  • Description


    Hello, we are a couple who are renovating a Finca , ( small holding ) and revitalising its land. We want to create a center for natural healing, using clays and herbs in our therapies. We are working without machinery wherever possible to create a natural environment to grow food and herbs . We are at the early stages of this project . The help needed is working on the land, growing the herbs and food. renovation work and development on the Finca . The location of the property is an ideal place to spend time . It is on a cliff edge at the sea , overlooking a beach to one side , the backdrop to the property is the Sierra Nevada mountains , and just a half hour walk to the centre of the nearest town . ( Nerja ) we would like workaways to work 5 hrs a day , 5 days a week . The accomation we offer is a small, wooden house at the Finca .We will provide snacks during work . Breakfast / & dinner Monday to Fri , we usual take Saturday & Sunday off ourselves so we would like you to cook for yourself those days . We have a dog, who is friendly, but energetic. As there is a lot to learn in regards to the work we are ideally looking for somebody to come for a longer period, 1 year or longer, with the first month as a trial, to see if we are compatible.
