Karen & David, met at Nottingham University studying agriculture & nutrition

but they grew up at opposite ends of England, in Yorkshire & Wiltshire. They share a love of travel, great food, gardening & all things ecological.

For seven wonderful years they lived with their young family in the Caribbean island of Dominica in the late 1980s.

There was a brief sojourn back in the UK in the beautiful city of Bath in the 1990s, where Karen began a gourmet food delivery service and David worked for the organic certification body, the Soil Association. In the year 2000 they were on the move again, this time to a new life in Catalonia & their forever home, Can Torras! David works for an international organic accreditation service, whilst Karen began renovating property & looking after the ever-changing menagerie, guests & volunteers who stay with them.

In Catalonia

Karen and David have found good food & great company, but with so many projects, they search for the secret of the 28 hour day to enjoy it all! However, with very little persuasion, they will take a break in the evening & join guests under the pergola for a glass of wine.
