  • Description


    Hello my name is Gerke. I’m 33 years old and come from the Netherlands. I live since two years in Portugal and started a permaculture project. Terraces, ponds and swales have been made and we planted hundreds of trees and bushes. We got bees and the first structures are arising. We have a composttoilet and a cold shower at the moment.

    Currently we are building on the walls from clay for my house.

    You work 5 hours approximately and all meals are provided. You will sleep in a tent or bring your own camper. Plenty of space. There is a bus connection to Santiago do Cacem, Sines & Grandola. But I can take you as well as I go every morning to Santiago de Cacem for work. In days off we go to the beach or places around.

    I prefer people who want to stay for a week.
