Help us with building new guest houses, manage our garden and animals, and additionally teach and train our children on El Hierro, Canary Islands.

We are a family of six, two parents and four children (5 to 11 years old) with a big ecologic permaculture garden, many fruit trees, some animals, a big climbing frame with swings and a trapeze, and a lot of ideas to improve our infrastructure.

We want to build more places for visitors to stay (small houses made of natural volcanic stones or recycled wood). That means also build the roof and the interior (some furniture, doors, windows).

IMPORTANT: Building is our primary goal at the moment, so we need hard working helpers. Other help is optional.

You can also help in our big garden, planting more trees, caring and harvesting our vegetables and fruits. And helping to make our gardening more efficient.

And we would like to have some trainer, teacher or artist for our children. Our children like a lot to do acrobatics (on the floor, parkour) and aerobatics (trapeze, aerial silk). But you can of course also teach them any language, physics, mathematics, or any cultural knowledge, especially any kind of art or music.

You will sleep in a tent, and as soon as the first guest house is ready (which you can help to finish), you’ll have the pleasure to try it out. If you like, you could also sleep under the open sky, which is recommendable if you like viewing the stars and planets and the milky way. We have very few rain on El Hierro (which is a pity for our garden).

At the moment we have one composting toilet, a second one would be nice.

The shower for our helpers is open air (in a hidden place).

The way to our houses from the street is 300 meters (walking or cycling, but no car entrance).

We have some bicycles that you can use. We have no car. Hitchhiking on El Hierro is very easy. Sometimes we rent a car for a few days, which we can share.

You may use our landline telephone to call your family and friends at home.

Our internet connection has a velocity of 300 Mbit/s symmetrical.

If you are a family with children, you would be very welcome.

We expect that you help us 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week.
