Come on over to help us keep the project running!
We are happy to anounce our next WORK-CAMP shaduled from 19th ’till 21st of October 2020. An unforgetable Arts & Nature experience and a good opportunity to get to know our unique and sustainable craft.
This volunteering opportunity was born out of the need to carry out a continuous production where we will share our extensive knowledge in the creation of musical instruments and crafts made from the Agave (Pita) wood. We are looking for motivated people who are keen to help us create our sustainable products, especially SKILLED WOOD-WORKERS or people who want to become that. The main aim is to form a dynamic and communal working group, in which we are all responsible for the daily tasks. We welcome self-initiative and an advanced desire to grow, learn, share and to explore an inovative and sustainable material easy to work with.
The professional craftsman Tim Bernhardt will give an introduction to the various tools, the responsable zero waste manufacturing methods, and natural oil treatments that he uses in his unique craft. 
In order to maintain the infrastructure of our self-suficiant house and the different project sites WE NEED PEOPLE WITH SKILLS IN: Gardening, Cooking, Marketing-, planing- and funding strategy, social media, film-making & photography, web-design, online sales, etc…
Contact us for more information and to receive our motivation letter to register.
Erasmus & other Funding
From time to time, we accept volunteers who are able to stay for a period of longer than just one week. As we are an official institution, the Erasmus or other programs can be your solution to achieve some funding. For general information, a good place to start is the webpage of the European Commission.

We are more than happy to see how Agave wood is recieving more and more of the attention it deserves and if you also have one or another idea in mind, it would be a pleasure to help you out with your project!
For the last 25 years we have been working in a province where the Agave plant has become a symbol of the region and so far it seems that we are the only providers of Agave wood throughout Europe. Since we have the necessary authorization to collect, in the last years we have been able to store a reasonable amount of raw material, ready to be used.
Due to our many years of experience, we make sure to select and harvest the wood at its proper time, which allows us to offer a high quality material. Its cost goes up due to the fact that it is necessary to carry out the collection by hand and carry the trunks on the shoulder to the transport vehicle, apart from that it depends on the diameter and the lenghts that you need.
If you do not want to buy the material or just part of it, one possibility could be to get involved in one of our collection activities, an exchange for people who want to help us in the collection in exchange for some trunks and experience on how to find your own quality raw material.

Los Molinos del Rio Aguas is just a small Andalusian village in the middle of the only desert in Europe. Not too many people have the chance to pass by and learn about the possibilities of the agave. Help us to spread the word about this wonderful plant and see how you can support us to achieve our vision.
