    Description

    I am a single mother with a child of 3 year. We started or project in 2019 on or farm in Portugal, Monsanto. We live now almost 3 year off grid and have or own solar system to provide electricity for the house and work space.
    We try to grow or own food and animals to make nice food and presevations for winter times. We have also alot of lovely animals that love attention, walks... We also want to make natural houses and many other eco projects. We have a little forest and work with wood to make furniture and lots of other stuff. We have accomodation like a caravan or places to put a tent. As this is a big mission to do alone and with a child we would be happy to have some helping hands. We now are building on a space to make a nice camping space with bar/shop where we can sell our own products.
    I would prefer people who want to stay for a longer time and integrate in the life and comunity but all helping hands are welcom. I love music and art and love to go for a walk with my horse who is aswel my best friend.
