I'm an ex-EU translator 59 years old Danish setting up a small organic farm in mountains outside Malaga (25k direct bus). I need help with putting 60 abandoned avocado and orange trees into shape again, planting new olive and fruit trees, setting up a big kitchen garden. I have a gardener but help needed, also with construction work like building stables and transforming garden shed into guesthouse. In May 2018 especially looking for somebody who can do welding.

Producing organic fruit and vegetables in tentative self-sufficiency. We are not vegetarians though. I can help with learning Spanish language culture and history.
I am used to having young people around and used to share my former big house with EU trainees. Still friends with most of them. They come visit also which explains need for caravaning or camping in season !! I can help you if you want to learn or improve your Spanish. We have horses, dogs, cats and chickens and having the space we also from time to time foster big abandoned dogs, a real problem in rural Spain due to crisis. We make them ready for adoption to good homes in Holland and Belgium. You must like animals.
Winter: guest room inside house either double or single (couples are welcome). In summer: caravan or tent (due to many friends and family visiting).
Internet is not limited in volume, and is quick inside house. In the caravan Internet is mobile, so signal because of the mountain often not very strong but enough for daily emailing Facebook etc. Smoking is allowed outside.
We have local bus to village in one direction (3k) and to downtown Malaga in the other direction (25k). In village bus connection to Fuengirola.
