We are building up an Association for international and local exchange in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. We would need any kind of help as soon as possible. Mainly phisical work like painting, cleaning, building (bathrooms, kitchen, etc,), carpentery, plumbing and we also need help with gardening.

Our place will be a meeting point for international travellers as well as locals. In our house all these people will get information about all kinds of outdoor activities that can be practiced in Gran Canaria. Also we will organize live concerts, exhibitions and talks of locals for the tourists.

We want to connect people through Sport & Culture following the old greek slogan "A healthy mind in a healthy body".

After finishing the first renovation of the house we started to create our own garden in the huge patio and the roof top of our more than 100 years old house in order to grow our own, healthy food for our guests. We also needs urgently help with gardening, some professional knowledge would be very welcome!

Sunstainability and protection of our nature and beautiful island are very important for us. That's why we are trying to use a lot of natural elements to build up the place (check out our pics). For example we are doing beach clean ups and some of the things like drift wood and other nice things we find, we will use in a creative way in the house (we already build many "pots" for our plants out of the driftwood.

We want to try to buy as less "new things" as possible and work with things other people throw carelessly into nature or also second hand things.

We want to give the "garbabe" we find in nature a second life and new meaning. There will be also a kind of art exposition in our house which should make people think about our "Garbage" and plastic society and build consciouness that we should only buy things, that we really need.

Everything we throw away, does not just disappear. The floating plastic and wood in the ocean that ends up also on teh beaches of Gran Canaria is the best example for this.

We really love what we do and are happy to share some of this big motivation and fun with you!

We are based on Gran Canaria, also called the "Island of Everlasting Spring" because of its all-year perfect climate with 20-28 degrees.

Be sure that we will share all our love & knowledge about the island with you!
