    Description

    This is a little organic self-sufficient farm with big veggie and fruit garden, field, donkeys, goats, pigs, chicken, doves, ducks, dogs and cats; solar-energy and autonomy.
    We constantly welcome helpers for all kinds of agriculture work.

    IN THIS TIME OF THE YEAR WE SPECIALLY NEED PEOPLE WITH KNWOLEDGE OF CONSTRUCTION AND WOOD WORK. 2 ROOMS IN A CLAY-HOUSE NEED TO BE PLASTERED.

    Above this you will know portuguese cooking and can learn many aspects of organic farming and using or conserving all fruit and vegetables of garden and field.
    We have a balance diet including meat and fish, if vegeterians want they can do their own meals.

    Work is mostly 4 hours a day, 6 days a week, and accomodation will be in a cozy caravan. In the winter people have to be strong to deal with simple circumstances. Electricity is based on solar, then when there is less sun there will not always be enough water for daily showers or maybe missing of light. bring torch!

    The farm sits between two beautiful villages in 3 to 4km distance; the next town is lagos and there is a bus going to the villages.

    Lagos offers always cultural-events: expositions, music, theatre.. and has as well nice beaches. the atlantic-coast is about 15km away. There is also a small lake for swimming nearby.

    You'll enjoy everything in the farm!
