  • Description


    Im wanting to make the garden and home into a working retreat, so help with the vegetable garden and making a lovely zen place and painting up the house is the main things, if someone is interested in woodwork that would be great as looking to make a wishing well, begoda etc
    Please Non Smokers
    A passion for gardening and cooking would also be a great advantage I am vegan so no meat is in the home,This will suit someone who is looking to get away from society as very quiet , I work during the day so apart from the lady who rents a room off me who is around most days as retired you will be on your own, so if you love having a challenge and working on your own inititive and like meditation, peace quiet and the country this is the place for you .Spanish speakers would be great as love to learn the language. Accomodation is lovely although basic a little attic room converted by some of my workaways,
    I provide for for 3 full meals a day, ( A lot of the time you will be preparing your own food and if at the right time of the year it will be organic and out of the garden, time spent preparing your food is not out of workaway hours as found a few volunteers taking a lot of time in food prep. ( Please bring your own snacks etc if you eat between meals) . Namaste Hils x

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As i am in a little village this would suit someone who wants to spend a lot of time amongst nature, peace and quiet and has a passion for gardening walking and cycling, I have two spare bicycles A bus runs from the bottom of the road until 5 pm at night and a very cheap taxi service is available . I’m also very open to volunteers spreading their twenty hours over 3-4 days so they can have whole days to go off and explore and get to know the area

    I have a beautiful home and garden not huge but also have a yurt which I put up in the garden in summer and want help so that it can be open for people to come and stay on a small retreat basis, I can offer a very warm home to volunteers and very good vegan food friendly atmosphere
