  • Description


    Hello I'm half Spanish half American, I can also speak some German and a tiny bit of French(I'm glad to learn!). I'm open minded and I want to meet new people!

    I have a small piece of land, in which I do organic farming for self consumption mainly there is a stream flowing through it where you can bathe, there is a small solar system for electricity and there is no hot water unless we boil it when is cold (it never gets really cold here though).

    It is located a 5 minute walk from the village of Maro (where there is a pharmacy, a tobacco show and 2 small shops), a 5 minute walk from a small alternative beach, a 10 minute walk from a larger beach, and a 30 minute walk from the town of Nerja in Málaga, Spain.

    Smoking is welcomed.

    Not much else to say let's be friends first and then workers.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In this area there are many ecological farms with all kinds of people from many countries all with a sense of community and a beach where backpackers love to stop, even some caves that some off-the-grid people occupy. On the land you could learn about eco-farming and essential skills that you will need if you want to live a simpler life.

  • Help


    I'm looking for a bit of help, 2 hours a day is fine, more is welcomed with the garden and maybe with some other things related to the garden. No skills needed if you want to learn.

  • Accommodation


    I built a small wooden cabin where workaways can stay, there is
    a double bed perfect for a single or a couple. It has a second solar system (even smaller) for light and charging the phone. I will cook, I love cooking.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is beautiful beaches and mountains all around, the "caves of Nerja" (Google it!) are just 10 minutes walking away, the city of granada is about 2 hours on the bus 1 hour driving. Málaga is just an hour and a half away on the bus.
    If you like festivals well so do I, I will inform you if I know of any.
