The watermill is a project centre we rebuilt. It is restored mostly ecologically and built into the rock like an earthship, it is in the beautiful Cabo de Gata natural park. The watermill is off the grid, powered by solar and wind power.

Located in Europe's only desert, close to Carboneras and some lovely natural beaches, market and vibrant cafes.

Currently we are looking for people to start at short notice. To assist with writing, eco construction, film and a new greenhouse project. Also looking for general gardening and in the development of super soils/composting etc. Helpers with any graphic design, copy word or film, marketing, photography, website, journalist, NGO experience and any musicians also welcome.

We have been hosting workshops in eco-construction and last year was providing vegan catering at a local music night. The mill during the day is active and busy, at night it is more relaxed.

There are nature walks here, great beaches and mountain bikes to use.

We are currently producing a book looking at offering new solutions to Climate Change, Refugees, Plastic in the Pacific, Famine, Migration, Conservation and eco-system management. The book will also have peoples personal experiences from various participants have worked on solutions and their personal experiences and insights. So any book, publishing related skills are very welcome or people who have worked on projects that have made a difference and want to write about their experiences.

Here are some film links to the mill and projects we do here. Other films are on youtube.

The house is now under new ownership, however the projects we do continue and therefore we are relocating. So I cannot host volunteers at the moment, however interested to hear from people with writing, editing, graphic design, NGO skills and experience to work on a future NGO book project.
