    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    You can learn something about permaculture, sustainability, vegan lifestyle, high raw vegan diet, yoga, mindfulness and nonviolent communication by Marshall Rosenberg during your visit.

    We live very off grid and minimalistic. Our electricity is 100% solar-powered and our water comes from a spring in the village.

    We started to live on our Farm in 2016 and since then, we are developing it from a mono cultural farm (mainly cherimoya and avocado trees) into a more diverse food forest. In the past two years our fruit trees struggled a lot due to extensive droughts. Our main focus now is to incorporate more fast-growing and nitrogen fixing trees (that help us to create shade) and establish more endemic fruit species.

    Since 2008 we eat vegan with plenty of whole foods and many fresh fruits. Several times we hosted a little retreat on our farm and all the participants, and we too ate only raw foods, and it was wonderful. We did yoga together, explored the beautiful beaches and mountains. So if you stay with us, we can give you good tips for the area and show you how to prepare simple but very delicious meals. :)

    We all eat a whole plant-based diet with many fresh fruits and veggies from region and buy seeds for sprouting from an organic whole seller. In Cherimoya season, we eat many Cherimoya and buy little other fruits. We try to eat two fruit meals a day and have a meal of steamed veggies or sprouts with a salad in the evening. Of course you're welcome to eat other whole plant-based foods during the day as you like. We usually don't cook during daytime, but you can do that if you'd like.

    Emma studied horticulture in Germany where she also worked in a tree nursery, for her bachelor thesis she made a design for a food forest. She likes to constantly improve and construct things around the house. In her little spare time as a full-time mother, she likes to take care of plants or create beautiful raw vegan cakes and sweets. Back in Germany she was singing in a choir, and she still enjoys singing from time to time.

    Michael works as an online teacher for German, as a portrait photographer and trainer for nonviolent communication by Marshall Rosenberg. He worked with over 300 people in seminars. If you are interested in learning more about nonviolent communication, just ask, and he will explain to you the basics. He is also a certified yoga teacher and likes to share his knowledge about mindfulness. In his spare time he likes to take care of the land, go for a swim, workout, practice some asanas, go for a hike (and take photos) or play the guitar.

    Frederik speaks German, Spanish and he started to learn English too. So you need to be at B1-level at least in one of these languages.

    He is a very easy-going nature that likes to construct things, and he is genuinely interested in all kinds of science.

    Household, preparing meals
    If you can give us a hand with keeping the space around the house clean and in order and helping prepare dinner (we eat very simple, whole food dishes) this would be nice.

  • Alojamiento


    During your stay (in a natural and beautiful cave or a tent or a tiny house if available) you can enjoy Cherimoyas (from October till March) and Avocados ripe from the trees. Cherimoya is one of the tastiest and healthiest fruits on earth :) We have very basic facilities, like an outdoor kitchen and a compost toilet and spend most of our time outside and hope you enjoy doing the same. But it is good to be prepared :)

    We only accept volunteers for a trial time of 1 week. If this time works for both sides, you are welcome to stay longer. Usually, we don't have a limit on how long you can stay with us. One volunteer stayed with us for 4 months and in the end decided to move to Spain

    We have only limited internet available through our phones. You can use the internet through a hotspot also on your devices after personal agreement. If you have mobile data (in Spain it's very cheap) you will have an excellent connection in our valley.

    We live plant based and would like the kitchen to be kept vegan, with as little processed (junk) food, as possible. As we have volunteers and sometimes guests all year long, you will share our community kitchen with them.

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    A calm bay is just a 3-min walk in distance.

    Nerja is the next bigger city and has many beautiful beaches and tourist activities. You can also go biking, climbing or hiking in the mountains or along beaches (we have 2 rubber boats available). We can provide detailed information on that and have some materials available.

    We have 2 cats living on our land.

    It is important for us that helpers talk about problems when they occur and we can find ways to solve them together.
    We like calm and peaceful people (only non smokers), that know how to work with kids and are flexible.

    We are looking forward to your message!

    We don't provide internet access, but we can tell you that we have a good internet connection (4G) with mobile data everywhere on the farm. During the colder months (november till march) it maybe a challenge once in a while to have enough electricity for charging laptops. If this happens, you can easily go to the library in Nerja or Café using one of our bikes.
