Our community belongs to the Hare Krsna social movement and we have a nice place (2.5 acres) near Malaga (Spain).
We have about 10 people living in the community.
There is a central building where our temple is situated and and a few houses where our residents live.
On Sundays we receive lots of guests who come to participate in the temple program.
There are big gardens and 2 plots dedicated to agriculture and fruit trees.
Due to the sunny and hot weather we grow some tropical fruits such as avocados, mangos, chirimoyas, guavas, bananas and a variety of flowers and vegetables.
Our place is very well connected:
-Airport: 10 min
-Malaga city: 15 min
-Beach: 7 min
-Train to Malaga, Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Marbella... 5 min
- Country side: 15 min
Just next to our property there is a beautiful botanical garden with a very peaceful atmosphere.
Our diet is lacto vegetarian and as such milk is in a lot of our foods. Vegans do stay with us and can navigate the menu to some degree.
We serve breakfast and lunch, we do not serve dinner but there is always some fruits, and sweets.
As we do abstain from smoking and drinking alcohol our guest are asked to do the same.
We ask for a medical insurance that covers you in Spain.
Help in the house
As we need our volunteers to help in the garden and in the kitchen, they can learn a lot about farming, as we try to grow our own food and in the kitchen they can learn about preparing very tasty vegetarian meals.
We need helpers all year round to keep gardens in good conditions: mowing, weeding, watering, trimming... and also to produce as much food possible from the vegetable garden which can produce all year round.
We also need help with the general maintenance of the project which includes mantaining our busy kitchen clean and occasionaly some building works
