    GREAT FRIENDSHIPS, GOOD VIBES & GREAT EXPERIENCES - Help us build something charming on the beautiful island Tenerife, Canaria Islands, SPAIN. We want to creat an oasis for people that want to enjoy life while they go about their professional life.

    Before we can really share our beautiful space there is a lot of renovation work to do. We want to offer different kind of areas, where people have different spaces to work, to relaxe, to communicate & cooperate, to do yoga, to medidate, to swim etc.
    Therefore volunteers can participate to create these different areas. Cleaning the garden, to do ground leveling, painting walls, get rid of the old stuff, make new floors, create beautiful chilling spaces with wood.

    **HANDS-ON MENTALITY REQUIRED**
    -->Actually we are specifically searching for people that know how to build wooden structures (carpenter), kitchen or other construction related things e.g. to work with tiles, cement, steel etc. <--

    Besides of that: We are looking for an additional volunteer that takes care of our garden. Experiences in permacultur are required.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will have the chance to discover and to appreciate the natur, cultural canary life and one of the most prominent buildings on the island - the Basilica of Candelaria.

    Workawayers will benefit from the way of working hand-in-hand together. There will be a lot of international people that exchange their cultures, their food, their feelings & expectations of life and their languages.

    Every Workawayer has a own private space where she/he can sleep. You will get every morning a breakfast where the day can start together with all other Workawayers and hosts. During the breakfast we want to share our next projects of the day.

    In the evening we like play games and talk a lot about the journeys to learn one from the other and plan new things. Everything in that language that you want to speak with us :) If you want to focus more on your innerself, there is a lot of space in the nature where you can do some Yoga, meditation or other spritual exercises. For sure, you won´t be alone in this regard :)

    The food we provide for the evening mostly is VEGAN food, made with lot of love and care :)

    We are very excited to have you here.
