  • Description

    Description

    We are a small family of 4 who moved to the Algarve 3 yrs ago. We have completed renovating our house, and are now trying to work towards creating a hemp farm. We are situated in the beautiful countryside, 20 mins drive to Alvor or Portimao, 25 mins to Lagos. We are surrounded by carob, olive, almond, fig and many more fruit trees. Our home has a lovely view up to the hills of Monchique.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will learn a traditional portuguese custom of collecting carobs. Some, like myself, find this to be a very calming and relaxing experience working with directly with nature.

    Help

    I am looking for someone to help collect my remaining carobs, gardening, tidying of land, and organising fire wood. This would be for 3 hrs a day, 5 days a week. This involves knocking the carobs to the ground, and then collecting them. Cutting hedge, grass, weeding, cleaning up dead leaves etc.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Accommodation offered is a small 2 berth caravan, with shower & toilet, cooker, fridge etc. I will supply you with breakfast in the caravan, so you can get up and start work as it suits you ( I recommend early morning to beat the heat of the day). I would also provide either lunch or dinner. We are meat eaters, but I would be happy to make vegetarian soup for lunch etc.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a bus stop 5 mins walk away, and a small village approximately 15 mins walk away. One of the most popular restaurants in the Algarve, 'Solar do Farelo', is also within walking distance.

    As mentioned previously Alvor, Portimao and Lagos are nearby. They all have beautiful individual characteristics, night life, and of course stunning sandy beaches!

    I am new to the volunteering world, so I will look forward hearing about other experiences and/or suggestions.
