    Description

    Welcome to El Hierro, the smallest of the Canarian islands. I invite workawayers to stay and work on my ecological farmland, situated on the north coast of the island, at 350 meters hight, where it can be cold and damp during the winter nights. This is an old traditional farm where the ancestors worked a lot with cleaning the soil and making lava stone walls for protection of their crops. So far I have cleaned away bushes and planted one hectar with 250 new fruit trees and vegetables that are ready to eat all year around. On this level there are no natural trees anymore, so reforestation is also interesting. Here I live a peaceful and healing life in a tiny wooden cottage. There is no electricity since I am a burned out filmmaker who got sensitive to electromagnetic fields and radiation. The goal is to soon have a SOLAR KIT that is safe for me. There is mobile signal / 3 G and 4 G on some parts of the land.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You will hopefully find peace thanks to living in nature and working with the soil, plants, lava stones in a silent, beautiful landscape with full view over the Ocean. The word "stress" doesn't exist here.

    You would take part of my aim to learn more about ecological farming (permaculture, biodynamic) with the focus on fertilization and regeneration of the soil. For example making biocoal/charcoal, different manures, composts and natural pesticides. I am already mulching a lot and fertilizing the eco-way. And I would like to experiment and know more about regeneration and depuration of water.

    If you want to learn or practice languages, I speak fluent Spanish, French, English (with a background as a translator and teacher) and Swedish which is my mother tongue. On my magic land I want to do more of schamanism, yoga, dancing and meditation. I can also share a little of my time for small film projects or for writing scripts.

    I am grateful for receiving people with initiative and knowledge about garden work/ecological farming/plants/herbs/fruittrees and / or building of cottages/sheds of wood/stone/other materials. Also restoration of old stone ruins and making a new entrance/small road. And good if someone knows about water treatment and solar cells technology and electricity.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    Depending on the numbers of people staying. One or two persons can stay in a small wooden tipi, otherwise in tents. Outdoor dry toilet, outdoor kitchen, outdoor shower. Simple...but very cosy and nice...according to my Wookawayers and visitors so far... During the winter nights It can be cold and damp on this north coast so please bring a good winter sleeping bag and warm clothes and shoes.

    Autres infos...

    Most people who visit El Hierro come for the nature experience, to walk/hike/trek/bike or to swim, snorkle or fly parapente. It's a small island and you drive to the other end of the island within less than two hours. There are regular buses between the villages. From my land it's about one-two kilometres uphill to the closest village with transport and shops. You would also be able to lend one of my two cars.

    Small space up by the road at the entrance parking. And one space inside the farm. Nevertheless it might be a challenge when leaving the farm to drive uphill to the exit. This could though be solved with help from a friend's tractor of 4 wheel driven car.
