    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers could practise the English and German language, also see how to live in a organic farm in the country side with Solar Energy PV, Solar Thermal Energy and water irrigation system from our own dam for gardening and daylife use. The next portuguese village is ca. 2 km away. You can meet also a lot of surfers in several beaches, like Zavial, Amado or Casteleijo (all ca. 6 -10 km away from us), also Lagos and Sagres are closed by (ca. 20 minutes driving), a big Yoga and music scene is close by too.

    I would love to develop my organic garden. Also I will need help to maintain my houses with painting and wood work.
    We planted last year 50 almond trees and planning to plant more 100 this winter ! Also the next project will be to build some stairs to the dam, also to build a Fotovolaik System with PV roof tiles, a shadow place for the cheep.

    What else ...

    I run a small solar company since 18 years in the South of Portugal. We are taking care for 7 hectar land with a dam of 3 Mio Liters of water. My goal is to develop the land and especially the organic garden and planting trees.
    I am always happy to receive some know how regarding gardening, I am still a newcomer. There are also many other things to do, like painting, building, repairing, and not to forget a good live in the nature ....
