The coop works at local level in different municipalities on their rural region called "la Garrotxa", located in the north of Catalonia. The main objective is to build a more resilient and sustainable future. Resilience Earth works in one municipality called Sant Feliu de Pallerols, with the town council and some local organization to regenerate a piece of land (4 hectares) with using permaculture and bioconstruction techniques. In this project are involved different groups of the region (youth, elders, youth migrants)
