My name is Lynn and I love other travelers, cultures, and languages. This amazing eco-property needs a Spanish-speaking Project Coordinator from now until October for one month minimum to help work together on finishing the project!

You will work with a mix of locals and expats, bridging the gap between Nica ways and western efficiencies to assist in the creation of a "best of both worlds" sustainable eco-property. Lots of opportunities for mixing with the locals and helping in the local community. Improve your Spanish or teach English in your leisure or while you work!
The project is a 1-Acre Beautiful Eco Property near San Juan del Sur Nicaragua with ocean view . Completely off grid with Solar, Compost, Greywater reuse, Permaculture, Organic Gardens, 20 mins to town
I will be there from June-Oct to put finishing touches on the project, document some processes, get the gardens going, and train the local staff that I already have to maintain and keep the place running when I am not there. However, I'll be working full-time for my remote job while I'm there, so I need some help! I have a wonderful Coordinator right now, but she is transitioning out after almost 2 months. She has made really good progress, but there is still more to do.
So I'm looking for a fluent Spanish/English speaker to assist with these projects and more. I need someone organized and detail-oriented who is comfortable managing people in a respectful and motivating manner. Right now, there is a caretaker house, a bungalow and the main house. 50 fruit trees have been planted, but lots of landscaping and organic gardens remain. Other projects include redoing the compost hacienda and putting up some fencing around the gardens and I just need help hiring people and coordinating these things. You do not have to do the actual work.
English, some Spanish, some French
You will have a detached casita / bungalow to yourself with own bathroom and small efficiency. Plus use of the main house 50 yards away. Very charming and comfortable suite with sitting area and queen-size bed and/or bunk beds. Includes fan, hot water, gorgeous open-air shower. Air con is not necessary in this location. The cook makes 2 meals a day served in the main house and you can make your own other meal(s) in the casita.
After work, there are multiple beaches within a few minutes, wildlife viewing, surfing, town life in San Juan del Sur, and lots of restaurants, bars, and artistic or cultural activities. Bus transport is 1km away, but you can be sometimes be accommodated by the truck/driver on the property as well.
