I am German but have been living in Spain since 1997. My daughter was born here in 2002. I am a single mother doing various jobs, and there is never enough time for everything.
I love animals and have several cats (they come and go as they like) and 3 dogs. Especially the dogs need a lot of attention and I would appreciate a helping hand.
I am very much interested in health and nutrition (I work half-time in a herbal shop) and love to try out new vegetarian and vegan recipes.
My big wish is to found (or participate in) a community which can live independently in as many aspects as possible (own fruit and vegetables, free energy, own water supply, etc.). Recently we have started a project together with a group of friends at a wonderful place (in Pedreguer, Costa Blanca) where we grow our own vegetables and also have chickens for eggs. I also help some other friends with their fruit and vegetable growing, in exchange for fruits and vegetables. :-)
I live in a small town with about 40,000 inhabitants on the Costa Blanca. It is a tourist region and in the summer there are 4 times as many people here. It is a really beautiful strip of land, with beaches and mountains and lots of things to do.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
I would be more than happy to show the volunteer around and introduce her/him to all my friends.
I would prefer to have a native English speaker, non-smoker, with driver's licence. But everything is discussable. I have had people from a lot of different countries so far, and it has always been a great experience. The driver's licence is really not so important, everything can be reached by bicycle.

There are a lot of different things to do. The most important thing for me is that my daughter speaks English. She is bilingual and fluent in German and Spanish. She has learnt a lot of English with the volunteers I have had already with workaway but I know that it is important to speak it frequently in order to keep up her level or even improve. Then there is some housework to do, like cooking, washing, cleaning, etc. I do what I can myself but there is never enough time... And now that we have three dogs I would also appreciate some help with them, taking them for a walk, etc.
For an interested person, there is a lot to learn and to do. I am open and flexible with everything.
