    Descripción

    We are a group of friends living in a small valley near Galicia, along the Saint James Way ( world-famous, 750-kilometre pilgrimage route also known as the Camino de Santiago) where we dedicate our life to nature and animals apart of three main projects: eco gardening, traditional and eco construction and a house open to pilgrims. We have a big vegetable and flower garden, horses and at the moment we are building a meditation and yoga room for those who want to practise them.We live in a pretty valley with a small river passing through. Our town has 20 inhabitants but is full of pilgrims and tourists during the summer months.
    We are compelled by maintaining an environment that brings together pilgrims, locals and volunteers.
    We form an awesome team and we are looking for people who love to be in nature and take care of our planet.
    We are vegetarians and we eat vegetarian food at home. Most of our food is organic and frequently comes from our garden.
    We have a limited internet access at home but there are bars where you can use wifi.

    Only contact us if you are full of energy, enthusiasm and enjoy helping out!
    Minimum stay of one month and at least 23 years old.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    I am dreaming of a world where people take care of nature and animals.
    We attempt to live as conscious as posible, taking our personal responsibility for our actions . Taking care of our personal energy to communicate needs and wishes! And on the other hand practice the art of listening. 
    We offer an international and rural experience at the same time. It is a great place to lean Spanish and to connect with the Spanish culture with the locals. It could be very helpful to be sociable and open.
    Although it is very rural, there are some local bars around and some folk and alternative festivals around here.

    There are lots of possibilities to integrate yourself in this project. Let me list up some ideas: help out in the garden, horse keeping, building a meditation and yoga room, painting, informing and assisting pilgrims, updating and maintenance of social media... We do some shifts in order that the type of work is changing and it doesn't become monotonous.
    We are looking for someone with initiative, who is motivated , responsible, flexible ( very important for us) and who enjoys learning.
    We frequently have friends and family around so volunteers have to be sociable and flexible.

    Alojamiento

    We provide 3 meals, home-made, healthy vegetarian food, in a peaceful village on the Camino de Santiago, which itself crosses Spain from East to West, attracting people from all over the world and from all ways of life.
    Some experience in cooking and doing dishes is required because we ask to everybody to collaborate in the preparation of our daily lunch in order to integrate volunteers in our community faster. Volunteers prepare their own breakfast and dinner using food from our well-stocked pantry. Lunch as I said before we prepare as a team by shifts and it's a good way to spend time together.
    Volunteers share a room with 2 bunk beds. Usually we have between 2 and 4 volunteers. The room is mixed for boys and girls. It's an old stone house in a valley so expect cold and fresh environment. We just turn on the heating in winter. Please bring just the necessary because the space it's limited. You should bring your sleeping bag ( better for winter no for summer) sheets, towels, boots and warm clothes.
    Our house has a beautiful view of the chestnuts valley that overlooks the river.
