  • Description

    Description

    I have a small farm house in southern Portugal, located 20km from Faro and the ocean.
    The guest house that can sleep up to four and there's a caravan which can sleep two.

    There are 2 hectares of rustic land on sloped terrain with lots of old carob trees. I can always use a hand with general maintenance but also would like to start building a swale system this fall and start mulching the trees, plant fruit trees and finish my Geodesic Greenhouse.

    There may also be some smaller construction projects around the house that I could use help with should you have any experience in building / eco building / carpentry etc.

    Occasional trips to town, gym, markets or the beach can be arranged if you don't travel by van.


    I speak English, German and Dutch and basic Portuguese.


    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    I would like to extend our fruit and vegetable garden using permaculture design principles so it would be great if you're familiar with or interested in permaculture . There are also other tasks that I could use help with e.g: building furniture from old wood, shaping a pump track, water retention projects, swimming pond etc.

    Daily tasks are pretty flexible depending on what you can and would like to do.
