  • Description


    This is a farm in the south of Spain; in Coin, Malaga. It has been productive for the last 40 years and at the moment we produce about 3000k of avocados a year as well as a significant cuantity of mangos, citrus fruits, chirimoya, lichi etc... For 15 years it was maintained by a yogi along with two other farms. Ten years ago I (Seth) joined in and in this time a lovely confidence has grown between us. We are Rosa, Seth and our son Sethi (12 years old) and daughter Leona ( 3years old ). We are taking the farm towards a fully productive permaculture food forest with hundreds of new medicinal and edible plants and assemblies. The over-all goal of the farm is to evolve a healthy space, sustainable and productive. For this we abstain from all of the normal vices (meat, alcohol, tobaco, etc...). Our purpose is to organise a team to maintain the farm, fill the nursury with plants, make workshops and courses, and address, as a general goal, the reforestation of local urban and mountainous spaces. Our goal is reforestation, starting with the health of the individual.

    At the moment we are filling the gardens, harvesting, mapping and measuring the farm and its new annex to improve our design.

    There will be a lot of gardening, chipping, wormcompost, plant nursery, implementation of permaculture, build with cob and palets...child care always jaja :)

    We would like to take on help for a season at a time. This will put less stress on the organization and offers a full educational experience for workawayers who are looking to learn new agriculture and permaculture. Of course this is not always possible so we do accept workers for less time, a month at least. We do however insist that those that enquire have a sincere desire to learn and live in the country, to experiment with permaculture and further their experience with healthy lifestyle.

    The garden needs attention, this means weeding and planting , also the multiplication of interesting species. It is a permaculture garden so some explication is needed and open-mindedness. Then the construction of a permaculture instalation team/community!

    This climate permits living out-doors and if you like there is plenty of space under the avocado trees to put a tent or sleep in the open-air. We offer also what we used to call "Chambao" is roof and floor and moskito net, with a little shelf in the side. This structure has a normal mattress and you sleep comfortably under avocado trees. It's nice!
    Now in the cold season there in south Spain the ideal is that you travel with van and sleep in your van , or be relient person and sleep in tent or chambao how we explain just before
