  • Description

    Description

    We are a British couple living outside the village of Torrox, 45 minutes from Malaga. We are committed to growing and eating organically and starting to develop permaculture. We keep chickens and have 2 dogs and 19 cats. Mainly we cook vegetarian food that we grow. WE are interested in sustainable projects on our farm and around the house. We have a fantastic climate all year round and we are only 4 k from the beach. and 10 minutes walk from the village.
    WE have wifi in the house. Workawayers work during the week and have the weekend free. Plenty to see in the area and the village is 10minutes walk away

    WE are looking for like minded people with some relevant gardening experience. Volunteers should be responsible and able to work independently. WE have 400 square metres under vegetable cultivation so there is always plenty of work to do on the land. WE ask volunteers to help 5 days, 5 hours and all food is provided. Additional help with cooking and cleaning is expected.

    This region of Andalucia is very beautiful and suited to people who like walking and countryside. There is also beach, local swimming pool and the typical Moorish village of Torrox nearby. Malaga is easily accessible with its interesting history and Granada is also accessible in a day. Slightly further afield are Ronda, Cordoba and Sevilla. There is scuba diving about 30 minutes away, kite sufing and kayaking. Nearest town of interest is Nerja with its lovely beaches and nightlife
