    NOTICE: We are welcoming workaways for up to 2 weeks in June 2024 and again in October. Work is the morning, Couples or travel buddies preferred. This time there is a lot of stone moving and wall building. Strong physical condition preferred.

    We prefer to host couples or travel buddies as it could be lonely when you are on your own. We are closed from 1 November to 1 April each year.

    We are a British couple living in southern Spain, near Alhama de Granada. We enjoy the outdoor activities and are developing a garden for pollinators for our bees to thrive. We are looking for people to help us with planting, clearing weeds in some areas, a little of building and enjoy the environmental activities. In April and May we do lots of planting and in October we´ll include harvesting olives in our schedule and planting the garden for pollinators, in Spring we´ll plant wild flowers and work with the bee hives.

    Ideally volunteers should have building knowledge and strong physical disposition. Work is during the mornings.

    Our nearest town, Alhama de Granada, has lots of history and you can enjoy traditional town life. It is just beautiful.

    We are part of an environmental activities group and there will be the opportunity to meet other similar minded people.

    We live in the countryside with two dogs, one cat, lots of birds, bee hives and the wildlife around us is thriving.

    We can offer you an ensuite bedroom, vegetarian/vegan meals and a place to relax and recharge your batteries.

    We would expect workaway open minded people to apply. Non smokers and people happy to do gardening, building and physical work. We garden organic so no chemicals are used on the land and the work of managing the weeds is intensive.

    There is always healthy drinks and food at the table, plenty of fruits and cereal bars to keep you going and three lovingly cooked vegetarian/vegan meals every day.

    Volunteers must be NON smokers, and be aware that we are a drug free environment, no exceptions. Volunteers must be happy to work the great outdoors in an isolated location.

    So there you have it, if you like it, get in touch.

    We´ll invite them to take the cultural tour of the town of Alhama or the roman villa of Salar when available and we can visit some other local cultural attractions. Before departure, wworkaways could be treated to a visit to the thermal baths (arab baths) to ensure they return home fully relaxed, suntanned and happy to have visited. I speak fluent Spanish and I am happy to help people practice their language skills.

    Our internet connection is good for checking emails, not for streaming or live broadcast as we only have 5 megas and network for telephone calls coverage not so good due to our remote location.
