Hello there! We are looking for volunteers with lots of drive, energy and common sense who have a love of adventure, nature and the outdoors to work alongside us helping with a variety of tasks that include building, gardening, cleaning, painting etc.. Specifically volunteers who aren't afraid to get dirty!!
We have a beautiful, rural, two-hectare organic finca near the Spanish town of La Codosera but bordering the Portuguese nature reserve of the Serra Sâo Mamede. We are steadily transforming our land using permaculture practises and would love to teach you and learn from you :)
Our ideal volunteers would:
- be happy to live off the beaten track (although we do have a restaurant/bar a few kms down the road)
- be animal lovers - especially dogs and cats
- help with approximately 5 hours of tasks 5 days a week
We work hard for those 5 hours but what we offer in exchange for your help:
- comfortable beds
- all meals
-freshwater swimming pool (May-Oct only)
- tonnes of films, books, music
- beautiful nature and gorgeous walks from our door
- internet access
- company (if you want it) or peace and quiet (if you don't) :)
Looking forward to meeting you! :)
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We love to share ideas and recipes and have picked up so much great knowledge from previous volunteers...
Although we are off the beaten track, we have bikes so you can get to local sites and we will always take you to any local festivals that are going on while you are here (and there are lots!!)
We need help with all sorts of work in the garden, building and around the house - the tasks you do depend on your preferences and/skills. We all work really hard - please don't apply if you are looking for a cheap holiday! - but it's rewarding to share the experience and our volunteers return to us again and again and send their friends and family to volunteer with us too!
We have a double bedroom available for volunteers. Or a caravan at the top of the garden with beautiful views for those who want to be a little more in touch with nature :)
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
We have good wifi but as I teach a lot online from home, your hours would have to work around mine as when I have classes I have sole use of the wifi.
This host can provide space for campervans.
