I´m Jacobo (39). I recently got the land in Malaga province, Andalusia. The land is beautifully situated in a valley in national park Sierra de las Nieves (Snowy mountains), between towns of Ojén and Monda. 20 minutes drive to the beach.

The land is around 5 acre, totally organic. There are around 100 trees, 70 olives, oranges, almonds, apricots and many more. As we recently started settling down here, big part of our daily tasks include construction.We use mostly recycled materials for building and construction. We are also starting a garden, collecting and preserving food, firewood etc. At the moment we are constructing a house with a green roof, pruning trees, painting walls and landscaping/gardening.

We offer you a bed in a volunteer room or comfortable tent with mattress,also here are a big parking to put your van, hot shower and meals (mostly vege) in exchange for 4,5 hours help 6 days a week.

Schedule of the day: breakfast 9.00 am; 9.30-14.00 work, lunch and free time. Please make sure to wake up on time. We povide tasty and nutritional food. We expect you to help with washing dishes, preparing meals and cleaning the common areas.

In your free time you can trek around, take a trip to the seaside (we can drop you if we are going there or you can take a bus - there is a bus stop 15 min walk from us). One day trips to Malaga, Sevilla, Cordoba, El Chorro, Cadiz beaches etc. We have a special place to do yoga.
We have a nice local restaurant just 3 minutes by car, local shops and more bars are within 5 km.

We are extremely excited to put our dreams into reality and hope that you will share our feelings.
This volunteer opportunity is good for people interested in simple life in the nature. You will have an opportunity to see how everything starts (if you are looking out to buy a rural property this is a good trial for you!!). You can learn building, survival, gardening, animal keeping. Bring us your smiles and enthusiasm!
P.s. Also don't forget your warm sleeping bag, torch, work clothes and shoes and your organic soap/shampoo.
Also u can check the Facebook "Utopía Andalucía"

The volunteer program is open again, we needs people for the olives season (November) woodmaker and handyman to fix some things and built new one like greenhouse, wood platform,....
