This is fast becoming our favourite time of the year! Early November saw the arrival of our awesome group of workaway volunteers from Germany, Poland, South Korea, Scotland and the U.S to help with this year’s olive harvest. The trees were looking so full, we cracked on for 3 days and managed to collect 1000 kilos from only half the valley. The best year yet!

There are leaflets and posters in bars and restaurants around the village of Riba-roja d’Ebre which contain a map showing each artwork location.
