted an active change in town by starting the transition town movement and a urban garden.
The workcamp will give support to the Incredible Sustainable Fair, which is organized in the urban garden at the same time that Firagost, a big consumerism fair, is happening. Firagost is one of Valls biggest events, and the Fair at the urban garden aims to show and promote sustainable alternatives. After the Fair, volunteers will have the opportunity to visit and support three sustainable farms in the area.
