    Descrição

    We are a happy couple 55 and 52 years old living outside the little village of Albanchez, Almeria, Andalucia, in the very south of Spain. Tonje from Oslo, Norway and Eduardo Spanish grown up here. We live in an old farm house called a 'cortijo'. A house which used to be populated by both people and animals separate under the same roof. The cortijo has a cave inside used as a storage room for food oil wine etc. We live in a small group of houses in the municipality of Albanchez, Almeria. Only five people live here permanently but there are several families coming on weekends, vacation and longer stays during the year. Dogs and cats also make this the friendly place it is to live in. We both have children and grandchildren busy with studies, work and family. Eduardo's back has gotten very bad and we now have problems finish building the house and taking care of the agriculture business. We love cooking and enjoy experimenting. We are interested in changing the environment by thinking permaculture solutions and need help to make our dreams come through. We have also been participating as citizen scientists in the GROW Observatory project. Tonje speaks Spanish, Norwegian and some German. Eduardo Spanish. The house has unlimited wifi.
    We are open minded and easy going. We have had workawayers since November 2016 and wish new friends welcome.

    We offer a variety of tasks and you can practice your Spanish in a beautiful authentic environment. Our philosophy is to protect the antique and old traditions as much as possible and you might learn some new ways of solving challenges.
    The village, Albanchez, is as close you can walk there in 40 minutes or use our bicycle - any ways we're happy to take you there with one of our cars. Once a week we go shopping in Albox which has supermarkets and shops of all kinds ( also a nice market on Tuesdays). There are 4 bars in the village. The population counts approximately 700 inhabitants, the colony of English expats included. In the neighbour village Olula del Rio there is an interesting art museum with their own collection of Goya. You can connect or disconnect to the busy world as you like. We live outside the village with peace, nature and a marvellous star view at night. In July and August the town hall provides the village with a public pool completly renovated 2018.

    Ajuda

    We have some farming going on around the year for our own use.
    Renovating an old traditional rustic Andalucian farm house. The cave inside the house needs to be finished, we plan an outdoor kitchen, the space around the house needs a hand etc etc.
    Building with traditional materials ( yeso, caña, natural stones, wooden beams) and modern ( bricks, cement etc), electricity installations, painting and cleaning inside and outdoor.
    We also need people to help out growing, weeding and harvesting organic vegetables and feed the chickens.
    The kind of help also depends on which season it is. Examples: In the winter months we pick olives. Summer agriculture. Late summer harvesting and a lot of preserving vegetables and little bit of wine making. Our days never look the same. Some days there are many tasks and others less so you have to be a flexible person who can deal with changes.
    We need responsible grown up handy people. Some building experience is an advantage but not necessary.
    You will be instructed with patience.
    You will benefit on having a driving license.
    If you know anything about permaculture it would be marvellous. We know very little but wish to improve.
    You have to speak Spanish as Eduardo doesn't speak English.

    Acomodação

    We have two bedrooms in the house.
    We offer breakfast and two meals (comida and cena). You buy your own wine/ beer and snacks.
    Note that our traditional life style will probably not be compatible with vegan lifestyle unless you are open minded.
    Though, we have had many vegetarians and that worked very well.
    We don't accept any drugs!
