I am setting up an eco campsite which will provide budget accommodation for travellers. I have a piece of land and permission to build, but will need help with a range of jobs, from clearing and preparing the land, to cooking for volunteers during the build. I would like helpers to work an average of 4 hours per day, in return for food and accommodation, but there is some room for flexibility, depending on circumstances.

The land is a 10 minute walk from the town of Vera, which has good public transport links, banks, supermarkets, etc. It is a 10 minute drive to the nearest beach, where you will find a long, beautiful coastline, with plenty of activities, bars and restaurants. Other nearby attractions include Tabernas, with its 'Mini-Hollywood' where many spaghetti westerns are filmed, and the beautiful Cabo de Gata national park, with a range of untouched beaches. There are also facilities for go-karting, horse-riding and a water park nearby.

Work started in November 2017 and will continue for several months. I am expecting the building license in February, which is when the main work will start, but there is plenty of preparation to do before then. I will need volunteer help during this time. Accommodation is provided in a bell tent, but if you have your own tent, caravan or motorhome, you are welcome to park on the land.
As I am at the beginning of the project, the living situation is very basic. There is no mains electricity or wifi, but there are cafes nearby with access. I am living in a motorhome with a solar panel, which can charge basic gadgets. Although this situation will develop, it might take a while. Please see the Camping VerdeVeras Facebook page for more information on our current progress.

Iím looking for people with experience in sustainable techniques, such as solar installation and permaculture, as well as people with traditional skills in building, plumbing and electrics. I also need people to help with cooking, gardening, marketing and web design.
