Région: Canary Islands- FuerteventuraHola! I consider myself a daughter of Mother Earth and Father Sun. I am a mother of a ten year old daughter and a eleven year old son. We live in a rural area on the outskirts of the capital of Fuerteventura. I enjoy living in the countryside, where we have a greenhouse, garden and land to grow fruit and vegetables. During the year I teach art in school. My dream is to finish building a workshop with a room above with natural materials such as earth, wood, recyclables as a place to give classes, to teach and form a small school alternative, especially for children but also for older; and begin building a small geodesic dome on the ground to make a bathhouse, temascal, and a tipi for meetings, meditate, sing, play music, celebrate etc. Nací en Argentina, soy italiana de sangre, y me considero hija de la Madre Tierra y el Padre Sol. Soy madre de una hija diez años y un niño de once, vivimos en una zona rural, a las afuera de la capital de Fuerteventura. Me gusta vivir en el campo, tenemos una pequeña huerta, un jardín y terreno con frutales cultivados. Durante el año doy clases de arte en las escuelas. Mi sueño es terminar de construir un taller aquí en mi casa, con materiales naturales, tierra y madera y reciclaje, para poder dar clases y formar una pequeña escuelita alternativa, para pequeños y para grandes, con una habitación arriba, además de un pequeño domo geodésico, en el terreno, para hacer un temascal, y un tipi para tener un sitio para encontrarnos para meditar, cantar, tocar música, festejar...

Région: AlgarveWe are currently seeking volunteers for the 2013 season. We are keen to hear from people with "Hotel" type skills, cleaning, making beds, tidying the gardens, kitchen help and being part of the welcoming Team for our guests. Our place provides a very different kind of holiday experience for most people. We are not a luxury resort hotel, just a very old farm where we entertain a few guests. We believe that the essence of this place is the feeling of a shared community that develops after a very short time between most of our guests and the Team. The guests and workawayers often eat together, go shopping or take trips together. It is people with the skills to help our guests get the most out of their time that we hope will join us. We have space for two volunteer workers (or a couple plus 1 other) to help with a variety of odd jobs around and looking after our guests. We will be open from April till the end of October. Although around and about at the place clothing is a purely optional accessory, the emphasis is on the word optional, there's never any pressure on guests or workaways who simply feel more comfortable wearing clothes. We do hope that you'll enjoy it too. Please note that Chris and Ana are now managing the quinta so if you are interested in joining us here at the quinta with the dates you would like to come and your CV ..thanks
