Our Volunteer Coordinator is about to finish his time here and we are urgently looking for a new one. Without the coordinator we can't receive any other volunteers. Please contact us ONLY if you are looking forward to stay at least 3 months and like to manage a team of volunteers. We would organize a skype call for more details.

We are a couple working with permaculture near the ocean (literally 5min by foot from beach and natural pools) and the Anaga mountains reserve of the biosphere.
We have been in the island together since over 10 years.
We speak 5 languages, are artists and musicians. We do yoga, singing and meditation sometimes. We also love to swap massages and various therapies.
We plant local trees, fruit trees, veggies. We build with clay, stone and wood.
The meals are vegetarian and vegan friendly.
We will provide you with more information once you contacted us.
Smokers or drug users would not fit here, sorry.
You can see more about the project here www.serenelightgardens.org and in which conditions the volunteers (called SEVA opportunity in our project) come:www.sevatenerife.tk

After 10 years looking for the appropriate land, we found 3 years ago this amazing land in which we worked tirelessly for the last 2,5 years but we finally came to the realization that unfortunately it is way too much work for our capacities and health.

It has a huge potential for ecoturism as it has an excellent access, the amazing natural pools of bajamar are just at 5min WALKING distance, natural park of Anaga starts after 15min walking, health-food shop around the corner, airport and university city at 15min by car and bus stop only 30meters from the back door. To give you an idea,you can see the location of the farm in red on the attached map and the natural pools in yellow.

The farm has already the following features:

-Over 600 native plants planted to create a wind-break
-40 fruit trees just planted of all kinds (banana, papaya, mango, sapotes, nisperos,figs, orange, lemons etc...
-2 containers as tool room and storage (many of the tools are included as a totally equipped farm)
-over 200 trucks of organic material have been brought to enhance the soil
-artistic outside shower
-artistic dry toilet
-Solar System (700W panels, 2 batteries of 250A, and inverter that can work with up to 3KW)
-more than 1km of water pipes, dripping lines.
-best water in Tenerife with only 240 of conductivity and ph7,4 (normally 400-2000 conductivity and ph 8-9 most of the island) for 0,56€/m3
-2 basic huts made of cane and palm leaves
-small stone house of 10m2
-small wooden house of 18m2
-Wood platform (we used it for yoga) with pergola of 24m2
-Potential to get the permit to build 350m2 of agricultural buildings + 250m2 of buildings for complementary activities like education + 30-70m2 of legal house once the new planning of the city hall comes out planned for 2019-2020 +more m2 of touristic buildings when presenting a serious project to the government of the Island (cabildo).

Here a video to have an idea:  [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=oFaFPMknIG0[/youtube]
This video has been made last year in October and the new artistic dry toilet as well as the two small good houses are not visible. Pictures on request.

Price 420.000€
Yes, we know the community. Many friends participate there. It is in the south of the island.
Hi Kristopher,

Ideally we would like to exchange for something smaller and our scale and not so ambitious. Gold is much more stable then any country money at this time but we can figure that out with anyone interested.

The land is between 50 and 65meters over sea level and there is no sea water infiltration (as most of the island has) because the well where we have the water from has little mineralization (what is usually rare in tenerife because of the ocean water infiltration).
