    Descrição

    Hello, We are in the Sierra de las Nieves, Malaga Province. We will be looking for volunteers to come Spring 2022, to stay here from May onwards. Please be patient if we do not reply immediately as we are not looking at messages all the time! We look at the trees and listen to the bees and birds instead. 🥰

    We particularly welcome couples or friends (2 or 3) travelling together, or we try to get volunteers to come at the same time (which is difficult). If you have your own van that is O.K. too. We are not a business of any kind and don't take paying guests. We are a family unit and look after our land together. We are not selling our produce and our ethos is to exchange or give away any surplus produce....currently exchanging spinach for beetroot and later pumpkins for avocados.

    We care for our olive trees and we will be planting vegetables and cutting areas of fire risk, We have grown many trees from seed and fruit stones, so we must plant them when it rains. We are making hugel holes! . Fascinated? Read.... The Art and Science of Making a Hugelkultur Bed .
    ...
    Used for centuries in Eastern Europe and Germany, hugelkultur (in German hugelkultur translates roughly as “mound culture”) is a gardening and farming technique whereby woody debris (fallen branches and/or logs) are used as a resource.
    Alozaina is famed for its olives and mountain walks with the Biosphere Reserve, now a National Park. You could give a hand with a variety of tasks; dry land management, small maintenance tasks, herbal wisdom, planting veggie patch, plus maybe some cooking and a few domestic chores. We look forward to you contacting us soon. We can give you our email and phone number after you have made first contact.

    We offer simple accommodation and delicious vegetarian food in exchange for your volunteer work involvement in our on-going eco-living experience and organic growing. This is normally for six hours a day, five days a week. The hours and days are flexible depending on the time of year and weather conditions. We either prepare food together or you will have access to a small kitchen and vegetarian foodstuffs.

    Usually the minimum stay is two weeks, but we are sometimes seeking some longer-term helpers. If you wish to stay longer than 2 weeks, we reserve the right to discuss and agree this with you toward the end of your second week with fortnightly reviews thereafter.

    Our ecological house nestles among pine trees, huge rocks and red earth on the mountainside above a typical white Andalucian village. There are stunning views in every direction. The house demonstrates and incorporates a number of environmental features, including independent water supply from rainwater harvesting and borehole, solar heated water and solar generated electricity.

    It is essential that you speak some English as we are from the U.K.. You need to be physically fit and able to adjust to changing needs. You will be asked to assist with food preparation/washing up, weekly cleaning and sometimes painting. This is more than just an alternative holiday as you will learn some eco skills and plant wisdom and hopefully have a life-enriching experience here as well as be able to enjoy the life of a small white Spanish pueblo with its many festivals and places to eat. Mountain and forest walks are all around and if we are going somewhere interesting we will invite you along. Buses go direct to historic Ronda and cultural city of Malaga.

    Projects that you may become involved with could include:
    Vegetable growing on 'dry' land (based on organic and permaculture principles). Olive tree management. Water conservation. Woodland fire protection management. Forest paths, stone work. Herb garden.

    Your Hosts:
    Alloa Patricia is a committed environmentalist. She has many years experience of hosting volunteers and WWOOFERS both in UK and Spain. Three family members also live here.

    Booking procedures:
    If you would like to visit, email us with some information about yourself, your age, your interest or experience in sustainable living, organics or permaculture and your skills. Under no circumstances will we accept visitors who have not made prior arrangements with us.
    We are 1 hour by bus from Malaga city. The nearest airport is Malaga. We can advise on bus times and car hire. (note; last bus from Malaga city is around 5pm so please bear this in mind when booking flights) After we have confirmed your stay we need to know your time of arrival in the village so that we can meet you, as we have to take you the last 3km to the house.

    We look forward to welcoming you to this nature paradise.
    Alloa Patricia.

    You will learn that there are no 'weeds' as most plants have a value, many of them being medicinal. You will be staying within an artistic and creative natural environment with stunning views, walks and hikes, eagles soaring above you. It is near to a typical Andaluz white pueblo that has many traditions and a seemingly constant programme of fiestas and events, and a strong flamenco tradition. You can get a bus (1 hour) to the cultural cities of Malaga or Ronda. You can practice your Andaluz Spanish - more of a challenge than castellano! And sample our wines and local foods. There is a wide community of like-minded people around who get together regularly for seasonal events, celebrations, music.

    Acomodação

    VENUE AND ACCOMMODATION;
    We provide simple accommodation in clean caravan or wooden cabin with breathtaking views to Sierra and sea. We have wi-fi you can use if you bring your own device. Sometimes you will eat with us (vegetarian with occasional optional fish/eggs/chicken), or you will be provided with food to prepare in a small outside kitchen.

    Shower and eco-toilet are near to accommodation; the hot water is subject to sun, usually not a problem! For safety reasons we do not take children or young persons under 18 years. For the same reason, sorry no dogs or other pets. We have to insist that there are no fires under any circumstances, as the whole mountainside is a high fire risk for most of the year. Smoking is not permitted in accommodation or house, only designated area. We do not encourage excessive consumption of alcohol or use of recreational drugs.

    In your personal time there is freedom to enjoy the sunshine, use the yoga deck, our plunge pool, and the coolness of the meditation sanctuary or just laze in the hammocks under the pine trees in the 'place of the wind', just right for siestas! The village is 3km away down a mountain track or you can take long hikes in the mountains. You will be able to pick up holiday Spanish from the locals, make contact with other like-minded people, enjoy music sessions and art. Or cool down at the large village swimming pool (summer only). There are buses to the coast or inland attractions.
