Incredibly Sustainable Fair– Can Pipirimosca
Description: Can Pipirimosca is an organic farm where living in a more simple and sustainable way is part of the activism for caring of the environment. The project is nowadays focused as the headquarters to support activities in towns (transition town, urban gardens, free market) as part of the enviromental activism. Can Pipi is a place based on permaculture principles. Deep ecology retreats take place to raise awareness. As it turned out that Firagost market (that we have been cooperating since 2008) will not happen this year, we will focus on preparing an event in the garden, an exchange market the first weekend of the workcamp and a Festival/Day with activities on Saturday 8th. The work will involve arrangement and improvements in the urban garden plus other tasks and preparations. See you soon!
Type of Work: The tasks will be to support the fair, building elements to be used in the fair, preparing the space of the garden, making posters, preparing workshops, during the fair assembly, making workshops, supporting activities,monitoring the situation. After the fair: Rearranging the space, making and participating in an evaluation, performing other tasks around the space of the fair. After the fair tasks will be different and include organic farms, and these may be tasks regarding gardening, recycling of materials and cleaning the space.
We will also support a couple of local projects during the workcamp. Activies and events are held there and in the town throughout the year. Ecology, coexistence, personal growth and education are the ultimate objectives of Can Pipirimosca.
Study Theme: Permaculture: Projection of documentaries, visits in the neighbouring farms, Deep ecology: workshops and group dynamics, Cities in transition, Apart from these topics, there will be also Open Spaces where the volunteers can prepare and implement their own workshops or activities.
Accommodation: Volunteers will sleep in a room inside the farm house with mattresses on the floor. There are also three double bunk beds. Outside the house there are two compostable toilets and four showers with warm water (solar energy). The food will be vegan. We will use organic seasonal fruits and vegetables that are produced in farms nearby. There is an oven where we bake bread and cereal products. We also buy rice and vegetables from local producers. Volunteers will help in preparing the food together with other members, if there is a scout group, we will coordinate cooking together.
