Hello, i am Paulo and i am living in a abandoned village in the centre of Portugal.. There is only 2 people living permanently in here... This valley was a old roman villa where they used to make olive oil and wine exploration... Nowdays its full with olive, oak, corkoak and fig trees... Since i moved i had the vision to make a ecovillage in this place, therefore i need help with the diferent projects to come... keep on building clay infrastructures, compost toilet, make swales in the land wich will mean a lot oif digging through the year, cleaning the land, making gardens and transforming(clean the land and trees) the landscape..
as it was a roman villa it has ancient roman roas and still standing roman bridge over the small river that passes close to the village... It has beautifull hicking trails and its full of wild medicinal and eatable plants...
This is situated close to Tomar (Templar City), and also to Fátima (santuary, pilgrimige cristian place) and also to other beautifull places....

I am looking for people that would like to live for sometime in nature, in a natural, susteinable and ecofriendly way... I look for buiders (with or without experience), gardeners(w or wout exp), also, people that like to help with simple tasks like: cleaning the house , getting and spliting wood, cooking, cleaning the land, etc..
