Please read all of the text if you are interested in volunteering. The house is renovated watermill originally built by the Moors. It is a UNESCO heritage building, restored ecologically and built into the mountain side more than five hundred years ago.
The house runs on renewable energy and is on the outskirts of a village. There are amazing coastal and mountain walks with views of the sea. 9kms from the coast and town with it's cafes, castle and a beach voted Spain's finest beach. We do projects to help people and the world. When volunteers stay there is also time to relax and see the national park. There is the chance to hike, do activities, go to beach, have a beer and tapas, go sea kayaking or mountain biking.
I have hosted workshops in eco-design and do a global kitchen at a local world music and food night in a local eco-village. The mill during the day can be very busy with the development of International aid projects happening, marketing or construction. At night it is time to relax with award winning standard food, some of the time and basic traditional food at other times.
Helpers with skills whether they are graphic design, editing, marketing, architecture, eco construction, website design, Web development, NGO experience and so too are people to help with painting, gardening and mosaic making.
I work with people who live away from the mill on all sorts of social and environmental projects ranging from desert regeneration to helping rainforest projects. One of the pictures on the profile is of 10,000 acre of sub tropical forest we successfully fundraised for and purchased and prevented from being deforested in South America.
When people volunteer here, there is the chance to contribute to International conservation, sustainability, peace and social projects in various countries. The renovation of the building to the centre is now featured in the local mills museum.
The project is in the process of relocating to another location. A book and film project is being produced to include the work and findings of the mill, so it is still going to be feasible to host volunteers and do projects however the exact location has not yet been decided. So if you want to volunteer and have writing and editing skills and or NGO experience then get in contact and I can update on the latest and when I will be able to host again.

The watermill is a listed historical building in an authentic Spanish rural area near the coast.
The project is based in the mountains, surrounded by Cabo de Gata Natural Park. The area offers traditional rural environment with some amazing scenic mountain and coastal walks. There are mountain bikes here for volunteers to use and regular journeys into the town and into the park.
Volunteer help is always a mix of indoor and outdoor work. There are always options.
We usually go out and see the area, the beach parque natural go for a beer and tapas in local restaurants and bars or go to Almeria or Granada Skiing/snowboarding.
Private rooms or room sharing with one other. Single or double beds available. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and spacious.
Helpers interested in learning English/teaching Spanish and translation are most welcome.
