    My name is Tim, I'm almost 35, graduated as a social worker and decided to try a different approach to life.
    Living in Portugal for five years now, staying in a house on friends' farm, I couldn't have guessed how this 'different approach' would turn out to be like. So many things I didn't consider! Amazingly, the things I did consider (keywords: organic, low impact, sustainable,...) are actually happening to a large degree: food from the land, solar and hydro, local consumption... And last but not least: I finally found myself a little spot in paradise, right nextdoors from where I live now. The workload is starting to look a bit heavy, especially with the new property on top. The land is completely overgrown and will need cleaning. To be able to make time for this, I need to bring some help in.
    I'm keeping a large vegetable garden and eating vegetables only from my garden for four years now. I now started to distribute overproduction to local markets and also trying to set up a microbusiness in plants for the veggie-garden. This is basically what I would like help with and where I believe I can pass on some of my experience.
    If you want to know what is involved in 'trying a different approach', or at least the way I went about it and at least to the point where I got now, I'd be happy to have you! I'm living with two dogs, a cat and three chicken, but possibly will get in more living things when I get help and land.
