Help needed immediately - I need people to help with weeding, planting and light physical labour, immediately and throughout the winter. I also need creative people for furniture and decor. Please contact if you are interested and available. There is plenty of time off and the beaches are close enough for frequent visits, but I need people who are prepared to work hard & contribute to the project in some positive way during their work hours. You need to have initiative, be self-motivated, enthusiastic and have a sense of humour! NO ARRIVALS BETWEEN FRIDAY AND SUNDAY PLEASE. I would prefer people who can stay for at least a week.

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 cooking for volunteers, gardening and general labouring. I would like helpers to work an average of 5 hours per day, 5 days a week, in return for food and accommodation, but there is some room for flexibility, depending on circumstances. All volunteers have a 2 day trial period, to ensure you fit with our ethos. I would prefer people who can commit to stay at least a week, if not longer, but happy to discuss if your circumstances don't allow for that.

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. We now have the building license and the main work is about to start. I will need continued 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. PLEASE NOTE - the bell tent will not be available from November to March, so anyone coming in those months will need to bring their own accommodation. Volunteers are expected to contribute to the community spirit here - we are all living together and you are welcome to treat it as 'home', but we all look out for each other and the communal spaces are everyone's responsibility.
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 and we have solar power for charging most things. Although this situation will develop, it might take a while.

Please see the Camping VerdeVeras Facebook and Instagram page for more information on our current progress. Our website is

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.
