I am passionate about locally grown produce and sustainability with lots of knowledge in the area. I have some small properties in Portugal that can benefit from gardening, ecological, general maintenance and potentially eco-building work.
Help with Eco project
The area is traditional and on the edge of a national park. I can show you around and lend a bike to help visit places of interest. There are many walking paths and bike trails. The area is almost famous for its caves (there are literally kilometres of these, although only a small portion has been explored). With the work, I can pass on knowledge around organic growing and sustainability, if you are interested in those areas.
Help is needed to maintain and develop the garden areas, which have vegetables, nut trees and fruit trees. This involves some weeding, pruning, sowing and harvesting. Also, time permitting, some help is needed for building and decoration , with a focus on painting, bricklaying, carpentry and internal fitting.
Room, private, in house, if preferred can also supply tent.
Freshly grown food that you harvest yourself can be provided along with healthy staples like bread, rice and pasta. There is also nearby shops for any additional food you require.
There is the possibility to visit local cafes and attractions in the town or to discover the national park, which holds surprises even for people living here for years. Closeby is the international pilgrimage site of Fatima, with link-paths to the Camino de Santiago.
