    Description

    Hi, we are looking for help setting up our permaculture garden and are about to do a renovation to part of a finca first built in 1652 so that we can live there. This is the first time for us to have some space to set up raised garden beds and to tend to the variety of trees on the land, so we are also learning. We would also like to plant more trees from cuttings and seeds that we can collect. There is an agroturism business run from the property but you will not be expected to work within the business. We are looking for volunteers in exchange for accommodation, we are happy to provide breakfast.

    Mallorca is a beautiful place to visit. We have a great property with lots of space to enjoy it. Nick is fluent in both Spanish & English so we like to practice our Spanish but the primary language is English.

    Accommodation

    Private room, possible shared bathroom with one other room. Shared kitchen which will be shared with paying guests. We have a large pool deck facing sunrise so perfect for morning yoga. You are able to use all spaces of the finca as long as you are respectful to other guests. We are 2 kms from the closest town.

    What else ...

    We are 2 kms from the closest town called Petra, which has a train and bus line. Winter is a great time to visit Mallorca with lots of different festivals celebrating grapes and olives. Keep in mind it is not summer and can be quite cold in winter, although this is definitely the best time to visit the beaches and enjoy paddle boarding etc.
