Located right in the centre of Cardedeu (44km from Barcelona), Esbioesfera has become a hub for local, organic culture. It has a unique and peaceful setting, with an outdoor terrace underneath a living-willow pergola. On the same premises, they cultivate more than 40 varieties of tomatoes in a 1000m2 vegetable garden. Inside the house, all sorts of courses and workshops take place, ranging from organic gardening, bee-keeping and permaculture, to bread- and beer-making, via basketry, woodwork, dress-making, and Transition Town courses.

Jordi and Gemma created Esbioesfera in 2011 at Cardedeu (Vallès Oriental), with a desire to raise awareness of the importance of local, organic food through their eco-vegetarian restaurant and school of self-sufficiency.

For them, the main objective is to convince the people who pass by, that it is possible to eat without meat and fish and feel completely satisfied, as well as eating healthily, and helping to save the planet from the very table at which one is sat. Whether it is the meals they cook, the vegetable garden they cultivate, or the courses they offer, they are constantly raising awareness of such issues.
