  • Description


    I need help on the big farm (4,5 ha) with a big house and a permaculture garden from October and in the following months of this year.
    With the parmaculture garden and the natural surroundings, we are working very often outdoor. I could teach interested helpers how is working permaculture. This is also the reason why I am looking for someone who could stay for longer term. My plan: an other permaculture project, to make better a water Biotop and to plant more fruit trees.
    My farm Is near the beaches Salema and Boca do Rio, Algarve, outside of Budens in the Parc Natural. It's an amazing place
    ( quiet, millions stars in the night) for people who enjoy nature and walking.
    I have 3 dogs, twice a day they go on a walk, also to the beach.
    Landscape: Hills with hedges and trees. I try to conserve different habitats for insects etc.
    The food is mostely vegetarian or vegan.
    Rooms: one apartment and a double room.
    One big bathroom and a lot of options to relax near the house.
    The helpers have to work every day four hours, the best in morning, the weekend is free, they cook than normaly for themselves.
    For lunch I normaly cook vegetarian or vegan.
    The Intermarché, the post office with medical center are in Budens (3.5 km).
    Some beaches are available by walk, others in Raposeira or Sagres by bus.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The helper(s) should stay and help on the Quinta one or two full week ( Mo-Fri). It' s important for me that they accept the rules of the house( for instante not to spend to much water in summer), that they work with concentration and that they help also in the kitchen.

    Contact me by viber(sms) , e-mail or telephone.

    My hobbies are: working outdoor, nature studies, spend time with my dogs.
