  • Description


    We are a beautiful, large Yoga retreat centre in rural Andalusia. We have three yoga halls and accommodation for up to 65 people. We host yoga holidays, yoga teacher trainings, Permaculture Design Courses and other holistic or integral groups. We are also home to a non-profit Permaculture Project.

    We are currently building a food forest and have extensive organic olive groves. The centre is located on 50 acres of farm land. We have our own organic vegetable garden, horses, donkey's, alpacas, goats and sheep, two dogs, and 100 chickens. We make our own olive oil, olives and produce eggs and organic veggies and fruit. The project is focussed on reforesting, reversing desertification in southern Spain and farming olives holistically.

    Volunteers help out in our non-profit permaculture project in exchange for delicious organic veggie food, yoga, use of our facilities, comfortable accommodation and great company. Looking for hard-working, good-natured, strong, easy-going and flexible helpers! The help can include: watering, strimming, mowing, harvesting, planting, creating beds, feeding animals, emptying compost and compost toilets, olive harvesting and help with eco-buildings, which are part of the permaculture project.

    In exchange you get to partake of amazing organic vegetarian buffets three times per day, participate in Yoga Classes and stay in a beautiful sustainable house in an olive grove.

    We are more interested in volunteers who can come for a minimum of 3 months, and have some farming and/or gardening experience. You must have either a European passport or European residency.

    We also have an immediate need for a social media, blogger, wordpress geek who can help us promote our permaculture project!!! We have another immediate need for a guy to help with building a meditation garden and an eco-building project, helping to build a kitchen for the house of our permaculture volunteers.
