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 :)
