Hi. My husband and I are yoga teacher trainers and healers. We have a permaculture project on 11 hectars of land that we bought. Between the pandemic and a very serious case of covid we have not been able to work on the land project. We need help to restore all the damage that the Filomena storm did. We need to rebuild a gazebo, the dining area and clean up the place. It is in nature at 1000m above sea level. There is no cell coverage because it is completely wild. We have a stream that runs through the land and a superadobe dome. It is 1 hour away from Madrid city and half an hour away from Guadalajara city in Spain. We speak Spanish and English, we are vegetarians so the food we would serve here is vegetarian or vegan. There is lots of hiking to do here, castles, yoga, meditation. You would be staying in our house which is 1km from the land project. Our house is in a little village made up of stone houses and populated by 20 persons in total! So there is lots of silence, lots of nature. We have a cat so if you are allergic this might not be the best place for you. We have internet connection, but no cell phone connection in the house. You would have your own room.

UN sustainability goals this host is trying to achieve
Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
We speak Spanish and English so we can teach you both. Learn the history of Spain, see the castles, art, permaculture. Learn about nature healing herbs. Learn yoga, meditation, healing.. We can have a bicycle available so you can explore the area.
We need a strong couple that can work with tools or learn how to work with tools, we will teach you. A handyman would be very welcome. We need help in the permaculture garden and organizing the backyard. You will be working in the morning or in the evening 4-5 hours. On some days we can take you sightseeing through the surrounding areas.
This host offers a language exchange
Any other language other than English or Spanish would be welcome.
You would have a room for yourself in our house, eat vegetarian food. There is no cell phone coverage in the house, but we do have internet and you can have cell phone coverage walking to the outskirts of the village. We have a cat so if you are allergic to cats this not the place for you. I will make the meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner. There will be fruit and snacks.
What else ...
Since we live in a remote village, the only way to get here is with a car. So if you don't have a car and are coming on an airplane you would arrive to the nearest airport which is Madrid. We would pick you up from the airport. If you come by train it would be the same. If you come from Spain you could take a train to Guadalajara and we would pick you up from the train station. Once here we will transport you to and from the land project. We will have a bicycle ready for you so you can go into the nearest town at 5km away. There are buses from the local town that can take you into Madrid or Guadalajara. If you want to go the Barcelona we can take you to the fast train half an hour away from here. Madrid is the center of Spain from which you can reach all parts of Spain.
