We have a small organic finca, nestled in the green lush valley of La Alpujarra, south-east of Granada, 2kms outside the small pueblo Órgiva (15minutes walk from town). There are many fruit trees including some ancient old olive trees and we have a small vegetable garden. The surrounding area supports many people living semi-sustainably and consciously and therefore offers many diverse and interesting opportunities.

With the help of many previous wonderful helpers, we have built a beautiful 100m2 strawbale house with veranda and a large bamboo structure which we have happily lived in for the past seven years.

It has now come to the time that everything needs some maintenance in order to keep it protected and in good shape and we are looking for some help to paint a coat of limewash on the house and to paint the bamboo structure. We also wish to build a wooden shade structure over the converted bus to protect it more from the elements together with a few other smaller projects on the land.

Unfortunately we do not currently have any spare accommodation because our converted bus is currently occupied therefore we are looking for someone or a couple who have their own vehicle and who wish to settle for a few weeks in one place. We can supply mains electricity and fresh water.

There is an alberca/plunge pool for keeping cool although that probably isn´t going to be necessary for these coming months! There is a compost toilet and outdoor shower.

I look forward to hearing from you.
