My wife Rowena and I have just recently acquired a farm in a beautiful part of Spain which we are renovating to use as a Lifestyle Centre, promoting health and wellbeing. Once completed, we intend it to be the "go to" place for health, fitness and overall wellness.

You will be part of building something special. Workawayers will work 25hrs per week in exchange for accommodation and yummy, healthy meals. If a healthy lifestyle is your interest we will happily share our knowledge with you.
Almeria is famous for its plethora of greenhouses that form the basis for the massive supply of fruits and vegetables to many European countries.
"One of Almería's most famous natural spots is the Cabo de Gata-Níjar Natural Park. This park is of volcanic origin, and is the largest and most ecologically significant marine-terrestrial space in the European Western Mediterranean Sea.". Uleila Del Campo is 45 minutes from the city of Almeria.
We live just outside the village of Uleila Del Campo but just 15 minutes walk from the village centre. However, as it is peaceful and isolated, it would suit people who enjoy the peace and quiet away from the hectic hubbub of the city.. We are on a 40 acre site with lots of olive trees, orange orchard and almond orchard, plus many assorted fruit trees.
As part of our cultural exchange, volunteers will be able to walk into the local village and experience rural Spanish village life, speak with the locals in Spanish and be a part of the social scene. We also have a resident Spanish farm help who speaks only Spanish and will enhance the cultural experience. We can facilitate travel to the local beaches of Almeria and Mojacar which are only 45 minutes away by car.
We are looking for a range of skills and would welcome you with open arms if you are skilled in carpentry, plumbing, plastering, tiling, gardening and landscaping. Ours is an old farmhouse and so doors and windows can do with repair and strengthening. We are also upgrading our water system and modernising We have a number of fruit trees and olive trees so someone who understands pruning etc and can teach us would be very welcome. We have a lot to get done so even if you don't have these skills but have a "can do/willing to get stuck in" attitude then you're also just who we're looking for. If you are a project manager with time on your hands then come join us and help us plan well and turn our dreams into reality!! Additionally, would also love to have someone with good computing skills.
As we are Seventh-day Adventist Christians, you will not be required to work on Saturday, which is the Sabbath. In fact, travellers will enjoy the benefit of down time from Friday afternoon before sunset until Sunday morning for we do not work on Saturdays, it is a day of rest in commemoration of God's creative genius! You can join us when we go to church or not; we strictly adhere to the Bible and simply ask you to respect our beliefs. (This does not stop us from being fun-loving, happy people, which we are!) Even though our religious beliefs are Christian/Bible based, we are happy to host all or no beliefs.
We live in a large Spanish cortijo. Workawayers will sleep in the same building as ourselves. You might have to room share with one other person. The bathrooms are also shared. We offer two healthy vegan/plant-based meals per day with a light supper if necessary.
