  • Description


    We are a german couple, Karsten & Christina, living on an organic farm on El Hierro, Canary Islands. We have fruit trees of all kinds and some animals (dog, cats, rabbits, chicken and ducks). Karsten is a Freediving Instructor, Christina a Personal Coach, journalist and eco farmer. The finca is isolated in wild nature 200m above sea-level, close to the seaside and cliffs. The next beaches (Charco Manso, Tamaduste) are in 45 minutes walking distance (some minutes by car). We live off grid with 100% solar power and reuse our water, trying to live as sustainable as possible. At the moment we can offer a stay in a tent. We need help to build the infrastructure for the outdoor life of the workaway community.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You can learn about organic farming, ecological lifestyle, get a lot of inspiration of how to life a simple and joyful life close to nature. We both work a lot in personal development and are also happy to give some impulses. Between April and October, our place is a paradise for ornithologists. The close by lava caves are home and breeding place for "pardelas" (petrels). You have a 200 degrees seaview, with sunset and sundown, an incredible clear sky with stars.

  • Aide


    We need help on our farm, mainly to build wooden structures (compost toilet, storage space, outdoor chill-out zones etc), do water installations (ponds, maintenance and optimisation of irrigation system for trees) and prepare land & plant in parts of our land which need to be terraced. There is a lot of tasks to do, step by step. If you are able to build stonewalls with natural lava stones or if you have excellent carpenter skills we would be extremely delighted.

    Our animals need animal loving hands. Chicken, ducks, cats, rabbits, dog.

    More and more help in gardening, planting and embellishment is required. Also building and maintaining pathways and patches.

    Help in the house welcome .

    The birdsong of pardelas (petrels) is fascinating and funny at the same time. Their nesting season is between April and October. Listening their "concert" is happening specially in dark of the night . The next village with public transportation is about 1,5 kilometers away. The next beaches where you can swim (Charco Manso / Tamaduste) are in 45 minutes reach. Its a beautiful scenic walk. Of course it is just some minutes by car. El Hierro´s peace and tranquility attracts nature lovers. There is no elaborate touristic infrastructure and no nightlife as you would expect it in other places on the Canaries. Still there are plenty of street festivals and parties. Especially in summer. Karsten offers freediving courses - if you are interested in prices & courses search for "Freediving El Hierro". There are special offers for our workawayers. Other outdoor activities can be walking, hiking, paragliding, swimming, scuba-diving, snorkeling, mountain biking and many more.

    Espace pour garer des vans

    Smaller campervans can stay on our land. Bigger ones need to stay a little further (300m) uphill because they might not make it down and up the pathway.
