We are a growing family here in the Algarve, we are situated 7km driving from the south coast in the outskirts of a village called Barao de Sao Miguel.
We are a Welsh and German mash up of friendly people with a 18 month old son and another baby arriving in November.
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
I have some years of experience in gardening and have a working knowledge of permaculture gardening, my partner is a professionally trained stone mason and an all around extremely handy person and we are eager to share our knowledge and understanding in these areas.
We live here off grid and are working on a fully self-sustainable life, in order for this to work out we need a kick start of help for a few projects.
We have already a garden set up but room for expansion, we are wanting to start working on an exciting aquaponic project for which we definitely require help, we also would love to have help in finishing some aspects of our self built house, as well as general helpful tasks; cleaning and fire wood collecting.
We have here a T3 campervan that has been turned into a beautiful cosy bedroom space, we have a lovely sized caravan also guest ready and we have plenty of space for tents if that's more your thing! As we are off grid and rely on solar power to power our house, we have not so much electricity available in the evening times, this also means that our accommodation is without power so a torch would be necessary, but of course we have enough energy to charge phones and other personal electronic items in the day time.
Regarding food we are a family of meat eaters but we eat also very often vegetarian, 3 meals a day is a given, as well as snacks whenever required. We have a very hungry growing boy so we are often eating meals with lots of veggies and always some form of carbohydrate, I'm not by any means a 5 star chef however I can produce tasty wholesome foods.. Excellent fuel for a good days work! :)
We have here bicycles available for use, the local village is 25 minutes walking away where there is 2 bars and 2 mini markets available, otherwise there are many places not so far away where social events are happening every week, the beach is just a short distance away and this area is particularly nice for hiking around the coast.
