We are looking for 1-2 volunteers to look after our house and animals from 12th to 19th of July.
We have 2 dogs, 2 cats, a horse, a goat and some chicken that have to be looked after. All animals are nice and easy to handle.
You should be responsible and if not yet experience with animals willing to learn.
We are a little family (49/42/9 years old) and live on the beautiful countryside close to Odeceixe, at the southwest coast of Portugal on our 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, a cat and a horse.
We provide ourselfes with own water from the well and electricity from solar energy.
There is a variety of work to be done, depending on the priority and sometimes just working on one project. For exemple: mantaining the garden, watering plants, animal care, small to medium finishing work on our eco buildings.
We are looking for experienced volunteers who already worked in one or more of the requested áread.
Should you have one or more of these skills you are welcome to help in our project also for a longer period or in form of a small community life.
