  • Descrição


    We are Anton, Aimee, Moomoo & Black (two humans and two dogs).....

    Together we are living and working on a farm that is transitioning from conventional farming methods into a permaculture design and organic farming practices.

    Anton is a software engineer and Aimee is a project manager, permaculture teacher and soil scientist. We are both non-smokers and we don't use drugs. We enjoy the quiet solitude of our hills, reading books, and going for walks with the dogs.

    The property is in the Alpujarra hills near Lanjaron and Orgiva, it has stunning views of the hills and is surrounded by nature.

    We hope to include some farm animals in the near future and would like help with some woodworking construction projects.

    We are particularly keen to welcome families with children, but not so keen on people with pets as our dogs don't particularly get on very well with them.

    What we need


    compost toilet
    micro cabin
    outdoor shower
    wood shelter
    outdoor kitchen

    Health & well-being

    Should your stay start having adverse effects on your well being or anyone else's you may be asked to terminate your stay early. You can also terminate your stay whenever you want to.

    Lifts to and from town

    We will pick you up and drop you off in Lanjaron at the beginning and at the end of your stay, if you would like to leave the property during your stay you can hitch a ride to town when we are running errands or hitchhike.
