    This is a farm where I grow vegetables and fruit. Help is needed for weeding, planting, digging, pruning, watering, harvesting, seeding and caring. I expect motivated people who have respect for nature. In July and August it is extremely hot, so working very early or very late. !!! AS REQUIRED BY WORKAWAY-POLICIES, NO HELPING FOR ANY BUSINESS-PURPOSES, ONLY VOLUNTEERING FOR GARDENING !!!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    My place is an old grain-mill, with lots of fruit trees, vegetables and 10 cats. It has a big water deposit that is used as a pool in the summer. Work depends on the season. The house is in a valley so the land is organized in terraces. Work consists of weeding, pruning, painting, fruit picking. The vegetable garden is expanding. I expect people motivated to work outside with their hands and their heads. You can learn a lot at my place, doing and being! Mostly people stay around 2 or 3 weeks. For people who want to stay longer in the area, there are many others in the neighbourhood offering. A hippie-village Beneficio is close by, no drugs, no dogs allowed on my farm. Orgiva is one of the most cosmopolitan villages in Andalucia, Spain, half the population is foreign, lot's of alternative living. For more questions and answers, don't hesitate to ask. I speak dutch, french, english, spanish and a little german. !!!!!!!!!!!! AS REQUIRED BY WORKAWAY-POLICIES, NO HELPING FOR ANY BUSINESS-PURPOSES, ONLY VOLUNTEERING FOR GARDENING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
