    Description

    Hi, my name is Paul and I'm from London.

    I have recently bought a building in a beautiful pine forest on the spine of a volcano on the Island of La Palma in the Canary Islands.

    I'm looking for some industrious guys and girls who are very practical and can work to renovate the building and regenerate the huge garden, weeding and planting to create a stunning garden and orchard.

    My aim is to create a secret enchanted garden full of beautiful colours and plants.

    The living conditions well be fairly harsh early on and until I get everything working and cleaned up.

    If I find the right team then there is no limit to how long they can stay.

    The travellers will enjoy the peace and tranquility of being amongst nature, working with plants, creating a garden and being surrounded by the native wildlife. They will have the reward of creating something beautiful.

    I'm looking to create a group of travellers who will be happy to help create a stunning garden in this beautiful valley and also assist in renovation works to the farmhouse.

    Travellers will be required to have some of the following skills, building, carpentry, painting, decorating, landscaping, gardening, cooking, cleaning.

    This is a long term project which may take a number of years. I'm hoping to find a number of travellers that i can rely on who would like to join the project long term.

    The nearest bar is 5 minutes away.
