    Description

    Dear volunteers,

    We are at the moment looking again for 1-2 volunteers to help us with some (finishing) building work at our house of clay.

    You should be able and willing to physical work.
    .....................................................................

    We are a little family (50/43/10years old) and live on the beautiful countryside close to Odeceixe, at the southwest coast of Portugal on a biological farm.

    In 2000 we moved from our home country Germany to Portugal attracted by the nice climate, so many sunny days, the nice region and the simplicity of life.

    We came here to look for a more sensefull and quality life, away from the strict structre we were used to. We live close to nature, do biological gardening and ecological building and hold some animals like some chickens, a goat, 2 friendly dogs, 2 cats and a horse.

    We provide ourselfes with own water from the well and electricity from solar energy.

    The next town is about 1, 5km away and easily can be reached by foot. There you have a small supermarket and a pub. The village Odeceixe is about 3km away where you have more facilities like a bank, farmacy, bigger supermarkets. The beach is about 7 km away.

    The beaches on our coasts are highly recommended for surfing, BTT and walks along the hiking trail "Rota Vicentina" .

    Volunteers should be fisically fit and willing to put their energy into the work.

    Our meals are flexi vegetarian. So we mostly eat vegetarian and once a week more or less meat. Served meals are breakfast and dinner.
