    People who are gonna work here can benefit in several ways. I can teach all kind of things in construction, dry stone walling and some things in gardening. Also I can teach meditation.

    Órgiva is a multi cultural place. It is situated in the mountains of the "Sierra Nevada" and it is surrounded by nature. The coast (beaches) are a half our driving and the beautiful city Granada about 40 minutes.

    Living in the countryside and a lot need to be done in the garden and house. Maintenance in a vegetable organic garden. There is always work in the garden, pruning, planting, you name it.
    Sometimes i have also a small building jobs to do. Like to build a compost toilet and outside shower behind the caravan.
    What also is important that you can work independent because there are days that I am not at home during daytime.

    A couple is very welcome to stay and help. But if you want to come alone, you´re also very welcome. I live about 10 minutes walking from Orgiva town. On thursday is the local market, what is a very "colourful" market because in Orgiva we have about 70 different nationalities. By car it is about 30 minutes to the beach. Orgiva is in the lower mountains of the Sierra Nevada, very beautiful nature. Also there is a buddist centre ( O Sel Ling, ) in the higher mountains, what is an amazing place to visit as well.
