  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You would get to know the cultural life in Granada, and insider tips for outings, flamenco etc. We have many open artist friends who you would also eventually y meet. I play myself in the symphony orchestra, David is a jazz musician, Rayen studys percussion at conservatory an Muri is at university studying social educaction, and working as a sport teacher. You could come with us to concerts and events if you are staying during the season. We are flexible on your working time, ideally adapting to each other. In summertime though, it is necessary to work early in the morning.

    We would like that people coming to stay with us feel comfortable and participate in the organisation of the work they will do. This year David had a foot broken so he can not be as active as usual. Eventually we will want to travel around for a few days. In that case, we will need someone to take care of our house when we are not in. If David stays on his own, we will need help to attend the pool, water the garden, feed and take the dogs out: this sort of duties he is not managing to do yet, due to mobility difficulties.
    We believe that another world is possible, away from money and consumerists values.
    Our house is a little organic cottage, very improvised and very green, for andalusian average. We are 10 kms away from the city center, well connected by bus.
    The place where guests stay, is independant from the family .

    We think that the volunteer profile should be in the direction of: animal loving, handy and practical, flexible, good eyes for plants/garden, with experience taking care of spaces like ours, in summertime specially, it is better to be an "early bird" because that is the best time for better results in garden and pool, and also for personal comfort.

    I am good at healthy cooking, can adapt easily to diet requirements. If I am not in, cooking will be a spontaneously shared work.
    Working time is not long but constant, otherwise the pool will become green and the plants will dry up
    A little walk every day with doggies will make them happy.
    If you are a natural early morning person, in 2/3 hours you would be ready with work if everything needs being done. For maintaining, 1,5 hours should be OK.
