We are Badulina intentional community in South Spain. Since 7 years we have been an experimental community close by, but since half a year we have bought officially a 9 hectare (22 acre) of a whole hill with small cortijo. We are at 500m above sea level and you can walk to the near town Orgiva. The climate is mild to subtropical, it does not freeze in winter, but can be over 40 degrees in summer.

Currently we have house with guest room (with grid electricity and tap water) and some caravans for guest use. We plan on making more guest domes, yurts and tents.

We are 3 families with children and more people coming soon. We intend to grow to about 25 members (adults, children additional) that have their own private living plots on the land. For this we are going to build up the facilities in beautiful structures.

We have about 2 hectares with terraces and 265 olive trees and a hill side with estimated 500 almond trees. About 200 grape vines to make wine and grape products. Further over 100 fig trees, orange-, mandarin-, lemon-, apple-, pear-, walnut-trees, etc. We have our own source to water the land. We also want to continue and expand our bee keeping.

We plan to become self sufficient over time. For that we plan 2500m2 permaculture gardens in the next years, have chickens, plant more fruit trees, like avocados, mango's, conquat, chirimoya, etc.

At the moment we have no skilled permaculture teacher. But if you have permaculture or other organic garden skills yourself, we would love to invite you and give a space to create a garden.

We have capacity for 4 helpXers to come to our place to learn organic and sustainable living and help voluntarily. When a helpXer is exceptionally skilled in carpentry, yurt building, garden making, or any other useful way we love to receive help in that way.
Further we need help in maintaining the fruit trees, gardens, clearing bushes, or dense growing areas. Repair water tubes or water the land. Also cooking, child care and cleaning are needed. We can occasionally explain about bee keeping or share knowledge about olive oil production process.

We expect a willingness from you of 5days of 5hours. You will be guided some days, but need to work independent and be self responsible to complete your daily hours of daily help.

We offer an environment of family living space combined with being in beautiful nature. And are open for helpXing families with children.

No drugs nor alcohol abuse. We want to create a friendly and safe atmosphere for adults and children.

Sorry no dogs.
