    Description

    Hello!! we are Laura and Eric (mother and son of 8 years old), we live in CAVE-HOUSE in a small village in the middle of Granada Geopark, called El Margen (200 inhabitants) . We are looking for people to teach us English and to help us to finish the renovation of another cave and to regenerate the cultivated land.

    We live in a CAVE-HOUSE with three rooms and we are reforming one next door (with two rooms, kitchen-living room and a bathroom). We also have a plot of land of about 1000 m2, where we want to make a forest and a food forest.

    Cave dwellings are sustainable with a more or less stable temperature all year round... and our project consists of restoring the land and finishing the construction of the cave with sustainable materials.

    It´s a very special place with a very peculiar landscape with a semi-desert climate, but with a forest of native poplars and water springs.
