Hi my name is Chris and my partner is Joanna.
(To save you time reading through we are no need of volunteers untill March )
We live in the countryside about 4 miles from the beautiful town of Vejer de la Frontera and the same distance from some great beaches. ( We have two grown up children who occasionally visit )
I have been a teacher, truck driver and qualified as a plumber, and Joanna been a teacher, translator and led various courses and written a book.
We are both into personal development (Buddhismand Shamanism),sustainable living, permaculture, growing veg and enjoying life. I play the guitar, I'm sort of an old folky really but recently joined a group singing Kirtan Om. I go jogging and go walking most weekends unless it is the summer, then it is the beach yeah yeah!
We enjoy good food ;-] having fun and working in the garden as much as we can. We are mostly vegetarian but we would be more than happy to adapt to any vegan or raw food volunteers.
Before sending an email also please include when you are wanting to visit.
We have a reliable internet service.

Looking forward to hearing from you all.

Chris and Jo

The work bit

There always seems to be painting work that needs doing, and apart from summer, the garden always needs love and attention. We have a couple of permaculture and natural building projects ongoing, so help with that might be useful. If you love cleaning, or rendering, or painting, or sewing, or making mosaics, or woodwork, or graphic design, or... there's always the opportunity to get deeply into a project and move it along. We are also aware that volunteers bring with them their own skills so we are happy to hear your suggestions about what you can offer too.

At the moment we are really keen on having somebody with some basic woodworking skills. There are quite a few easier projects like repairing wooden chairs and building shelves in the little workshop but depending on your skills there are cupboards inside the house and a patio covering. Though we generally ask volunteers to be able to cook visit we are more than keen for anybody with woodworking skills to pass on the cooking if they wish!

Volunteers take turns with the usual household tasks, along with us, but usually once a week we ask them to help with a bigger housework job.It helps us a lot if volunteers can cook so please let us know if you cant when apply.

We always try to give volunteers options on what to do but jobs inevitably vary depending on time of year and weather conditions.
We speak Englisha nd Spanish.

Looking forward to hearing from you all.

Chris and Jo
