    Do you love nature, and want to learn and feel how is it to live a self sustainable life? Are you independent (car, van) and do you want to help us 15 hrs the week in exchange for a nice place to stay with lots of free time?!
    We are a german - dutch couple (40 and 45 years young ;) and since spring 2018 we live on our wonderfull 12ha piece of land in the Algarve. 30 minutes by car to the south coast (Lagos) and 30 min to the westcoast (Aljezur). A quiet place with a huge lake surrounded by its hills . We live a basic life here, off grid.
    We are develloping our environnement where nature and biodiversity play an important role. To advance our project we are looking for motivated independent person(s) who will help ánd learn with us in our permaculture garden, planting and maintenance of (fruit)trees, making of steps, paths, creations , re-use, etc etc..we would love to welcome you.
    We are looking for people who help us max.15 hrs the week in exchange of staying in an independant way on our land. We have already one friend living and helping us untill winter. An outdoor kitchen and shower is available and of course our amazing lake to swim and refresh!
    The idea is that you will have to take care of your own food and cookings. You must like it to spend time alone and be autonome. ideal for us is a couple or two friends. We both have also part time jobs and arent always there.. We have a basic caravan or a van available to sleep in or you can come with your own van or tent!

    You will have a lot of free time to relax and enjoy the nice evironnement, lake, mountains, beaches.. We advice that you come with your own means of transport.
