  • Description


    I am Mariposa aka Marcus, from London born and bred. I have spent many years living and in love with Spain and so finally I've taken the plunge to make my childhood dream a reality, and move to Spain full time, Andalucía!

    The big plan is too build a Spiritual (not religious) sanctuary and eco gardens. Self reliance is key to our project. To create three gardens. An Apothecary, and Orchard garden and the other is to create a large vegetable and flower garden. To keep some livestock such as chickens for fresh eggs, goats for milk etc. No animals will be killed here. They will all have names and can be petted :-)

    The house will be renovated in to a Spiritual Sanctuary, offering holistic therapies and creative Artistic retreats. Eventually!

    The plans are vast so come and help us create it, while enjoying all the benefits!

    I hope to see you soon!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    The project has been 30 years inside a patient mind that has now been set free to create the dream in reality.

    I have the house, the land and the energy. You have the skill, the determination and the passion to help make our dream project a reality. All I ask is that you come with a skill set and an open mind and heart, and at least a week to really make a difference. In return you will receive bed and board. Learn new skills, create lasting memories, make new friends and to leave your mark!

    For more information and to book a place with us, please message us with your enquiry, include your full name and contact details. We will then follow up with an message confirmation for your stay...

    I believe we get out what we put in. So together there is lots to be learned. We are at school everyday, if we want to that is.

    Creating a Bio-Garden in El Olivar

    We need help to renovate the house and cave rooms too but the Bio-Garden is as important. Fruit, vegetable and flower gardens that will sustain us all.

    The gardens were the first of projects to have started. Most of the beds are now dug and manured.

    The Plan 2020-21

    The House and Caves

    We especially need people with building and electrical experience.

    The Bio-Gardens

    -Build a bamboo polytunnel
    -Build a ram pump to pump water up hill without the need of power.
    -Install Irrigation to Veggie Garden
    -Create Apothecary Garden Framework.

    so if you have the skills and passion for our project, contacts us.

    We all have something to give, share. so come and show us what your made of ;-)
