    Description

    I am an easy going 55 yr old Welsh lady, a mother and grandmother, with a large global family, who has loved traveling and working herself around the world over the last 15 yrs.
    I love to learn new things and love anything creative, innovative and unique Art and architecture. I am currently writting a childrens book surrounding our global issues, with my grandchildren and the children of a Zambian school i was a volunteer teacher at as central characters (so anyone with illustration skills is very welcome 😁) I also love to read and shall over time fill spaces with peacefull reading areas.
    My next project as a meditater, therapist and yoga teacher, has a great deal of meaning to me - to turn a beautiful slice of mountain with a sea view in the Algarve, Portugal, into a small eco yoga and meditation retreat, aimed in particular for low wage families and teenagers with depression/anxiety.
    I am seeking a native Portugese person with skills in permaculture to work just 2.5 hrs 5 days a week (must speak English), but who wants to stay long term.
    A global family of volunteers with Carpentry skills and or permaculture skills are the only volunteers i require at present time (Feb/March start).
    The land currently has two containers, with one being a livable space with small kitchen and table. It would be helpful if the volunteer had his/her own tent/van.
    There is a toilet, sink and shower housed next to the container.
    Electricity and water is used, but i shall be turning off electricity when solar panels are put in place.
    The water is currently on a timer to water the lands trees which consist of: figs, grapes, carob, almond, lemon, apples and pears, olive and a walnut.
    This is a quiet peaceful space, with a magnificent wide open view of the sea 7 kms away, with another mountain to its left. There are also a few surrounding neigbours and a cafe/restaurant not far, so no one will feel isolated. Also Faro or Ohlio are only about 7kms away also, so near shops, beach, airport etc.
    I love to meet new people, so am greatly looking forward to meeting like minded people who desire to live a peaceful harmonious life, and helping others to find their peace.💚
