  • Description


    Having lived in other countries, I give value to intercultural exchanges. Nevertheless, the call of my native land is strong and I always come back to Azores, these lovely islands in the middle of the Atlantic. Come from a family of farmers, so I do like to keep too my own vegetables garden and try to live with the less waste possible. My goal now is to build and keep a proper gardening space.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Azores is a place full of things to discover. Nobody leaves here without having a fulfilling cultural exchange and the person that comes just be open to learn and exchange. As I like languages, it is great to have someone to practice or even to learn a new language. In return, as a former Portuguese teacher, you can learn it with me. As for the tasks, I consider myself a newbie in farmer, I pay attention to older generations knowledge on how things were done but also keep looking for new advancements. I can share diverse cultural, historic and anthropological aspects of the place I live and I am interested of knowing something of the place you come from.

  • Help


    It would be much appreciated to host someone who likes gardening to help me creating a proper gardening space. Most of the work is only to keep the space clean, so weeding for a couple of hours per day is only you will have to do. This time is very flexible and you'll have plenty of time to explore the island.
