  • Description


    Hi we are looking for help in sharing my vision of creating a natural healing retreat centre in the south of Spain. We are looking for creative, hardworking, respectful, thoughtful, intuitive, positive people that are willing to really muck in and add some of their own creative flair to the project. Dry Stone Wallers, Gardeners ( raised beds to be built and good soil to be made, plus planting veg, plants, flowers, trees), Plumbers, Solar electricians, Eco Builders, Musicians are welcome. You will work in a stress free environment. This is an exciting project and opportunity for any one to get involved in creating something incredible. I would prefer Non smokers, addiction free folk. There is no WIFI internet access. We eat mainly a vegetarian diet including our own produce. Any skills are welcome to be shared. Come and have fun :)

    What else ...

    There are plenty of great things to do in the area, there is a zip wire for the adventurous types which need to be booked at the local town hall . El Torcal is a beautiful nature reserve close by. Approx an hour away there are Hot springs at Alhama de Granada. For hikers there are many mountains to hike and there are also many rock climbing routes in the area. You may need to hire a car from Malaga to go out and about.

    There is one bus a day from the main road about 1.5km from the land, which will take you to and from the coastal area.

    In exchange for 5 hours a day work you will receive breakfast, lunch and dinner, beverages and accommodation.
