    Description

    Hello everybody!
    We are six people living here. We speak English and Spanish. I'm a Philologist so if you have any doubts on Spanish language I'll try to solve them.
    We share the kitchen tasks when there are no clients (cooking and washing up for the six of us and the volunteers). We don't prearrange a day or take turns following a chart. Whoever is free to cook by 13h, cooks. We agree it every morning. We've had some volunteers that enjoy cooking so they cook some days and wash up others. Some others prefer to wash the dishes or help with the cooking and setting. It's up to you. We do all these task with joy, so you choose whatever you prefer and we'll do the rest.
    When the clients (guests) come which is only during the weekend, the volunteers are free and we are in charge of the kitchen tasks and everything to do with the services to the clients. We don't like volunteers doing this type of job for which we hire people from the area if needed. Of course, you will have your meals ready but we might not be able to sit at the table with you since we are serving the guests.
    You will be sleeping in one of the hotel rooms. During the weekend you may need to move to a Caravan (only if the hotel is full).
    Martín will give you some tasks when you arrive and you're in charge of organizing your hours (5 a day- 5 days a week).
    Hoping to see you soon,
    Best wishes,
    Karen

    I hope you can organize your trip and come to visit us.
    The tasks you'll be doing are gardening, farming and construction. Depending on the month of the year, there's more task of one or the other. During the winter, we usually do construction and maintainance jobs (working with wood) and a bit of gardening. Spring is for the vegetable garden and gardening. Summer is a crazy time and a lot of people around here, we do everything. Autumn is the harvest season and we have kitchen work to do. The animals don't give us much work but it's all year long.
    Gardening means working with the hoe, spade and the wheelbarrow, moving stones, cleaning weeds, etc. Construction involves sanding and tinting boards, making adobe, building an organic house with recycled materials.
    You'll be helping 5h/day-weekends free, but you're free to help more if you want. We work 7-8 hours a day. Well, we don't see it as a job. We actually feel we are working only during the weekend when the guests come. During the week we just do things that need to be done.

    What else ...

    We have beautiful sorroundings and many things for you to see and many hikes around. You can just walk out of Sabinares and go for a nice walk by the river. Only 4 km from here we have a small and fairy tale like defile. Seven km away we have Covarrubias, a medieval town really well conserved and on the other direction, "Territoria Artlanza", built by a ceramist-sculptor, a place worth visiting.
    We always try to find the time to show you a bit around, go to Burgos and have some tapas.
