    Description

    Hello, we are a fun loving couple 48/38 years old living in Central Portugal and have a lovely 15 ache Quinta (small holding farm) right on the Rio Mondego. There are 4 houses and a pool currently. We are spending the next 2 years planting trees and vegetables and starting to get some animals. We are working with a permaculture consultant to develop the site in a sustainable way and have grants to plants original species trees. For recreation we chill by the river, ride motorbikes, paddle board or visit the local area. Sometimes there are parties and gatherings down the valley as there are alot of other places with volunteers nearby.

    Planting and watering shrubs, trees, and vegetables. Sharing shopping and cooking. Being here if we are away for security and keeping the dog company. Trimming the grass and keeping the weeds at bay. At this time of year it is mainly looking after and tending the vegetable beds and ensuring the new shrubs have adaquate water.

    Clean out the chicken house once a week, collecting eggs, checking on the goats and feeding them. we also have 3 cats and 2 dogs. we are currently finishing the rennovating of the houses so you will be sharing one house with the owner
