before you are writing us, please make sure that you have been reading all the information below, thank you.
please check the calendar.
a medium level of spanish is necessary.
for different reasons we prefer couples.
normally we are hosting people just two weeks (more less).
we are transforming a traditional banana-finca in the south of tenerife. you will be working with the vegetablegardens, the animals or the house, depending what needs to be done by the time. there is also always something to clean, create or repair.
the bananaplantation and the vegetable-fruitforest are eco and we try to live as natural as it is possible for us at the moment. it would be good if you have a similar timetable, sharing eating and cooking, doing yoga (no must, just an offer) in the morning. we usuallly go to bed quite early, also cause we are trying to start working in the morning before it is to hot, and we are breakfasting with the children before school.
we are looking for volunteers who are feeling conected with the nature and are willing to work with mother earth, the plants and the animals. you should be able to enjoy what you are doing here. It doesn t matter how long you are staying but you should feel like being a part of the project, also creating like it is your project, and not only seing it as a way to save money for traveling.
we are happy to teach and learn from/with you.
we are expecting proactive and motivated volunteers!
