  • Description

    Description

    This is an agroecological project that includes the organic farm in the heart of the Ricote Valley, also known as Moorish Valley and a rural cottage, the Casica de Perintín. The farm it's 3 Ha of lemon and orange trees and a house veggie horture limited by the River Segura and the protected mountains of La Navela and La Umbría (Sierra de Ricote).
    We live at the farm: Natalia, Spanish biologst and translator (from English and Catalan), my daughter Hawa, born in October 2011 and 2-3 permanent volunteers. We share the farm with volunteers some years ago and also with friends and some animals and pets: hens, dogs and cats (maybe a couple of lambs soon!). Volunteers will be lodged at the big house of La Era, where Nat and Hawa live, and there's a powerful wifi available, although apparently in the middle of nowhere ;).

    We are currently recovering the former structures and functioning of the citric and fruit trees, the orchards, of this unique, beautiful and tranquil spot. So there's always field work to do, like streaming, pruning, cutting and preparing wood, fixing stonewalls and watering channels, picking up fruits, fixing fences, water pipes....apart from regularly preparing and fixing the rural house for incoming guests

    We welcome adaptative and responsible volunteers, eager to help both open air and inside, independent and also sociable. There's a lot of work around the year and we expect volunteers to adapt to our crazy and chaotic rythms; and to take responsability during their stage of certain tasks (like feeding the chickens) every day... even the days off (when they do eat too!). Enjoying cooking and giving a hand regularly with housework, without need to be told are always welcomed.

    You won't probably ever forget the magic atmosphere !

    No dogs allowed, sorry; we have already some and they still do not understand well the concept of "workaway doggies" ;)
    Please, do not apply for less than 3-4 weeks, as it's the minimum stay we can cope with! Gracias!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    The entire farm is a lovely sample of the traditional Murcian orchards (huerta), including the ancestral watering system designed by the Moorish centuries ago, and it's officially under Organic Ecolabel since 2003. So that volunteers will learn and experience authentic and sustainable ways of farming.
    We also maintain a veggie garden for the house and organise workshops on specific techniques (like bokasi, stonewalls...) that can be joined.
    The rural house, the Casica, provides the touristic scope of the management.
    We are an openminded and curious family, who hosts volunteers more than 10 years ago, so that we enjoy exchanging experiences and visions with interesting people!
