Rucs de la Serralada is a donkey farm / reserve where we offer socioeducational services, it is located in a natural and appropriate environment where everyone can interact with animals and at the same time we preserve this species in our lands, as it is in serious retreat.
The facilities consist of two hectares of land located in the middle of nature, well connected (only 10 minutes from Barcelona) and where there are eleven copies of donkeys with a good interaction between them and people, we have achieved a group of Animal balanced, good character and very social where all are complemented.
We try to raise people's awareness of animals and nature by interacting with them. Learn the basic management of animals, know their characteristics and singularities, take care of the donkeys while making a livestock farm, perform animal routes, take walks within the grounds with children on the back of the donkey, or load our bag or backpack at donkey and discover the landscapes and places of cultural interest, the flora and fauna of the Marina de la Serralada Park.
Our children, apart from the desire to be in direct contact with donkeys, learn to value them and take care of them growing in ethical values.
Addressed to families, parents, children, adventurers, elderly people, schools, houses and special education centers (along with the centers involved, with professionals that track it, we give donkeys to apply activities of therapeutic value).
In short, it is about making them useful in order to continue preserving them in our territory.
We need a mini tractor with shovel to carry out the daily tasks and projects that we want to achieve for the improvement of the environment, so that we can have more time to care for animals and keep them in very good condition.
Description of the project. Main features, strengths and differentials.
In ancient times the donkey was very common in any activity related to the transport of cargo or people, work of crops and harvesting, trilling in the era, forestry work, monitoring of herds, movement of mills, water springs and water pumps, etc. With the industrialization its effectiveness was disappearing in front of the engine machines.
Retrieving traditional uses or for the socio-educational, eco-tourism, therapeutic, leisure and some agricultural and forestry activities, it is possible to maintain this species and preserve it in our country.
Between Celia and Carles we carry on this activity, apart from doing maintenance of animals, we also do the land, all by hand, such as carrying straw and transporting it, cleaning manure and carrying them to the femer, repairing roads, clearing , transport feed or materials, transport junk, etc.
The projects we want to carry out are improvements and maintenance:
Plow some bundles to favor the growth of grass. Take advantage of rainwater by guiding it to the existing pools. Also install a pair of troughs fed with a solar pump and a transportable metal fence. Create a natural pool where autochthonous species of amphibians are developed and have more shelters where to shelter animals
We do not dedicate ourselves to simply taking walks for children, what we want is to communicate and appreciate them as noble animals that are involved in the care and maintenance of donkeys and the environment to grow in values .
We are very happy with what we do and with the results that it gives, to see the happiness that is carried out, all the people who visit us are waiting for us more.
We have two hectares where the donkeys live. One is exclusively because the donkeys enjoy it and the other is shared between donkeys and visitors.
-Exclusive hamlet for donkeys:
This area, with bush vegetation and with some trees, consists of beams where the donkeys are rooted, with lots of vegetation that do not take advantage of the animals. Erosion affects parts of the terrain.
-Drops and visitors' workshop:
It's the area where we did the facilities; the ship where they spend the night the donkeys, toilets, changing room, barn, area of material, etc., aside from open areas and shrubs. The roads in the rain are very hot.
The purpose of the crowdfunding campaign is to achieve a MINITRACTOR WITH WINDOW. In this way we could carry out projects for the improvement of the space, make the roads easier, transport straw, plow the grass areas for good regeneration of grasses, clean manure the roads and the ship where they sleep Donkeys, change the soil regularly, transport pruning remains and materials and spend more time and effort on the physical maintenance of animals and better adapt space, for the preservation of the species.
Why this is important
We started the project six years ago and with many difficulties and effort we achieved it. For four years now we are doing the activities with our visitors and with great satisfaction.
This motivates us to move on and offer better attention and better facilities for both visitors and donkeys. We ask everyone that you collaborate in this challenge to get a tool that is vital today in the work of farmers and livestock ... the MINITRACTOR.
In this project, you not only collaborate in acquiring a machine, but also helping to preserve the RUCS species in our land. Think more than 7,000 years ago that the donkeys have been helping us to survive and now we can not turn their backs on them.
Experience aimed at everyone, people and entities with an interest in nature, to experience experiences and to make children happy at home.
We offer you a hearty place and we invite you to become a part of it.
Seeing the lack of dedication that many donkeys suffer, we decided to help them and the experience has always been positive. Six years ago we started to start the project and for four (October 2014) that is underway, always very motivated and happy. Now let's go for the fifth year! .
Our Team consists of:
I came from the fans of the donkeys from a small age, the construction was my way of support until when the crisis of 2011 came to an end I was unemployed. It was time to do what I had always wanted and I threw myself ... towards the donkeys.
La Celia, I come from the trade of flowers and others. As in Carles, I was unemployed and started the project because the sensitivity with children is my strength, so we both get together.
Also we have collaborators disinterested as Lourdes (great person), Joan is a beekeeper or Jordi who has always been surrounded by donkeys, mules or horses, they always teach us many interesting things. In addition, the sponsors and collaborators like Salva and others give us a hand.
