  • Description

    Description

    We are a community of three families (german/austrian) living together on the east coast of Spain.
    We are in the process of building a place for family gatherings so we need help with building and maintenance of different areas for outdoor activities.

    At the moment we are five adults and six children which are homeschoolers, in a big house and garden. There are also two dogs and a cat and four chicken.
    The house is 3 km from the sea and about 200 meters from the beautiful mountain Montgó which is also a Nature Park. You can reach the center of the town within 10 minutes by bike.

    We are friendly, openminded and like to connect with new people. We would love to learn Spanish, so we invite especially people with Spanish skills to be with us. Nevertheless it will be necessary to communicate in either English or German since we all don't speak much Spanish yet.

    We can offer you a single room in the house, as well as fresh cooked, mostly organic vegetarian food.

    The help will be 5 hours a day. According to your skills we need help with gardening, building shelters, renovating a caravan, cooking, doing the dishes (no dishwasher!) and connecting with the kids (aged 4 to 9 yrs).

    Driving licence is appreciated but not obligatory.

    As we are a lot of people here, an outgoing personality is favourable. We are looking forward to spend time together and learn from each other.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have been travelling ourselves and one family has experience in being workawayers. You can learn about online business, homeschooling and travelling with kids as well as german language and culture. We can offer a different view on many topics regarding the usual way of living. We love open and nonviolent communication and conflict management. Of course you can also get in touch with spanish culture.

    We have an old caravan that need a bit of renovation, so if you are skilled in diy it would be good. Furthermore there is housework like sweeping the court, helping in the garden, kitchen work, being with the kids and teaching us the spanish language.
