    HARVEST OLIVES 2021: WE NEED VOLUNTEERS FROM MID-OCTOBER TO MID-DECEMBER TO HARVEST AND MAKE OIL!

    WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS WHO WANT TO LIVE HERE FOR AT LEAST TWO MONTHS FROM OCTOBER TO APRIL, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO EXPERIENCE WITH DOGS AND SPEAK SPANISH!

    🐾🐾We are welcoming someone who wants to come and live in Spain with us from October to April to work in a shelter in exchange for room and board.🐾🐾
    We are a family of Italians living in Spain since 9 years and we have built a shelter for dogs on our farm year after year. Our main activity is to look after the dogs for this it is necessary that our guests have experience with dogs, preferably in kennels. In the morning we clean the shelter, feed the dogs and cuddle them or go to the veterinary,
    In addition to this great commitment, we also have 2 hectares of olive trees to cultivate completely organic and many small jobs to be done every day, such as replacing the walls of the farm, cutting grass, growing vegetables and others. The farm in which we live, like all the others here, has no electricity or water, this is our zero impact on the environment, we only use solar energy and rainwater, with some exceptions for the refuge area. We live very isolated, here there are no street names, you need to know the area to get your bearings and the roads are not easily accessible. We live about 15 km from the urban centers, in the middle of uncontaminated nature, in a still very rustic area and, therefore, we must adapt to the needs of the place, the comforts here are not at home. On the other hand we can enjoy a beautiful view of the L'Ebro Delta and the peace of a unique place.


    We speak Italian, Spanish and a little English.


    At home, the fundamental aspect is to love animals and respect them, we live around 24 hours surrounded by dogs of different sizes and character, so a guest must accept paws, kisses and hairs everywhere.
