We live in the countryside 10km from the coast in central Portugal and about 15km south of Aveiro. We are trying to live a sustainable life and would like to become 100% independent. We live in a large house with a large garden (2100m2) which is mostly consists of subtropical fruit forest. We also have a vedgetable garden and try to eat as many wild plants as possible. Our diet is mainly vegetarian/macrobiotic style going into raw-vegan food but also with some, very few animal proteins. We have dogs, cats and ducks and 3 children under 11 yrs. old. Until now we have had mostly german-speaking woofers here that have helped my children learn to speak some german. Being a german or portuguese speaker is, by no means a must, but, it is easier on the children. Families are also welcomed here. It's so great to see the children playing together! The children usually enjoy themselves in the garden and in the summer we go to the beach or to a river swimming about once a day. We have a very dynamic family system which translates in lots of pleasure and less rules to be guided by. Jason is an independent father and a body psychotherapist/tantra trainer/doula that needs some help around the house, garden and with the children when he works. If you are interested let us know about it. Hugs Baker family.

AT THE MOMENT WE NEED HELP IN THE GARDEN, IN THE HOUSE AND WITH THE CHILDREN.
We are looking forward to doing some renovating using sustainable materials, mainly earth/clay, to finish of our new surgery/consultation space. We would like a few good workers that have done this kind of work before or that are willing to learn how to do it with us. There is also some garden work, house work, renovations and babysitting/childcare.
The helpers sleep in 2 rooms in the house. Most of the beds are low or are simply a futon on the wooden floor. Adventurous people could sleep in a tent in the forest/garden area. I supply most of the food (veggies) and we usually cook and clean up together. Hope you enjoy yourself here.
We don't have wifi but with your own a pen/stick you can have an internet connection with your own labtop. If you are hooked on the net please bring your own pen/stick. The best reception here is vodafone.
