  • Description

    Description

    I live in a fertile and beautiful region.
    Here it grows lots of fruit and a lot of ceramics are made.
    I'm about 17 or 18 km from Praia do Norte, next to Nazaré, where there are giant waves...
    The first caravels were built in Alfeizerão, and this was the first sheltered and safe seaport north of Lisbon until the end of the 18th century.
    The river silted up, the sea retreated and today it is about 4 km away, on the beach of S. Martinho do Porto.
    I am artisan. I work with wood, cane, paper, binding, recycling and yarns and fabrics.
    This house has been uninhabited for some years. I'm rehabilitating it and reactivating the workshop.
    I already have a small vegetable-garden, I continue to repair and tidy the house and I am already able to do some crafts.
    And I need help. Help for the house, the garden, the atelier and the digital marketing that I'm trying to get up and running.
    Right now I need urgently to prepare a small vegetable garden for planting.
    So, for that, I need you. Do you want to come?

    Moro numa região fértil e bonita.
    Numa região onde se cultiva muita fruta e se faz muita cerâmica.
    Estou a uns 17 ou 18 Km da Praia do Norte, junto à Nazaré, onde há as ondas gigantes...
    Aqui foram construídas as primeiras caravelas, e este era o primeiro porto de mar abrigado e seguro a norte de Lisboa até ao final do século XVIII.
    O rio assoreou, o mar recuou e hoje está a cerca de 4 km, na praia de S. Martinho do Porto.
    Eu sou artesã. Trabalho com madeira, cana, papel, encadernação, reciclagem e fios e tecidos.
    Esta casa esteve desabitada durante alguns anos. Estou a reabilitá-la e a reativar a oficina.
    Tenho já um pequeno quintal, continuo a reparar e a arrumar a casa e já estou a conseguir fazer um pouco de artesanato.
    E preciso de ajuda. Ajuda para a casa, para a horta, para o artesanato e para o marketing digital que estou a tentar conseguir pôr a funcionar.
    Neste momento, preciso urgentemente de preparar uma pequena horta para plantio.
    Por isso, para isso, preciso de ti. Queres vir até cá?
