    Description

    We are a group of people restarting an agricultural project on a 2 hectares abandoned avocado finca close to Los Llanos/La Palma. The finca is on the way to the famous Caldera de taburiente - the volcano crater in a very beautiful and nature protected area.
    2 Hektars of terraced garden- we planted over 1200 trees, all fruits and have nearly 200 varieties. We have rabbits-chicken-peacocks-ducks and pheasants.

    Now we are preparing our visitors terrace including a big outdoor kitchen.

    FOR SUMMER we are searching for people who want to assist in courses with local children: bouldering, climbing, stand up paddling, swimming vegetable gardens, gardening, playing etc.
    We live in apartments nearby - with WIFI.

    We are located in Los Llanos- La Palma- Canary islands. We are replanting an abandoned avocado finca in the way of permaculture. So there is a lot of gardening work and some maintenance work and some help with construction - watering the trees-the vegetables, feeding the animals, help with building up irrigation, and construction of a camping site. FOR SUMMER we are searching for people helping with children, courses etc...any idea welcome.

    What else ...

    We are located close to town in a 15 minutes walk. Very good public transport on La Palma. We live nearby in apartments, Wifi. We do have aside from the permanents 3-4 volunteers helping us in all respects. Volunteers work daily on weekdays - usually between 8-14:00. We are very close to town so contact around is very good. We are now seeing the trees growing and wait for the next vegetables to come and the farm growing with landscaping and construction.
