Work

Work will be mainly MANUAL and will be determinated by the circumstances. Here are some example of tasks to be done: - Bioconstruction house for guests - The stonewalls of the terraces have to be renovated - Reconstruction of the house and creating eco friendly constructions and infrstructures - The ground has to be covered with mulch to protect it from drying out - To save water we want to change the irrigation system for a drip irrigation system - We always have to clean and repair our spring which supplies us with fresh springwater, and we need to construct a grey water recycling system - For fertilizing we make our own emulsion and we produce a lot mulch with the remains of tree-cuts - Our objective is to be mainly self sufficient so we would like to develop a bigger vegetable garden and to have animals as sheep in the future

Accomodation and food

Accomodation will be basic in a tipi. Host provides organic meals, fresh out of our ecological garden with breakfast, lunch, and dinner . We ask for a minimum stay of 30 days. In our experience it often takes volunteers a more then two weeks to feel fully connected to the vision of the project as well as the vibe of the finca and surrounding community, so volunteers interested in staying longer than 30 days are very happily welcome.

Location and leisure

Garrofera is a VERY ISOLATED land 10 km away from Sella . You can feel the philosophy for the following text: " We understand that we are part of a larger ecosystem, of which all the species of planet Earth are part (which belongs to an even greater system) including the species of the "Garrofera. The place where our project begins, it is a place that was and abandon cultivated land where Carob Tree was able to surviveand turned the place into a carob tree area (Garrofera) And that's why we want to be a being, to be beautiful and to be connected with oneself and with other major and minor systems, so that we enjoy life, while living the experiences that life brings to you in the day to day." Apart from taking part in the Workshps organised by the association you can practise climbing and there are plenty of trails to enjoy trecking as well and a natural pond to swimm. Close to the place you can find the opposite type of spots such as Benidorm or Altea, as touristic developed towns which you may visit in your spare time, if you need so.

The project is all about creating an ecologically conscious and family-oriented community space close to the beautiful coastline of Alicante untouched by tourism. Garrofera is a new project so there is a lot of exciting work to be done and the opportunity to really see how each day's work greatly contributes to the overall beauty and functionality of the project. As the project continues to develop so does the work, so we ask volunteers to have an open mind, peaceful attitude, and a hardworking spirit. Most of the work will be in the gardens and construction and participating in the dayly COMMUNITY life

Work

The aim is that volunteers communicate with children in English, to encourage them to overcome the fear of speaking in a foreign language through non-formal educational methods and setting. In first two days of the workcamp participants will get a formation by Fundacion Cruz de los Angeles in order get to know the local environment and to understand the legal context of working with children under state protection (that includes signing confidentiality contracts and to comply with some restrictions). Children we're going to work with are aged from 6 to 18, therefore our group will be split into two non-fixed teams, where participants will rotate and organize different activities according to the kids age group. We will prepare activities and materials in English on different topics, such as archaeology, music, food, animals. With the older kids – teenagers, we will spend time in the afternoons, and mornings are for the younger kids.

Accomodation and food

In a house situated in Colunga. Volunteers will stay apart from the group of children. Food will be provided by the Fundación Cruz de los Ángeles. Breakfasts will be prepared by volunteers, lunch and dinner in the house or together with kids, depending on daily activities.

Location and leisure

The province Colunga lies on the Cantabrian Sea and is located in the north of Spain, which is considered as the green area of Spain (lots of rain, trees and plants). Playa de la Griega is beautiful place and it is the nearest beach to the center town of the province, Colunga. This place is famous for one particular thing - here the footprints of dinosaurs were found. East of the beach on the cliffs is the famous and spectacular site of dinosaur footprints. The enormous size of these footprints, some of them reach 1.30 meters in diameter, allows it to be considered ones the largest footprints discovered so far.
