    Description

    Some years ago I quited my job in the city, and moved to a tiny village to become an organic farmer.
    Together with my girlfriend Lina, we try to be as self-sufficient as we can and we offer here a space where people can learn about "volunteer simplicity", organic farming or how to live more conscious.
    I´ve used couchsurfing and workaway a lot, both, hosting and been hosted.

    Since I started to host people through workaway, I can say it´s amazing!
    We live in an old building that we restored.
    Hosting people makes me feel like if I´m travelling, so I can mix my two passions: travelling and organic farming :)

    IMPORTANT NOTICE: Since we live in an area with fresh and clean air, I'm not able to host smokers.

    You can help restoring an old building using old techniques, buiding walls to prevent erosion, and also help with the organic farm or cooking.
    The plan is to host at same time around 3 or 5 volunteers...but sometimes we are 10 in total!

    It is time to prepare the olive trees for the harvest, picking firewood, cooking fresh veggies...and a lot more of things to do!

    If you like fresh organic food, this is your place!

    The area where the farm is located is having less and less inhabitants, so people who would like to find a place closer to the nature where to live, and to make their own projects become true, and share ideas and good moments with like-minded people are welcome to have a look!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is a place to learn about "deep Spain" culture, and also where to learn about organic farming, eco friendly ways of building, or where just to spend a nice time playing cards :)

    The volunteers can help with the farm (I plant a lot of different vegetables), or cooking, or wichever task we could have..
    In my opinion, volunteers are volunteers, not slaves, so don´t worry! You can choose what you prefer to do.
    I´m also a volunteer on workaway, and I enjoy a lot to travel in this way!

    If you are interested in visiting the farm, I would rather prefer long stays, like 2-3 months, but if this is too much time, don´t worry, you can stay a shorter time!

    Accommodation

    We are living in the old building that we fixed.
    We don´t have electricity, but sometimes we go to my parents house to charge all the electronic devices. Not having electricity is a personal choice, and I find very nice to live with the rythm of the sun :)
    We have beds, blankets and everything you can need...so far volunteers didn´t have any problem!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Letur, the village where is the farm, is a very beautiful place, surrounded by rivers and mountains, and it could be called "deep Spain" :)
    To arrive here can be a bit hard using public transport, there is only one bus coming everyday from Albacete to Letur at 15:00 (this bus is not available on weekends)
