Be a farmer for one day: paella or calçotada team cooking


Visit an organic allotment  and learn through games about sustainable food, agroecology, seasonal crops, and Mediterranean plants. Your volunteering helps to maintain this allotment. You will cook an authentic Catalonian meal (called calçotada) or paella as part of a team.

Calçots are long, thin onions, and are a typical Catalan crop that is harvested between January and April. The calçots are placed on grills over a wood fire where they are cooked, eaten and then served with an almond-based sauce called romesco and accompanied with sausage and bread.
