Update: we are currently building a chickenshed for our new friend 'kipje' and renewing our greenhouse and expanding the vegetable garden.
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 (46 & 41) 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 very basic life here, off grid. our shower is the lake, sun heated shower in the garden.
We are developing our environment 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, compost toilet , re-use projects, etc etc..
An outdoor shower is available and of course our amazing lake to swim and refresh.
You have to take care of your own food (buyings) 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 available to sleep in. Most ideal is that you 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..
Its necessary that you have your own car - van.
