    Beschreibung

    We are a german couple, Karsten & Christina, living on an organic farm on El Hierro, Canary Islands. We have fruit trees of all kinds and some animals (dog, cats, rabbits, chicken and ducks). Karsten is a Freediving Instructor, Christina a Personal Coach, journalist and eco farmer. The finca is isolated in wild nature 200m above sea-level, close to the seaside and cliffs. The next beaches (Charco Manso, Tamaduste) are in 45 minutes walking distance (some minutes by car). We live off grid with 100% solar power and reuse our water, trying to live as sustainable as possible. At the moment we can offer a stay in a tent. We need help to build the infrastructure for the outdoor life of the workaway community.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    You can learn about organic farming, ecological lifestyle, get a lot of inspiration of how to life a simple and joyful life close to nature. We both work a lot in personal development and are also happy to give some impulses. Between April and October, our place is a paradise for ornithologists. The close by lava caves are home and breeding place for "pardelas" (petrels). You have a 200 degrees seaview, with sunset and sundown, an incredible clear sky with stars.

    WE CAN ONLY OFFER A STAY IN A TENT FOR SOMEONE WITH EXCELLENT CARPENTER SKILLS. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A VERY REMOTE PLACE.
    We need help on our farm, mainly to build wooden structures (tiny house, compost toilet, storage space, outdoor chillout zones etc), do water installations (ponds, maintenance and optimization of irrigation system for trees) and prepare land & plant in parts of our land which need to be terraced. There is a lot of tasks to do, step by step. If you are able to build stonewalls with natural lava stones or if you have excellent carpenter skills we would be extremely delighted.

    Tent. At the moment, a stay at our place is quite basic. We will provide you with food. Our home is on the farm too and we will prepare all meal in our kitchen. As we are both vegetarians, sometimes eating fish, you should be comfortable with this diet. Also we prefer non smokers.

    The birdsong of pardelas (petrels) is fascinating and funny at the same time. Their nesting season is between April and October. Listening their "concert" is happening specially in dark of the night . The next village with public transportation is about 1,5 kilometers away. The next beaches where you can swim (Charco Manso / Tamaduste) are in 45 minutes reach. Its a beautiful scenic walk. Of course it is just some minutes by car. El Hierro´s peace and tranquility attracts nature lovers. There is no elaborate touristic infrastructure and no nightlife as you would expect it in other places on the Canaries. Still there are plenty of street festivals and parties. Especially in summer. Karsten offers freediving courses - if you are interested in prices & courses search for "Freediving El Hierro". There are special offers for our workawayers. Other outdoor activities can be walking, hiking, paragliding, swimming, scuba-diving, snorkeling, mountain biking and many more.
