    Hi, I´m Keir I grow organic vegetables with my friend Dani in a historic walled garden.

    I live with my partner, Ana, and our 9 year old daughter, Nur, on the other side of the village from the garden. We have a mostly vegetarian diet but eat fish once or twice a week. As you can imagine there is no shortage of organic veg in our house. We would like to share our meals with you and hope you will cook once or twice a week and help to tidy up after meals. Our house is right next to the River Guadiana where you can swim at high tide, with views of Portugal to the West and the river mouth to the South.

    We started in 2014 and have been selling boxes of mixed veg since then. All our produce is sold locally. We don´t use chemical insecticides, all weeds are dealt with mechanically (with tools, by hand or by occultation) and we don´t use chemical fertilisers, just animal manure, compost and seaweed.

    I love working outside, with nature, getting my hands dirty, hearing the birds sing.

    Your room is in the basement (with windows). We´ll share the livingroom and kitchen.

    Helping in the garden:

    The help is quite physically demanding. It often involves heavy lifting, bending down to weed or harvest, shoveling manure or compost, pushing wheel barrows etc. We´ll be outside. The sun is very strong here from May to September.

    Getting to Ayamonte:

    Our nearest airport is in Faro, Portugal. From there you can get a bus to Faro train station then the train to Vila Real do Santo Antonio. From there it´s a 10 min walk to the ferry terminal. The ferry across el Rio Guadiana takes 15 mins.

    From Spain: You can catch a bus to Ayamonte from Huelva, Sevilla and even Madrid.

    Come and help us grow heathy organic food. You will mostly be helping us with the normal garden tasks like preparing beds, sowing, planting, weeding and making compost. We´re keen to share knowledge and techniques and hope to learn as much from you as you will learn from us. From August til November we´ll be mostly preparing beds, sowing and planting in order to have plenty of veggies to sell throughout the winter.

    In your free time you can walk, run, cycle or catch the bus to the beach, 3km, explore the town of Ayamonte or catch the ferry across the river to Vila Real in Portugal. At the weekend we like to walk in the countryside or visit beautiful villages and beaches in Spain and Portugal. You are welcome to come along. Ayamonte is also a great place to do kite surfing. You can get classes or rent equipment in the summer.
