Sol y Vida

Sol y Vida, It is paradise on earth which is why Kate named our little piece of it L'hort del Parais. Josep Maria and Patricia started the project to create a meaningful job for their son Oscar who was born with William's syndrome. In Spain disabled people are not integrated in society and are often marginalized. We admire people who make a difference and know that changing the ways of the world begins at your own doorstep. It is a real highlight of our week when Oscar and Daina come to deliver the weekly veg and fruit and we share it amongst the team. We also go and visit them with the children and Oscar teaches them how to care for our tomatoes, how to plant aubergines and selects the sweetest berries for them.

On a clear day you can see Mallorca from there and it is an extremely peaceful place just 15 mins from BCN centre. Truly paradise on earth run by angels. It also makes a gorgeous wedding venue too with gardens, plentiful flowers, an organic pool and amazing views – I actually got to know it whilst working as a wedding planner and sourcing locations. When I decided to create my own business I knew immediately that I wanted part of our profit to go to worthy causes and this project felt just right. More are in the pipeline. Images ©
