  • Description


    I’m 59 years young and living my dream on my small land since one year - in the Alto Alentejo. I’m very close to my children and grandchildren too, because they are a big part of my live. Also in my team there is an old friendly guardian dog and two mouse hunters.

    I want to create a self sustainable land , planting lots of trees to bring live and habitats again to the land for all beings.

    UPDATE I’m also searching a land sitter during December. Feeding the cat’s and taking care about the garden and the dog.

    There are many projects and ideas, like extending the garden, planting trees, some woodworking constructions, harvesting the olives and a lot more.

    I’m happy about everyone who feels connected to my project, who is enthusiastic about just enjoying the colours, nature, smellings or the birds. Everyone who want to share a “singing heart” , no matter if you’re alone, a couple or a family :)

    I’m not searching for professional hands, for me it’s more important that you’re interested and enthusiastic about living off the grid and with nature. To share cooking, making music together, sharing creative ideas , sharing conversations and working together with joy.
