    Descripción

    We are a Spanish (Paola) and Dutch(Andreas) couple creating a permaculture setup restoring an old house in the coastal mountains of Asturias. (Roughtly midway between the towns of Mones and Ballota). My name is Andreas, my partner is Paola, an artist. I moved permanently to Spain end 2014 after working on and off on the project for two years. The village I live in is more or less deserted and very beautifull. we are totaly off grid and the permaculture venture is in its 4th year going for 5 year. I have built a little temporary wooden cabin (tiny house) and there is a separate cabin shared by volunteers and the odd pilgrim on the route to Santiago. We have a wood heated hot shower and even a suana! So living is more or less comfortable, even in winter.

    At the moment we have dogs and cats, my plan is to start with animals at some point in the future.

    The work on the main house is typical construction stuff. I use a lot of natural materials from the environment, recycled material and sometimes new stuff. It is a good opportunity to learn about building stone walls, woodwork, working with machines, electricity, solar power, etc etc. If you are a specialist maybe I can learn from you :)

    The farming effort focus on fruit trees, berries, a vegatable garden in three parts, shitake mushroom cultivation and bees.

    I speak English, Dutch, Afrikaans :), and crooked Spanish (getting better all the time I hope). Paola is Spanish. Work is hard when we work but there is enough time to relax, explore the environment and do other stuff. (5 hours x 5 days is the guideline).

    If the click is good longer term volunteering is possible. We are looking for people who want to volunteer for a longer term (3 to 9 months), especially if you have the idea to start your own place.
