We have a rural stone built house and half an overgrown mountain in central Galicia. We are in the process of taming this mountain (the clearing has been done by machinery) creating terraces for an orchard, vegetable gardens and creating outside rooms, not with buildings but with creative ideas and the natural materials around us. Re-using and recycling old building materials to create spaces that will be a joy to use.
This spring and summer we will need help with building dry stone walls to create terraces and to allow drainage, we have several natural springs, and putting a roof on the barns which will protect the old stone walls from decaying further.
In exchange for food and accommodation, we ask for a maximum of 20 hours a week work. We will not expect you to do anything more than we do ourselves and we will be working alongside you. We like to show our helpers a little of Galicia during their time with us, the countryside, the people and the culture.
