    Description

    This is the home of Akasha. I am an artist originally from Holland .The plan is to transform the land and building into workshop space and a space for people to relax and be creative in nature. Akasha and her ex partner built 2 beautiful cob 623012726, and a pallet house but there is still so much work to be done . I am in Alozaina in the region of Malaga. I am around 3km from the village where you will find bars shops, banks, medical centre etc. In your spare time there is so much to see and do, we are an hr from the coast, and an hr from Malaga and Ronda and not far from the famous Camino Del Rey and the lakes .
    I welcome workers/helpers preferable couples who love being in nature and have an interest in eco and sustainable living. I am off grid on dry land rain water only so awareness about water use is essential. We looking for couples with DIY skills that can help transform a dry wall stone house into a 2 bed space. I expect 4 hrs help a day from helpers. I also offer a free stay for artist to have a holiday and paint one of the many water containers. I provide the paint of course.
    I offer accommodation in the pallet house . When the strawbale house is empty than that can be used as well. I have an outdoor kitchen, compost toilet ,outdoor bucket shower and a shower with black tubing to heat the water. I will provide you with a box of vegetarian ingredients to cook for yourselves . I speak Dutch German English and Spanish. As part of the bigger picture I encourage any helpers who are artistic to maybe make a piece of art to leave on the land.
    Looking forward meeting you.
    Namaste Akasha
