We are a german family with 2 kids ( 2 and 7 years old ), 3 dogs and 2 cats are with us as well. We are living since one year in this beautiful place called vegan hills and building up our new home or maybe its better to say: our new base, as we love to travel.
We live vegan of course and we ask you not to bring animal products to the land. ( Also not as dogfood if you want to bring a dog )
But you don´t have to be vegan as well :)
Our place here is really beautiful, but its very simple and off-grid. Sometimes chaotic ;)
We have no luxus, but we have everything we need. We have a washing machine, an outdoor shower with hot water, compost toilets and we have electricity and wifi.
In the next months, specially May, June and July we need help with building up our wooden house, this means we need handi people with knowledge about building, working with wood and strength. Also really important for us is, that our helpers can work independently, because we are not at home the whole day or have also other things to do, taking care of the kids, working on the computer...
but we need also help with other tasks.
If you want to visit us, please let us know how do you want to stay, at the moment we have only tents here and we prefer helpers with their own van ( huge campers like over 7 meters could be problematic because our road is dirttrack ;)
We love to go to pizzapartys, having a fire, drinking a beer ( or more ) and sitting together. Unfortunately its not possible for us to go to the beaches often and its also not possible to drive our helpers around, sorry :( And sometimes we simply tired in the evening and sleep early ;)
As we have 2 kids, of course families are welcome :)
Help with Eco project
We can learn from each other, we are no experts in building with wood, gardening ( permaculture ) or other things. we believe in that everybody has his own experiences and knowledges we all can benefit from.
If you want to learn german, you learn it with us and our kids, our kids are unschoolers.
You will see how it is to live offgrid as a small family.
- helping with building the house, you should have experience with woodwork
- cutting trees, collecting wood, you need strength
- watering the garden, mulching, collecting seeds, making terrasses. If you have experience with this, nice, but we do not expect that. We do not cut trees, plants or anything else, it is okay everything grows like it grows ;)
- maintenance tasks like finishing our stairs, cutting wood, smaller things, repairing
- have a look after the kids, reading with the older one, going for walks or sometimes just have an eye on them :)
- tidy up and sort our stuff, cleaning, ...
We do not need help with Cooking, if you like to cook for everybody its really nice, but it counts not as working hours.
german, english, Little spanish and hopefully little portuguese soon
Breakfast: Everybody can help themself, we have bread, hummus, spread, oats and oatdrink.
Lunch: I prepare the lunch and everybody is welcome to eat with us, if it doesnt fit in your plans, you can eat also later, no problem :)
Dinner: I prepare dinner, sometimes this are leftovers from lunchtime. Sometimes like the breakfast, sometimes I cook again, depends little bit on the time I have.
At the moment we can provide only tents. Of course fully equiped, you don’t need to bring your own stuff. We also have space if you travel in your own van.
In your freetime you can go to the beautiful beaches or do a hike at the wonderful Rota Vicentina.
You also can visit Lagos or other nice places in the algarve region.
If you have a drivers lisence you can use our car.
