We are a young married couple seeking volunteers to help develop our permaculture & forest gardens. We are steadily building infrastructure to host yoga retreats. Helpers with experienced skills in compost toilet building, irrigation, water systems, plumbing, carpentry, building, wood carving, path laying, stone wall building, step building, landscaping, gardening, permaculture.. are especially welcome.
This year we are pregnant with our baby due in late Autumn :) help with organising, sorting paperwork, refining our database, yoga promotions online for our retreats, Spanish lessons and general day to day help is a great support for our growing family.
Currently we live with 2 cats & a dog. Our nearest neighbours have two young children and we all welcome families to come to play & work together. Seasonally we love help with olive and almond harvests, acecia clearing, pool cleaning, strimming, seed planting, harvesting, pruning trees and more.
We share our kitchen/cooking & facilities with you in the house, making meals together when possible so we all eat 3 healthy meals a day. We provide 3 meals for 6 hours work exchange per day, hours can be flexible to suit all of our needs.
We mostly eat vegetarian but occasionally a little fish and meat when possible. We can easily cater vegetarian, for vegan, raw or specialised diets there's a herbolaria in Cadiar where you can buy yourself specialist products. A van selling fish comes to town most days and there's a famous ham shop in Yegen called Jamon Muñoz if you are in need of meat.
For accommodation we have one Mongolian yurt, a campervan converted from an old ambulance, and a tent for two. We can provide all bedding and request a small fee for washing at the laundrette during dry season. This is an off grid home with careful use of water, especially during the dry season.
Yoga lessons, meditation, kirtan, and massage training are available with us. We aim to offer a comfortable stay whilst working together to improve our facilities for future guests. We'd love to build a solar compost toilet, shower, shared kitchen, shaded rest areas and a beautiful yoga shala.. Step by step ;)
The land is peaceful, in beautiful nature over looking the mountains. Yegen has a small Coveiran shop, a gift shop, bars, pharmacy and doctors within 15-20minutes hiking or 4x4 driving route. You need to be fit and in reasonably good health to enjoy this landscape.
The nearest bank, post office and other facilities are 20minutes drive from Yegen in Cadiar or Ugijar. There are two buses a day to and from Yegen so please plan your journies effectively. For an additional cost it maybe possible to arrange some transport by car.
We have wifi in the house.
Smoking is permitted in specific areas, outdoors only.. Due to fire risks in this region we ask you to be very careful.
Outdoor fires are not permitted in this region for good reason.
Children are very welcome under adult supervision.
Pets are not allowed.
During free time you can visit the southern beaches or Granada city within 2 hours drive from Yegen. You can visit the Sierra Nevada, come to our yoga classes, go hiking.. and much more. Benny, our dog loves to join people on walks.
From July to the end of August public swimming pools are open near to Mecina Bomberon, in Ugijar and Cadiar, the cost is around 2€ per person. You can also take a dip in cold natural spring pools nearby. There are many fiestas and you can find details online.
We look forward to meeting you and learning together on the land.
