    What we currently need from a volunteer or a couple is the folowing

    1) Drive Maria with the baby and 5 year old Alen to the Escuela libre 20 minutes drive at 09:00 and help there with the school activities (planting garden and creating other permaculture aplications that the school needs)! This would be twice a week sometimes 3 times a week.
    2) Help with cooking at the house (we like to have dinner at 19:00-19:30 so we try to have everything prepared so we can cook easy and fast.
    3) Help with planting and creation of raised beds at our house
    4) Help with the production of Almond products Turron, almond creams, energy bars.
    5) General help in the house
    6) Help with the creation of art and play room ( decoration and baby proofing)
    7) Any ideas you may have about organizing the place better we will be very glad to hear from you
    8)

    What we offer
    1) A room in separate to the main house room, its a big space that we currently use as a kids play room
    2) Internet connexion from 07:00 to 23:00 (we always turn wifi off after that but you can connect with a cable)
    3) We will ofcourse share all our knowledge
    4) At least 3 meals a Day (we try to buy moslty organic healthy food)

    P.S
    We are preparing a cohousing permaculture project in a beautiful place with lots of trees and water near Alicante
    We could use some ideas and help with this process as well

    We prepare and sell delicious vegan foodstaf help us organise and participate in various workshops of natural building, fruit forest creation and mantainment... permaculture.
    We will try to start again some children´s activities and a Jamie Oliver type of restaurant once a week, Vegan Cookies and many more workshops so anyone with experience is more than welcome to share it.

    ABOUT US

    Im Giorgos, 36 years old I've always been a nature addict, we rented this house 8 months ago.
    Im an environmental engineer and I like experimenting to improve the way we use technology so as to enjoy a good quality of living.
    Im learnig to play the guitar and I love to sign, alone and even more with people...
    I enjoy cooking .. Usually I eat like a vegan but Im not.
    I really enjoy the beach. To sleep, relax, play voley football rackets anything.

    My 8 year old twins live with us half of the time and they really help with everything and with their new nut breaking abilities we always have a lot of fresh nuts. They love running around, playing with water in summer and jumping on the beds.

    We usually cook what´s in season every time rice pasta legumes grains and eggs. We don't eat anything with cow milk, so no cheese, yoghurt, butter, ... We cook vegan (plus eggs) but we arent :-)

    We make a lot of Vegan sweets and Paellas when the people like to help with the preparations.
    There is a posibility of playing football and beach voley near here on mondays and tuesdays sometimes thursdays and there is also ultimate frisbee on the beach on mondays and wednesday..
    And you can choose to come with me when I go on excursions but I ask for everyone to chip in for petrol money.
    Things you would like and things you wont like
    a) We eat 80 % organic more or less but we don´t buy bread , you will have to make it your selfs with our organic flour.
    b) The cooking is done by rotacion and it is NOt included in the 5 hours of work.
    c) We make asemblies to decide for almost anything and we try to always have consensus in everything.
    d) We agreed that no smoking around the house is a rule that we like, kids should not see smoking as a normal thing....


    See you. bring seeds and music and skills and love and tranquility and books .... and dreams and visions.

    We no longer cultivate for selling just for eating. We go to markets to sell what we produce in our Kitchen
    1) Mueslis
    2) Protein Bars
    3) Other delicacies

    I offer three meals and somewhere to sleep and all my knowledge, in return I need help in making this farm sustainable, 5 hours of work are necesIary.
    I try to make assemblies at least once a week so we can discuss what there is to do and how to do it.
    Also to give everyone the chance to express their opinion on how to coexist here in harmony and how to plan our week.
    I like permaculture : hugelkultur, creation of small ecosystems, a chicken tractor maybe etc.
