Twice a year, we aim to bring together a group of volunteers over the course of a week to help carry out a variety of tasks and projects here Cortijo Verde. This constitutes an opportunity open to anyone who is interested, available and who has a willingness to collaborate with an open heart. There are occasionally, longer term-term opportunities for volunteering, of up to one calendar month, for individuals with specific skills in permaculture and gardening and who can contribute to the work of Cortijo Verde.
Spending time with the family at Cortijo Verde was a wonderful, nurturing and rewarding experience. Theres something incredibly human and essential about working the land, living simply, and sharing community with beautiful beings.Craig Drummond
Artist in Residence
We are always keen to hear from artists working across a variety of different mediums who may wish to spend time at Cortijo Verde, where they might benefit from one of several annual residencies lasting between one week and a month. Whilst we cannot offer grants per se, we do offer accommodation and studio space from which to create. It is hoped that the work of visiting artists serve to celebrate the ethos of Cortijo Verde and that it in some way benefit the local community.

We are self-supporting in our efforts to maintain a happy, healthy home here on the hill for our animal family. All monies generated by way of retreats, workshops and courses pay for the running of the centre, the care of the animals and further initiatives to protect and nourish the wider environment and community. We are always grateful to receive any help, financial or other, that facilitates our work and helps to create stability for our interspecies family.
