    Description

    Hi
    I am Manuel
    I am a calm and sociable person,
    I am trying to put this eco-project to work in a wonderful 12-hec farm, the farm had been abandoned for 20 years and it is hard work to get it working again, that is my dream, for now I already have 2 renovated houses, about 60 olive trees in production (the farm has about 400), some fruit trees and the land prepared to put the orchard
    I live alone with 2 dog and 2 cats and some hens .I speak Spanish and English, I have been traveling and working all over the world and now I am trying to put this eco project to work,
    I love the mountains and when I can I escape (at least once a week) to walk one of the innumerable routes that there are to do in the wonderful mountain range that we have next to us
    I need help with the housework, orchard, garden, trees, construction, ... everything about life on a farm
    The accommodation is in the farmhouse, which has already been refurbished, is still to be done mainly gardening, is very well located 5 minutes drive from the village of Lanjaron, 35 minutes from Granada and 30 minutes from Motril (beach)
