We are looking for a couple of enthusiastic and curious students to lay out and plant a number of patches with medicinal and culinary herbs in the northern Spanish “Donkey Paradise”. This project has several aims, namely:

1      for use by the volunteers working there

2      as enrichment for the donkeys` diets

3      as enrichment for the paths of the terrain

4      for educative purposes, such as rousing interest in visiting families

5      to attract bees and butterflies

6      for everybody´s enjoyment of the smells and colours

7      for selling  if wanted

Each of the herbs should be planted  in a place – sun, soil – that fits its requirements.

The number of visitors to El Paraíso is growing. People enjoy to be in contact with the free roaming younger donkeys, but also with the landscape and nature. The herb enrichment project aims at raising the attraction of the place even more. At the same time it might have an educative function.

The trainees should be involved in the lay out of the herb patches and the right choice of herbs. They are expected to work independently.

Some experience in growing plants and herbs is appreciated. But openness to learning and enthusiasm for the task will always be appreciated even more!

The sanctuary is a non-profit organization run by volunteers. At the moment they take care of 28 donkeys, 3 horses, 2 ponies and a wild boar. It is situated in Asturias, Spain, outside a small village near the Picos de Europa.
