Program Details

Located in the middle of a Mediterranean valley surrounded by hills, overlooking the Azahar golden coastline, between the ancient village of Peniscola and Benicassim city, you find “Wild Spirit Institute”. The project´s aims are many; from the conservation of the typical “Maquis” shrub-lands and reforestation of its native species, to promote environmental education through alternative ways of living focused on permaculture principles, sustainable projects, arts and multi-cultural workshops trying to get everyone involved: friends, companions, travellers, schools, families and small producers of the region as if our little piece of heaven was a place of learning, showing how it´s possible to live in harmony with nature. Little is accomplished yet, but gradually things will come together!


Activities & Shift

Ideally you should be able to stay for at least two weeks to a month as this is a large project needing time, patience and energy. You will be asked to help for 5 days, 5 hours per day and you´ll have every weekend off to enjoy the area.

The meals will be prepared together with the volunteers and are not considered working hours! The food is basic, focused mostly on a vegetarian menu, and a little bit of meat once in a while. But, we´re very flexible! 

Once the daily tasks are done, you can feel pretty free to do whatever you want. Creating arts, growing plants, playing with Chiara (my lovely four-legged friend), doing meditation, take long strolls through the wild or have a nice bike rides down the hills, along the dirty road towards the numerous sandy beaches. Feel free to leave your essence in this place!


Rules

Common sense! :)
