We are a couple in our early 40's, we have 5 acres of land in central Portugal. We are always grateful for some help as there are a lot of projects and the constant maintenance required. Our land is a terraced valley, with a stream at the bottom and in the middle of nature. At the moment having health issues with parents and need some extra help while 1 of us is away.

Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Eco Projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Its a chance to live in Portugal as part of a small community, learn the language and be emerged in the culture of a small village. You can learn a lot about living off grid and the challenges that can bring.
Would suit individuals or couples, no special skills needed, except a bit of enthusiasm and a sense of fun.
Helping out with some big projects and also general day to day life - building, land clearing, animals, the garden etc Also everyone helps out with cooking, dishes etc
Would be best at this time of year if you have your own van, its cold and frosty! When its warmer a tent will be provided in you own little private piece of land, with inflatable mattress, pillows etc.
We have a compost toilet and solar shower (summer) indoor shower when its too cold!
Food will be provided, a lot from our own garden and drinks (not alcohol) happy for you to drink just not paying for it lol! But you can wake up every morning in the middle of nature, in our peaceful valley.
