Hello workawayers and travellers of the world,
our farm is situated South Portugal, close to the border between Alentejo and Algarve. Because we are in between two beautiful landscapes they collide and the diversity is enormous. We have Oak trees, Medronho, Willow, Eucalyptus, Fruit trees and a diverse flora of shrubs and bushes. We also host a number of wild animals such as wild deer, foxes, mongoose and many birds.
At the moment we are looking for ongoing people to share the work we have as Margarida (my wife) is pregnant. We recently opened our project and need help with preparing workshops, making food, taking care of the animals, house sitting, land clearing, making wood, and so on...
To have a look at our project here is the Facebook page:
We live close to Saboia, Odemira and it`s a bit of the grid. But we do have all you might need: water, electricity, internet, and all the commodities a house needs. For accommodation we have a apartment attached to the house with kitchen and living room, bedroom and bathroom.
We live with animals and among them are: dogs and cats who live inside the house. Three cats and 3 dogs, all very friendly. Chickens and goats. We are really animal friendly, but we find it hard to host vegans, as we are omnivorous and eat a little bit of everything.
We hope to hear from you :)
Margarida and Fabian
