Volunteering

Come on over to help us keep the project running!
To continue with our ongoing workload, once in a while we invite volunteers to help us maintain the infrastructure and the different project sites like the gardens, the agave plantation and the project houses. During this time, you will also learn a lot about the agave, its wood and the potential for its integral usage. It’s a great opportunity to embed yourself into the project and get to know the life in the eco-village.

Erasmus & other Funding
From time to time, we accept volunteers who are able to stay and contribute to our project for a period of longer than just one week. As we are an official institution, the Erasmus or other program can be your solution to achieve some funding. For general information, a good place to start is the webpage of the European Commission.

We especially need volunteers with certain skills and experience in:
Public Relations
Carpentry
Gardening
House building

If you are interested, please drop us a line to receive an application form and the list of Basic Agreements.

Order some desert Wood

If you are curious about the wood from the desert and you want to start experimenting without coming along to join us, we are happy to help you out with your desire and send some wood over to you! Just drop us a line with an approximate idea of what you would like to do and what you would need.

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.

Get the ‘Spread the Word Package’

You want to have your own Agave-School in your pocket? Get our ‘Spread the Word Package’ and grow happiness in your surroundings. One of the best ways to support our project is just talking about it and thus spreading the message. The best way to do this is having some little surprises in your pockets – a great way to capture the people’s attention.

The package includes:
– 12 Pocket Villages (our messengers)
– 20 Sticker (5 Extra Sticker = 1€)
– 20 (or more) Agave baby-plants
– Flyer

Price: 50 Euros

Drop us a line if you are interested, we will be happy to hear from you!

Download and print flyers

Help us spread the word by printing out our flyers. Distribute them to friends or post them on random walls in your town, your university, or the common playground of your kids. Get in touch and we’ll send the up to date flyer to you via e-mail.

Donate

We are always happy to receive musical donations in case you have any instrument, amplifier or even a loop-station (whoop!) in your basement! Of course, financial support, tools or other useful stuff is also welcome at any time!
