I am a surfer/ artist/ entrepreneur. I have tattoo shops in Portugal and Norway. And also have guest houses on Madeira Island. I am building / renovating some old properties into two eco guest houses where i also plan to organize surf and yoga retreats. I also want to incorparate sustainable and organic farming in it.
My team consists of friends and specialized workers.
There are two houses that will comprise the project. A smaller one that is over 100 years old that will be restored, with two plots of farmable land around it, that already has some fruit trees such as Mangoes, Figs, Lime, Grape Vines. All this land needs to be cleaned and the trees nurtured for. I will create a garden area here as well. With flowers and other fruit trees, and vegetables.
And another house right next to this one that is a bigger traditonal Madeiran house. This is a bigger house which will also have renovation done. But mostly by myself and the volunteers. Such as : Restoring old furniture, painting ,decorating, gardening. Most of the specialized work i will use people that have worked with me before for the plumbing, electricity, mason work, etc. Unless of course the volunteers have these skills as well...
What i need help mostly with is everday chores around the house : cleaning, shopping, cooking, gardening, organizing, restoration, some building , good vibes and inspiration.
