    Description

    Hi, thanks for your interest in my project :)
    I have been back to th Village for over a month and all is pretty much ship shape again, but I still need help with pruning, painting and other more creative projects on site.
    I am a 64-year-old English woman, settled in Morocco for over six years and have built a small eco village with the help of ⁶volunteers and local workers.
    The village is made up of 6 very different buildings made from principly with natural and recycled materials. I live with 2 dogs,3 cats, 7 chucks and 2 very messy ducks!
    I am not an expert in natural building, self-sufficiency or eco living, but I enjoy working cooperatively, as part of an enthusiastic team, planning, creating, experimenting, and learning together. It has been fun!

    Now, I am looking for 1 or two moderatly skilled and very hard working volunteers to help and share this unique and beautiful place:) i have a small house to offer which we are updating presently, also I will feed you very well!

    Unfortunately I am very short of resources due to covid , like a lot of others, so for the first time I am asking volunteers for a small donation to cover costs.(min 50dhm day) to cover costs. Workaway have sanctioned this temporary adjustment to my offer.

    I can assure you you will eat very well with lots of puddings and cake :)
    We enjoy a rural lifestyle and sometimes its hard work living here, but we are rewarded every day with tranquility , and amazing views . We enjoy excellent, mainly vegetarian food, but sorry we cannot cater for vegans or poeple with food allergies. We provide three wholesome meals a day, tea breaks and cake of course. Please feel free to bring extra food for snacks, as we do not live close to shops. We can also arrange local trips, play cards, have good conversation, film and pizza nights and enjoy rural tranquillity.
    Work is intense, physically hard, fun, and creative. Volunteers must be willing to work cooperatively, to cook, clean, feed the animals and all other aspects of communal living.
    Volunteers must stay for a minimum of 3 weeks but preferably a month, longer if they are amazing! We enjoy working and tend to work long hours to learn together and have fun. We are a popular project so it is a good idea to book well in advance.

    You will also need to bring 2 photocopies of your passport for the local bureaucracy and cheese! (Morocco is not a cheese nation!) We have a minimum stay of three weeks but in the unlikely event, either party is unhappy after the first week we will part company amicably!

    If you are not put off by this description and hard work then my project may be the place for you

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Volunteers will experience Northern Moroccan culture first hand, especially at the Suq (Local Market) every Monday. You will learn a lot, eat delicious food, and live with incredible views. Women volunteers can also accompany me to the local Hammam for a weekly wash!

    In your free time, you can explore a wealth of local attractions as we enjoy good transport links into Asilah and other nearby towns. It is truly beautiful here and you can hike/explore the amazing local countryside possibly walking to our local stone circle Mzoura. We also live 40 mins away from nearby clean Atlantic beaches.

    Hopefully, you can also learn to speak a smattering of Derija (Moroccan Arabic) and spend time in the local village Tnine Sidi Al Yamani, watching football with the locals, or visiting the Hammam (communal bathing house)

    Aide

    All volunteers help with day to day tasks; cooking, cleaning, animal care, shopping, maintenance etc. We live together as a family, all mucking in together!

    We welcome volunteer input and ideas and are open to volunteer led projects on site. We will be a small team of 2-4 who enjoy sharing the lifestyle and work and play

    I will send new volunteers an interactive map prior to their arrival. I can also arrange private hire pick up from Tanger airport - 300 dirham (30 Euros)

    The volunteer house is spacious, comfy and has amazing views. Sorry we do not have hot showers!

    Food is top quality, locally sourced, international, with lots of cake - well I am English!

    We are located in the countryside with limited transport, volunteers will need to get to our local village Sidi Al Yamini when they arrive. I will send an interactive map with transport details upon confirmation.

    Wi Fi is not available and volunteers will need to purchase a Moroccan sim card (30 dirham) + data

    Autres infos...

    Our project is based one mile from our local village where there is regular transport into Assilah and Larache. We are situated ten kilometres from beautiful beaches, an awesome stone circle, a Roman settlement and other places of high cultural and historic interest. There are interesting bird and wildlife, and amazing flora and fauna, we actually have wild tortoises on the land.

    We enjoy a relaxed lifestyle, love cooking and sharing food with guests. At weekends we sometimes arrange trips and chill out together, however, i do need a day a week off hosting, volunteers are asked to give me space one day week and spend that day off-site.:)

    All accepted volunteers must bring 2 photocopies of their passport, suitable work clothes, and house shoes for inside wear.
