Hello, we are a small family - Michael, Frederik (4,5) and Emma. We live in an ecological/alternative neighborhood and run a ecological Cherimoya forest with over 150 trees in 5 min walking distance from the next beach :D

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
If you want you can learn something about permaculture, sustainibility, veganism (We live 95% vegan for over 10 years), raw veganism and nonviolent communication during your visit. We all eat a whole plant based diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegs from the lands nearby and buy seeds for sprouting from an organic wholeseller. In Cherimoya season we eat many cherimoyas and buy little other fruits. We eat two fruit meals a day and have a meal of steamed veggies or sprouts with a salad in the evening.
We are taking care of our trees, so that they can thrive and we too. In Michaels work as a life coach, empathic listener, nonviolent communication trainer and mediator, he helps people to create lasting changes, heal emotional pains from past experiences (psychotrauma) and to solve inner and outer conflicts, so they can live life to the fullest.

When contacting us, please put our names in the greeting. That way we know that you have at least red our profile and don't send a random message, to which we won't reply.
During your stay (in a hut or a tent) you can enjoy Cherimoyas (from October till March) and Avocados ripe from the trees. Cherimoya is one of the tastiest and healthiest fruits on earth :) we have very basic facilities, like an outdoor kitchen and a compost toilet and spend most of our time outside and hope you enjoy doing the same. But it is good to be prepared :) We can use the warm water shower of our neigbour (5 minutes away).
We only accept volunteers for a trial time of 2 weeks. If this time works for both sides, you are welcome to stay longer.
We have only limited internet available through our phones. You can use internet through a hotspot also on your devices after personal agreement.
We live plant based and would like the kitchen to be kept at least vegetarian, with as little processed food, as possible.
When contacting us, please answer following questions :
¿ Where would you like to sleep?
¿ How long do you plan to stay with us?
Nerja is the next bigger city and has many beautiful beaches and tourist activities. You can also go biking, climbing or hicking in the mountains or along beaches (we have 2 rubber boats available). We can provide detailed informations on that and have some materials available.
We have 3 cats living on our land.
It is important for us that helpers talk about problems when they occur and we can find ways to solve them together.
We like calm and peaceful people (only non smokers), that know how to work independently and are looking forward to your message!
