  • Description

    Description

    Due to the coronavirus outbreak in Spain, we are not accepting many volunteers but only during October and subject to dates confirmation, to avoid peoplés movement and contagion.
    So if you are interested in coming here, send us a message.
    Be safe.

    We are a British couple living in southern Spain, near Alhama de Granada. We enjoy the outdoor activities and are developing a garden for pollinators for our bees to thrive. We are looking for people to help us with planting, clearing weeds in some areas, a little of building and enjoy the environmental activities. In April we do lots of planting and in October we´ll include harvesting olives in our schedule and planting the garden for pollinators, in Spring we´ll plant wild flowers and work with the bee hives.

    Our nearest town, Alhama de Granada, has lots of history and you can enjoy traditional town life. It is just beautiful.

    We are part of an environmental activities group and there will be the opportunity to meet other similar minded people.

    We attend yoga and taichi on weekday evenings, covid restrixctions permiting so you are welcome to join us or to stay in town for a drink and a tapa whilst we attend our practice.

    We live in the countryside with two dogs, two cats, lots of birds, bee hives and the wildlife around us is thriving.

    We can offer you an ensuite bedroom, vegetarian/vegan meals and a place to relax and recharge your batteries.

    We would expect workaway open minded people to apply. Non smokers and people happy to do gardening, building and physical work. We garden organic so no chemicals are used on the land and the work of managing the weeds is intensive.

    There is always healthy drinks and food at the table, plenty of fruits and cereal bars to keep you going and three lovingly cooked vegetarian/vegan meals every day.

    We prefer to host couples as it could be lonely when you are on your own.

    So there you have it, if you like it, get in touch.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We´ll invite them to take the cultural tour of the town of Alhama, the roman villa of Salar and we can visit some other local cultural attractions. Before departure, they will be treated to a visit to the hammam (arab baths spa) to ensure they return home fully relaxed, suntanned and happy to have visited. I speak fluent Spanish and I am happy to help people practice their language skills.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The beach is only one hour away and buses run in the morning and evening so there is time to spend a day in Torre del Mar. The city of Granada with its magnificent Alhambra monument, the most visited monument of Spain is only 45 min away. or 1 hour by bus. If helpers bring their international driving licence, they can have the use of a car for their time off to explore the surrounding area. Our insurance request this document to insure them at no extra charge to them.
    We re in an isolated location, therefore a car is required, even if we are only 15 min away from the town with all its facilities.
    There are opportunities to participate in local activities and fiestas, depending on dates.

    Beware. due to the pandemic, events may change and restrictions apply which are outside our control.
