I am looking after an old Mallorcan "possession" which is a building of some 900m2 on 26000m2 of land. Workaways are invited to come and get involved as much as they would like. The main tasks right now are preparation and development of the vegetable garden as well as cutting and collecting the firewood. Any permaculture experience is welcome.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
Hello. I live alone with my little darling daughter Aziza who is 16 months. We live 5 minutes walk from the beach in the laid back surfer town of El Medano, Tenerife.
Aziza and I came here from the UK one year ago, and have a wonderful community and a wonderful life here. However, I am by trade a yoga and pilates teacher and a massage therapist, and the fact is that as a single mum I just don't get more than the odd moment to do any exercise. While it could be said that motherhood itself is one big transcendence trip in a deeply yogic sense, I really would appreciate a bit of time on my actual yoga mat. Moreover I need some focussed time to gear up for a return to work by redoing my website etc. I feel a bit stuck and paralysed, and really need a few hours to myself to be able to move ahead with my projects.
Region: Salto de las Rosas - Near San Rafael - Mendoza province
Please note that we have availability for June 2014 and then from August 2014 to the end of the year.
We prefer volunteers over the age of 25 who traveling as a couple rather than single travelers.
We are a family of 3. Him an American, her a Brit and our 14 year old daughter. We have 4 cats and 2 dogs.
We are all (with the exception of one of the cats) very friendly, sociable and flexible in our outlook to life.
This is a relaxed, laid back volunteer work environment and if you are looking for a break from the party hostels, late drunken nights, and not staying in one place for more than a couple of nights then this might fit the bill. We are in a rural location but we do have a village nearby where we go to regularly for supplies and volunteers can always come with us if they need to stock up.
In brief, our arrangement is that each volunteer works for 4 hours a day, Monday to Friday or a total of 20 hours per week, in exchange for very comfortable accommodation and provision of food for breakfast which you prepare for yourself. If you wish, you can join us for dinner 3 times a week, on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday where you will help with cooking and clean up afterwards.
Our location is 30km South East of San Rafael which is a town in the Mendoza Province of Argentina and not in or near the city of Mendoza. Please check a map before making an inquiry so that you know where we are. Additionally, please put San Rafael in the subject line of your contact so that we know you have read this bit.
