  • Description

    Description

    We are a portuguese family of four, recently moved to Algarve and we are starting a permaculture project.
    We need help with the kids 23 months old, organic gardenning, natural construction, taking care of the chickens, for five hours a day, and you are free all weekend.
    If you're not into childcare, no problem, there's a lot more to do.
    In October we will be building a porche and a pergola. In the meanwhile we are renovating a caravan to have better accomodation for our volunteers.
    We are in Tojeiro, 3km from Marmelete, 20km from Aljezur, you can go to the beach in your free time and we are 25km from Portimão too.
    We can teach what we know - portuguese language, natural cosmetics and cleaning products, permaculture, worm farming, bio chickens, bee farming, woodworking, cooking, fermenting foods, healing herbs.
    There is a big community in front of our land, you can get there walking 1minute, to meet other workawayers, have a beer, whatever :)

    We need help with the kids 23 months old, caring for the chickens, gardenning, helping in small construction projects, for a few hours a day, and you are free all weekend.
    No special skills required, buut we expect you to be comunicative, kind, an animal and children lover and a pratical simple person.

    Dailly routine:
    We start arround 8 in the morning, we have breakfast and decide what we will be doing.

    The work is feeding the chickens, gardening, general maintenance and looking after the kids, inventing plays or taking walks.

    We both work with our volunteers, so we decide each morning what each one of us will do.

    We work from 9 to 14, the one who cares for the chickens stops at 13 and then gives food and water to the chickens at 18.

    Sometimes we have different tasks that require different routine, but we try to agree with everyone to decide.

    The food is vegetarian, if you are Vegan, we can provide food to your needs.
