  • Descrição

    Descrição

    Help needed in October and November.

    Are you fit, strong and enthusiastic? Do you like the outdoors?

    We like to think that the people who come to visit us can learn something about off-grid living and organic methods of farming/horticulture in a beautiful, relaxing setting in our little corner of Andalucia.

    Please only apply if you are fully vaccinated against Covid.

    We are a couple we took early retirement from education. Karen has a land-based/environment background Steve was Principal of a Secondary School. We live in a beautiful setting 3km above the town of Orgiva in the Alpujarras. We built, with the help of local Spanish builders, our house, with pool, and now need help with our 69 organic acres. We enjoy walking, listening to music, reading, watching films and box sets etc etc.

    There are olive, almond, vines and various fruit trees to tend, brush to be cut, land to be cleared, wood to be gathered and sorted, fruit and vegetables to be grown and animals such as chickens, turkeys, dogs and cats to be cared for. Sometimes we have an orphan lamb or two to be bottle fed. We are almost self-sufficient in vegetables, eggs and meat. There are various projects on the go and things to do around the house. We are completely off-grid but comfortable none-the-less.

    If you arrive in your own vehicle please appreciate that we live 2km up a dirt track.

    Non-smokers preferred.

    Orgiva is a good sized town with many bars, restaurants and a sports centre. It is 30 minutes from the coast and an hour to Granada. There are regular bus services in either direction. Granada has a train station also. Malaga is the main airport and Granada has a limited selection of flights from UK and Europe. There is a ski resort in the Sierra Nevada mountains just above Granada. There are many beautiful walks. Our aim is to restore our land to its former glory. If you have a farming or horticultural background we may be of particular interest to you.
