    Beschreibung

    We are Sanne and Marc, a couple from the Netherlands. For work, Marc teaches singing and theatre and he installs solar systems. Sanne used to edit study books, but now got a job caring for horses.

    We are living with our 5 year old boy, a cat and two horses in a beautiful field in the valley above Torvizcón. Our place is about 30 minutes from Órgiva in Andalucia, Spain.
    We live in a yurt, basic but comfortable. We have electricity from a solar system and a water connection. We're now working on a little shower house and we use a super basic compost toilet.

    We're trying to live in a sustainable way. We eat mostly organic and/or local and stick to a healthy - mostly vegetarian - diet. We plan to grow some vegetables, recycle, try to reduce plastics and chemicals. Also, we drive an electric car that charges with the solar system. Sanne likes to care for the horses and she plans to start a veggie patch in spring.

    Then there is the project of building a second yurt from scratch, that we're slowly working on. We have walls and doorframes and we are making the roofpoles smooth, which takes forever, because there's 80 of them. Next step is to make the roofpoles all the right size and make them fit the holes in the crown.

    In the next couple of months we need help with:
    - The household: mostly dishes (they keep growing back every day!), some cooking, some cleaning maybe.
    - Gathering and chopping wood.
    - Tidying up and cleaning in and around the house of the neighbour which we used as storage space.
    - Pruning olive trees and spreading compost
    - Starting the veggie patch
    - Horse care (which means mostly: mucking out horse poo)
    - ... I probably forgot something...
    - After all that: working on the second yurt

    If you come to stay with us, your work will depend on what needs doing at that time. We'll be happy to share our knowledge of off-grid living, solar systems and electric cars if you're interested.

    Arbeit

    We need 1 or 2 people to help us. You're welcome to come for any amount of time!

    We're looking for people who are okay with being in a quiet place. We're in the middle of nature. We always share the big meal of the day, which is mostly lunch and sometimes dinner. The other meals you'll mostly eat by yourself, as we prefer our sleepy breakfasts alone, and evenings are private time for us. Sometimes we'll have a nice evening together though, we do like a bit of social too :-)
    We prefer people who can work independently and show initiative. We're not always doing the same tasks as our volunteers, as we can have different types of jobs to do and we also have work and a child. We trust our volunteers to be responsible for their tasks and keep track of their own hours.

    Activities:
    - The household: mostly dishes (they keep growing back every day!), some cooking, some cleaning maybe.
    - Gathering and chopping wood.
    - Tidying up and cleaning in and around the house of the neighbour which we used as storage space.
    - Pruning olive trees and spreading compost
    - Starting the veggie patch
    - ... I probably forgot something...
    - After all that: working on the second yurt

    If you don't have your own transport, we can pick you up somewhere or you can take public transport.

    Things to do in free time:
    Without transport you can go for walks in the mountains around us and to Torvizcón, or just hang out in the garden or in your caravan. If you're good with the horses (we'll find out by meeting them together), you're welcome to spend time with them and take them for walks (no riding).
    With your own transport or public transport:
    - Go to Orgiva, the main town of the area, with lots of activities like concerts and yoga classes
    - Go up into the Sierra Nevada for beautiful hiking
    - Relax at one of the beaches, at about 45 minutes drive.
    - Granada is about 1,5 hour away
