  • Description


    We live on a permaculture homestead on 3 hectares, a 10 min walk to the centre of Medina Sidonia, a small rural town in Cádiz, Andalucía.

    Slowly we will extend existing mature fruit orchard into a mediteranean woodland garden.

    I hope that people who come here learn how to live more gently on our beautiful planet and with a lot less stuff and a lot less waste.

    We are a bilingual English/Spanish family that believes that all religions are equal and to be respected. However, we are not ideal for learning Spanish as we speak Spanglish often?

    I work full time as a teacher during the week so you need to be a very proactive, independent problem-solver! I require a minimum 4 week stay.

    My 16 year old daughter lives with me and the other 3 children are working, studying or exploring.

    It is hard physical work here generally walking up and down on a slope constantly. You need to get a kick out of physical labour and enjoy the tired sensation of a job well done.

    Throwing food in the bin hurts my soul.... and I try to eat from the vegetable patch so it doesn't go into the Compost bin.... slightly less soul damage!
    We eat meat once a week but happy to adjust to other different requirements so long as complicated cooking is lead by those in need. We support La Almaciga (Medina) and the Red Agroecologico de Cadiz.

    Smokers - I have recently discovered how sensitive my body is to tobacco it makes me feel very ill. So any smoking needs to be far away from communal areas and from me!

    We share our space with a donkey, dog and 3 cats.

    Looking forward to interviewing you for our project!

    At this stage, anyone planning to set up something similar will see the difficulty with priorities and how everything needs to be done first!

    I do not profess to have a lot of accumulated experience to teach others especially as I am hardly there but it is an opportunity to learn from what I can guide you on and to do you own research library and build your observation skills.

    Autres infos...

    Bus services from Medina Sidonia are almost null. More to Chiclana and Cadiz than to Jereza day to either Cadiz and Jerez. However a traveller with a car is 30 mins away from Jerez, Chiclana, Vejer, 45 minutes away from Cadiz and 1 hour away from Tarifa.

    The nearest supermarket is 10 minutes away and the town has some shops, banks, cafés and bars! This is a town that has been inhabited for 3000 years Phonecians, Romans, Muslims, French invaders! The oldest Visigoth church in Andalucia (600 AD) is 1km below us and the area is culturally, historically and archaeologically rich!
