Volunteering

at Can Torras rural retreat

If you want to learn about sustainable living in a very practical way or are exploring Catalonia on a tight budget, consider becoming a volunteer at Can Torras. We are hosts for three international volunteer organisations:

We are happy to share our experiences

renovating an old farmhouse, developing environmentally friendly ideas, creating an organic garden & living in one of the most beautiful parts of Spain. It is also great to hear about the experiences of volunteers from around the world who share our interests. Our aim is to share our vision of sustainable living with “the organic, the gentle, the elegant and beautiful” (E. F. Schumacher).

  • Up to 3 volunteers can stay with us for around 2 weeks
  • We ask for approximately 6 hours help per day, 5 days per week
  •  At weekends & in evenings we encourage volunteers to explore Catalonia
  • Volunteers live as family in our home, sharing meal times & stories
  • We are a very popular volunteer destination so book well in advance
