Hello everyone.

I'm looking for a volunteer who is travelling along northern Spain who would like a stay at a straw bale house with en-suite bathroom as your accommodation and food included for the help required below.

- Veggie Garden creation using local materials on the property to create raised veggie beds (the raised beds have been started already).
- Help cook and prepare meals for a straw bale course participants from the 30th September to 2nd Ocotober for 14 members. Full kitchen is decked out with the correct cook wear.
- Picking fruit and preserving in Jars. Plums, Nectarines, apples, Pears, etc

30th September to 2nd October weekend it will be hands on deck and then after that weekend (and before it too) 4 hours a day of help (5 day week) and the rest of your time is your own.

There may be more groups coming through in October with regard to straw bale weeks but nothing is booked yet.

The property has 2 houses and the main house will be rented in September from different groups and families and the straw bale house will be used for myself (in one room with bathroom) and volunteer in the other room (bunk beds (with their own bathroom).

Looking for a helpxer to start from the 5th September (or maybe even a week earlier if I chat with someone who I get along with) and will go on a week by week basis if the volunteer works well with me. Time spent here can be extended.

5 minute drive or 30 minute walk to local beach and a 12km hiking trail starts by the property entrance with views of the Picos de Europa National Park and north Atlantic Coast). 20 minutes drive to Picos de Europa National Park.

I would like to chat with the volunteer before they start and can speak Spanish but my native tongue is English (I'm a Yorkshire man).

I look forward to writing initially with all prospective volunteers and then select a few to chat with on skype or some other way.

PLEASE NOTE: WHILE THERE ARE GUESTS ON SITE WHERE WE ARE WORKING THERE IS A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF SPACE WE GIVE THEM LEAVING US BUSY WITH THE PROJECTS REQUIRED TO DO IN WHICH I WILL BE HELPING YOU WITH ALSO.

Best wishes,

Nigel
