We are a colourful couple who have travelled extensively, been to Burning man and many burns throughout the world, partyed, owned a restaurant and brought Silent Disco to South Africa. Goetz is a DJ, surfer,SUP addict, wind and kitesurfer and recently Wingfoiler. He owned many nightclubs in Munich back in the 90s. We have slowed down on the rockstar lifestyle and settled on a farm in Portugal.
We have 3 donkeys, 2 cats, a dog, 4 ducks and chickens.
We are currently renovating out buildings as well as managing the garden, paddocks, trees, experimenting and learning with permaculture as we go along.
We are full up with paid positions but have availability for volunteers. I feel its important to provide a fair exchange so volunteers have some nice free time, to actually see their surroundings, so we work from Mon to Friday from 9 till 2 and then Saturday and Sundays off or other flexible hours depending on the surf, weather etc but its basically 25 hours a week.
We want to create an artistic, warm, welcoming space with various accommodation facilities, workshop spaces and be surrounded by enthusiastic people of any age rage we can share, collaborate and exchange ideas.
We would love to invite artists to come and use our space as a canvas to create whimsical, irreverant art in any form alongside the building and in the house, garden and field. If your passion is bees build a beehive, if your passion is art, make an art installation, if you want to try make wine, use the grapes. we are open very much to ideas and collaborations.
Although we are both 50, we relate a lot to alternative younglings. and our aim is to turn our space (Farm of magical) chaos into a vibey, communal funky space that is a fun space for volunteers to hang out, whilst also restoring the main house and outbuildings to eventually accommodate groups for yoga, shibari workshops and eventually restore the big barn into accommodation.
Finishing the donkey track system, training donkeys to do treks, helping with painting and building, starting a beehive, building a duck pond, and whatever else takes your fancy. We love people to have their own ideas and make things, be creative and leave their mark.
We have a few bedrooms in the main house with 2 bathrooms and are currently restoring a cottage for volunteers. We have an off grid project we want to start this Autumn and winter in the summer cottage.
We can offer electricity and water if you have your own campervan which can be parked in the donkey field.
