Join our community to experience off-grid living
We are currently accepting volunteers for 2024!

As a volunteer in Sunseed you’ll spend your time working on daily tasks that need to be done for the maintenance of our land and spaces. Next to working in the community, you'll have space to relax, socialise, work on your own project, explore the area, go on hikes, swim in the beautiful poza, or join other activities that are happening within Sunseed. 
While you are here you will:
- Experience community life
- Choose a department & volunteer. Right now, we're looking for help in the drylands, the organic gardens, the eco-maintenance team, and the sustainable living department.
- Participate in 1-2 workshops per week (Degrowth, Facilitation Techniques, Seed collecting in the drylands, Fermentation, painting with traditional materials, and more)

Sample Daily routine (Mon-Fri, as you have weekends off):
9:00: Breakfast
9:30: Morning circle
10:00-13:00: Working with the department teams
13:00-14:00: Break 
14:00: Lunch
15:00-17:00: siesta
17:00-19:30: work with the departmental teams
20:30: Dinner 

Other useful information to know
We ask for a commitment of at least two weeks, although a full month is preferably both for your experience and for the community as a whole. 
 - You will be sleeping in a dorm with other volunteers.
 - Off-grid living, so we are dependent on the sun for hot showers and electricity. No flushing toilets - we use dry compost toilets. 
 - You'll be part of a community, which means that we ask you to participate in the cleaning and cooking weekly rota, take responsibility for your actions and words, use non-violent communication, respect each other's views, etc
 - Vegetarian project (no meat or fish on-site)
 - No-chemical policy (please don't bring any cosmetics / toothpaste / shampoo etc that is not fully biodegradable. We provide natural shampoo, soap and toothpaste)
 - Weather: we are in a semi-arid environment so be prepared for strong Spanish sun and cold winters in the valley!

Sunseed has recently taken a step towards adapting to inflation, playing a part in creating social justice and increasing the diversity of those who are able to volunteer here. By increasing the daily price and offering a range of rates, people who have more abundant resources are encouraged to pay more and to contribute to our new scholarship places, as an act of altruism and generosity. If you feel called to volunteer and the price is above what you can genuinely pay, feel free to get in touch.
These changes will take effect in May. Previous bookings will not be affected.
 - Cost: 18 euros per person per dayminimum. (includes all food and accommodation - this is to help us cover the running costs of the project, see below information on 'What does my contribution cover'). 
- If you can afford it and you would like to support our project we invite you to pay the new rates of 25 or 35 euros per day. 

During the summer we will have arrival dates every 2 weeks, make sure you are able to arrive at one of these dates.
Arrival dates: 
Tuesday 2nd July
Tuesday 16th July
Tuesday 30th July
Tuesday 13th August
Tuesday 27th August
Tuesday 10th September

What does my contribution cover?


From Monday to Friday we serve three vegetarian meals a day plus snacks. Food on the weekends is self-organised with the use of our supplies. 15-20% of the food comes from our gardens. The rest is bought from local farmers and regional ecological producers.


Our team offer a range of activities depending on the departments' needs. You can get involved with gardening, eco-maintenance, drylands management and more. You can also take on a personal project if you have a specific skill.


Your payment covers accommodation in our dormitory, clean bed sheets, the use of natural cosmetics and administration costs. Our houses are maintained in the traditional Andalucian style.


To provide an educational experience for visitors from around the world we have many hidden costs - rent, insurance, taxes, website hosting, phones, internet, car maintenance, staff reimbursement and more. Your contribution will help us to continue running Sunseed.
