    HELP US BUILD A HOUSE WITH NATURAL MATERIALS (stone, clay, wood...)

    Important: The work we are developing is hard, so we are looking for active and hardworking people. Now we need help related to: Woodworking, Roofing, eco-construction

    The minimum stay is 15 days.

    We are a young couple and a baby who are creating a small organic farm. At the moment we are focused on the reconstruction of a house, following traditional techniques and using natural materials, therefore, most of the tasks that you must realize as a volunteer will be related to the construction. During the spring and summer we also have work in the family kitchen garden.
    Our activities are developed in a abandoned village located 8 km from Enguídanos, where we want to establish ourselves when we finish building our house. This village, where you will work as a volunteer is in the middle of nowhere and surrounded by nature.
    The work we are developing is hard, so we are looking for active and hardworking people.


    How do we organize the work??
    The activity takes place in a village located 8 km from the town of Enguídanos. As a volunteer you will work 25 hours a week distributed over 4 or 5 days. Volunteers will stay with the hosts, in the same house. The house is not finished, so the accommodation at the moment is a bit precarious, but it will cover your basic needs: bed, compost toilet, cold shower (although we can heat water) and small living room with wood stove. In addition to work, volunteers have to collaborate in household chores.
