Welcome! My name is Olivia, I'm a big passionate of nature. I live in Vila Nova de Milfontes in Alentejo - sunny & slow South of Portugal. I've been a professional athlete in Stand Up Paddling for 10 years.
I need your help for some doggysitting : Léo, Layka and Pata need good care and good compagny when I go away for the competitions. Léo is a Tcheque Wolf dog, Layka is a Belgian Shepherd Malinois and Pata is a Rafel Alentejano. They are all three adorable and love to give and receive love <3
I also need your help to feed the ducks, to water the permaculture and the 115 trees! There are many fruit trees. The trees are watered once a week from April to November, with an ecological irrigation system called "Oyas" which saves water. The ducks are giving eggs everyday, you will enjoy it!
The land is 4000 square meters in total.
The water from the well is connected to the shower and dishes. It's a non-drinking water. Drinking water is available at the fishermen’s harbor (5min by car), we go there to fill cans.
We use dry toilets to save water as much as possible.
We use only ecological & natural products for te shower and dishes: natural soap, shampoo, ect... (marseille soap, baking soda, white vinagre and black soap) as the plants are watered with the used water.

My dogs Leo, Layka & Pata need good campagny while I am traveling for competitions and trainings.
The ducks also love the good compagny, and they give eggs everyday.
The permaculture veggies garden and fruits trees need to be watered once the week.
