  • Description

    Description

    I'm Jose, 28 years old and live in Los Sauces, on the beautiful island of La Palma. I have been working on my eco-project since 8 years building and gardening.
    I'm open-minded, easy-going and I like experimenting.
    I live in the project, which is a big garden with bananas, avocados, mangos, papayas, pineapples, etc. I grow my own vegetables and have some animals: chickens and a goat.
    I'm looking for someone to help me with eco-constructions. We use a mixture of mud, water and fiber to build a little house.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    As the project is a work in progress, I can only offer a tent as accommodation. Luckily, as I live on La Palma with its sub-tropical climate, it's perfect for camping. Also, I don't have electricity, nor wifi.
    The city center is very nearby: only half a kilometer.
    Also we have a beautiful view over the ocean and the mountains from the project.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    La Palma is a beautiful island, very well known for it's well established hiking trails and beautiful viewpoints over the mountains and the ocean.
    The project is very close to the city center, only 2 minutes walking. There is a bus station where you can take a bus to the capital city, Santa Cruz (40 min). The beach and the natural swimming pools (Charco azul) are a 30 min walk from the project.
