We receive many requests from people wishing to just have a look at Flores de Vida. You will easily understand that it is simply not possible to answer all the requests. Visiting the place takes time and needs our availability. Also receiving new people, even full of goodwill and desire to lend a hand, request availability. There are a lot of details to know for the daily live (the organization of the place and the food, the tasks to be accomplished, where to find the tools, etc.) and it takes some time to have its bearings and be autonomous. And I don’t always have time for that. This will be different when we will be several permanents.
NB: If you have already been at Flores de Vida you can come outside the organized activities. However making sure that it is possible to welcome you at a certain time.
We present the following possibilities to discover Flores de Vida, if you have never been here before. Use the contact form to organize a visit that is not listed on the agenda.
NB: Whatever the option, note that Flores de Vida remains a raw-vegan place (no animal products and no cooked food), without alcohol, tobacco or various drugs. And that dogs and cats are not allowed. (See: Life in Flores de Vida.)
- Participate in an organized event

Participation is above all an exchange, a collaboration, a journey towards a common objective.
If you feel concerned by the values that Flores de Vida promotes, then come and share with us the daily life of the project, both in terms of the work and maintenance of the place, as well as the sharing of everything that makes life in Flores de Vida (yoga, singing, dancing, music, meditation, etc.).
There are different ways to participate. If you want to participate even more actively in the adventure, welcome to you. If you have skills that you want to value, there’s room for you to express yourself. If no other options are indicated, contact us via our form if necessary. You can participate…
- on the land, by coming for an activity session.
- remotely, from home (translations, website management, etc.).
- through financial support.
- by spreading the project around you and on social networks.
- by ordering Flores de Vida products.
- by coming to live in Flores de Vida to build the project on a daily basis.
There are a lot of people that have already taken part in the creation, maintaining and growing of Flores de Vida. On this page we present you the main characters and name some of the uncounted helpers and supports as a gesture of gratitude.
Those who have actively supported the project for at least two weeks or provided financial support of at least €50 will be named as Actresses and Actors and given free access to the next Fiesta Cruda as a thank you.
The school of ecological life takes shape. Are you participating in the adventure? Would you like to leave a viable planet for your children, your grandchildren? Mankind needs precursor places to prepare for a future of harmony.
Flores de Vida is situated between plantations and rural area about five kilometres distant from the next village called Maella and only to reach by dirt roads. There is no public transport and virtually no private traffic from Maella to Flores de Vida.
You’ll be familiar with Wwoofing and Workaway: The exchange of labor and support for shelter and food without payment. And even if this basic idea already has the additional intention of bringing together a wide variety of people to broaden their horizons and understanding, to exchange and spread knowledge and skills, to learn from each other, we want to go one step further.

Once a year we organize a festival on the land, the Fiesta Cruda.
An occasion to meet and celebrate the Life !
It is also an opportunity for all those who like to get to know the place, the project and the actors. We want to use the season of figs and grapes to enjoy the life together and have fun. To exchange with each other, to get to know each other (better) and to learn from each other.
Three days of meetings around life, global health and permaculture.
* 3 days of meetings to celebrate life
* 3 days to experience a lively and simple diet: fruit picked from the tree, raw vegetables
* 3 days to sing, dance, laugh, etc.
* 3 days of workshops: yoga, chi-kong, acro-yoga, massage, etc.
* 3 days of talks and sharing
* 3 self-created days
We enjoy simple food, simple dwellings, simple convenience.

Basically the normal everyday life in Flores de Vida differs from that of an event like a session. It also depends on the present people, the season and the weather. And just as unexpected events can confuse any plan, in Flores de Vida we usually have a high degree of freedom to shape each day anew completely different from the previous ones.

We ask you to arrive with your own tent, mattress and sleeping bag, if this is easily possible. Otherwise you can use one of our small stock of tents of different sizes. In a small wood there are pleasant places to place them.

Nutrition is one of the main pillars of Flores de Vida and you will probably find the explanations for it here in the future. The diet is plant-based, raw and from natural or organically grown foods, preferably seasonal and regional.
Continue reading The food
In Flores de Vida there are no obligatory meals and no fixed meal times. We invite you to discover and observe your own body awareness and to follow it. Basically, eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full. Drink when you’re thirsty.

We see no place for pets in Flores de Vida. Cats are predators that become a danger to birds and lizards. Dogs tend to dig, bark and mark. They can show aggression towards other dogs and also humans. We want to avoid these potential problems by rejecting the presence of both species.

We count ordinary legal drugs (alcohol, caffeine, nicotine) as well as various illegal substances. We do not want them to be consumed in Flores de Vida and that you bring them with you.
