We have created a Mediterranean mountain garden here in the Alpujarras of Granada province, southern Spain. As an officially registered not for profit organisation we open the garden to visitors on a regular basis. There are just the two of us here (Robert and William, mid 50's) full time, working on this project along with running a successful self catering holiday home business. The help we need from you is mainly with the garden and can encompass a wide range of tasks, from weeding, and composting to cultivation of our vegetable garden. Building work is sometimes required but not always. The work can be physically demanding.

Two week placements are offered initially. Volunteers will stay in our house in a comfortable room that has two single beds and its own bathroom, under floor heating during cold weather. No smokers only please. Wi-fi available. All meals and accommodation provided in exchange for 6 hours work per day, 5 days a week, but some flexibility may be necessary. Help also expected with preparing food, clearing up and some general chores of everyday life. Couples often work out better due to the nature of the accommodation, but single volunteers can also be accommodated as long as you are an independent type of person who can occupy yourself during free time.

Our house and land are situated in the high Alpujarras, in the countryside between Pitres and Pórtugos (1.5km from each). Arriving by bus is relatively easy, 3 buses a day from Granada to Pitres.

Plenty of fresh air, fantastic views and very good food. We also offer walking holidays so we have plenty of information about this for you to borrow in your free time.
