The help we need currently more than anything else is with Household Chores, a 'house fairy'! We are spending so much time cooking, shopping, cleaning, looking after kids, maintaining our business, that there is no time for the creative development of our projects (see below). While this has been fine for the first 6 months of new baby's life, we are now feeling the need for a bit more freedom.

We are an artist/musician couple with an 8 year old daughter, Alma, and a new arrival, Elara, who is just 9 months. Carmen is Spanish from the coast of Granada and Tom is from Edinburgh.

14 years ago we bought a ruined village house with some land in the mountains, and have worked hard restoring the house every winter, that accomplished, we now have very comfortable accommodation to offer (see the website of Casa Aloe).
The reason we need your support is because we are shifting our labours to a charming piece of land that has not been touched for 30 years.

We need your support in our home because we need to concentrate on clearing the undergrowth, rebuilding of drystone walls that support the terraced fields, restoration of irrigation systems and water storage tanks, planting of trees and construction of a roofed and floored outdoor space for yoga/art/music workshops.

Both of us are bi-lingual (English/Spanish) and happy to facilitate language exchange.

We offer food and lodging in return for 5 hrs work per day 5 days per week.
