I am Canadian that has moved to the Azores and i am creating my self sustainable eco homestead that can always use some help. We are on the island of Faial and have a beautiful ocean front property in a protected forest. We have many fruits growing that need to be preserved, grapes to harvest and winemaking, soap making also weeding is a big part of maintaining the property and many other eco projects too. We are currently building a solar array and have an electric car also.
Come and play with the pineapples, bananas, figs, strawberry guava, prickly pears etc. etc. in the Azores!!

People can learn to be self sustainable and live off of the land, how to survive if the power isn't available, how to grow food without chemicals and how to live life and not just exist or go through the motions of normal life.
Any and all help is welcome from pulling weeds to constructing buildings with locally sourced materials and everything in between. Fruit and vegetable gardening and processing into preserves is a huge help also.
I love to learn new things and meet new people also!
We have a lava stone guest cabin as a private space. We are building an outdoor kitchen and washrooms shortly. We have a wood pizza oven and multiple bbqs available too. There is usually some type of fruit and vegetables available for helpers to enjoy but meats and drinks will at guests expense. Of course we will do pizza night once a week which will be included too.
We are walking distance to the volcanic natural pools and stone beach in Varadouro where you can swim and snorkel in the ocean! Just up the road is Capalinhos volcano which has a very Mars like landscape , a lighthouse to explore and more natural swimming areas too.
