  • Description


    Hiya! My name is Mercedes and I work in a wonderful small Montessori school in Southeastern Spain. Set in a stunning 6000 sqrmt garden with species from all over the World, we are in need of help! Taking care of plants, maintenance and cleaning, we want to develop other school projects as well, like the ecologic orchard for School use, using bats to fight mosquitos, building and refurbishing, different camps and events for both children and adults... in all this works we would like to engage children so they can learn and feel proud.

  • Help


    Garden and maintenance, cleaning, some simple building works and painting, developing some projects as orchard, café, camp, eventual collaboration with teachers to engage children in work, but you will never be required to teach as a volunteer.

    We cannot offer pocket money now but in the future, as different projects develop (café, shop, etc) if profitable there can be a prudent salary for runners.
