    Description

    General maintenance, gardening for an off-grid home near the beaches. Looking to host monthly art collective gatherings so would like to get the place nice and keep it that way as well :) **If you have your own camper/van that is a big plus.**

    Immediate work needed:
    - Creating a pergola/roof to catch rain water and shield water tanks from direct sunlight
    - Clearing the land and prep for greenhouse construction
    - maybe cooking depending on how many people arrive

    Some typical work:
    - Clearing and cleaning up outdoor communal space(s)
    - Gardening
    - Perhaps greenhouse construction

    If you're interested please contact me with your EXACT dates (2 weeks minimum) you have in mind so I can stay organized. Know that if you say yes I take steps to try and make your stay as enjoyable as possible: favorite food/drinks, laundry, regular beach trips, etc so please be sure you can make it so as not to make this preparation for nothing. Unfortunately, I need to put this in writing now.

    All the best to you in all that you do!

    ** Please 1) make sure you've read this section 2) are positive you can come as each cancellation means I've said no to someone else that could have come and it's time wasted 3) include the word "applesauce" in your message so I know you've read this. It's a pretty short read :)**

    In Spring of 2019 I will need help clearing land of flammable and dead plants around the geodesic dome. If things go well there will be plenty of gardening to do as well.

    Camping: tents and air mattresses - perhaps cots too. Hopefully covered outdoor bedding options soon too :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I am super close to the western and southern coasts of Portugal: surf, stand up paddling, kite surfing, swimming, hiking, climbing. I can drop you off at/pick you up from the beach so not too much need for hitchhiking.
