    Description

    Hi

    I am Eric, I am a French man that have traveled the world from Amazonas jungle to the high seas. A few months ago I walked the Portugiese Camino thru Portugal. At the very north of Portugal I walked past a over grown plot of land with a old mill on and a river going close by. It was over grown and abandoned for 60 years. I feel in love with the land and found a very strong energy from it. I completed my Camino and came back and bought the plot of land. I want to build a special place to recharge peoples souls. Now I have cleared the the plot of most of the trees and taken out all the dirt. next step is to start with the roof and then the interior. I also want to make a big garden for juices.

  • Help

    Help

    The help will be involving lending a hand round the property. Like diging and moving soil. It also can include tasks on scaffolding to clean the inside of the old mill. And if you have knowledge of construction and permaculture you would be very interested to share your knowledge. At the moment there's a lot of construction and general help.

    Also I would like to have someone to prepare lunches for us at the mill in the morning and in the afternoon help around the garden when it's up and running. Also we have a great place to practice 🧘‍♂️!!!

    I live in a house about 10 min drive from my project. In the house there is a big kitchen and a patio with a nice view.

    I have a private room&bathroom and a room with 2 beds!!
    We will go to Spain on a weekly basis and make a big shop, So if you have anything special you want we can pick it up then. There is also a supermarket just down the road.

    I will provide food for breakfast. For lunch we go back to the house or have them at the mill. Dinners we will take turns making at the house.
