  • Description

    Description

    My name is Ada and I have been living in Lanzarote (a beautiful island in the Canary Islands) for 18 years. Two years ago, I bought a house in ruins that I am rebuilding with bioconstruction techniques.

    The house is located in a beautiful village called Maguez, 7 kilometres from the beach and surrounded by beautiful landscapes. There is the opportunity to enjoy free activities like yoga and trekking in the village and surrounding volcanic landscape.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I offer healthy food and language exchange (Spanish) and I am also willing to share my bicycle and the art studio once it is built.
    I also have wonderful friends with whom to share some wonderful moments.

    Help

    There are many different projects that you can get involved in according to your skills and interests, for example:
    - Bioconstruction works around the house, e.g. build a dry toilet and a pond with biofiltration. Any colaborative ideas to help with bioconstruction are welcome.
    - Yoga teacher: We have a beautiful room for activities and I would love for someone to start teaching yoga there.
    - Help with my son: Someone with educational skills and patience to help my 12 year old son with homework etc.
    - General help around the house, garden and Airbnb space that we are renting out.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Lanzarote and especially the rural north is not served very well with public transportation but it is very easy to hitch-hike or share rides with people who make the same route as you. I have a car and enjoy going to the nearby beach.
