  • Descripción


    We are a newly retired English couple who want to live a more sustainable, close to nature, eco lifestyle. We have a beautiful old Andalusian farm house on the outskirts of Orgiva but within walking distance of town. We have been renovating the house for the last 3 years and have just installed a solar hot water system. We have less than one acre of land with 40 olive trees and a variety of other fruit and nut trees. We also have a large vegetable patch and wild flower area; a wildlife pond, swimming pool, and several terraces. We try to maintain the land organically, using permaculture principles and garden in line with the moon cycles.

    Over the next few months, we are also looking especially for someone to help look after and entertain our 20 month old grandson for an hour or so each day to allow our daughter, who has just had another baby, to have a bit of rest. Please see our Child Protection Guidelines.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Orgiva is an alternative, multi-cultural community located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains (the Alpujarras).
    We enjoy meeting new people, sharing and learning for mutual benefit. By staying here, we hope you will learn together with us more about permaculture principles and how to live off-grid.

    Help with Eco Projects

  • Alojamiento


    We have a double room and a twin room.
    We would provide your food on your work days and in addition to your 4 hours work on the land, we ask that you get involved in all mealtime preparations. We either all cook together or take turns, and all share the cleaning up.
    But on your days off we ask that you provide your own food for your main meals. You are welcome to use the facilities and cook for yourself, or enjoy days out!
    Please note this could also be time off for us and we like to eat out sometimes.

    We have a patch of land, where you can park a large campervan, which is next to the vegetable garden and wildlife pond. You would have use of an outdoor kitchen, compost toilet, shower, washing machine, electricity for charging phones etc, swimming pool (when in season), food from the garden when available and a plot to grow your own vegetables (for longer term workawayers). This would be in exchange for 2 hours work a day per person, 5 days a week.
