    Description

    hello workawayers,
    i moved to a amazing cork farm in southwest alentejo this spring :) for good,left my city life behind and ready for this new
    adventure. the property always needs to be maintained
    fruit trees need to be looked after,this property was abandoned for to long, approximately 22 years and i am trying to bring life back here
    to plant new trees ,flowers and get a vegetable garden going

    wood that needs to be chopped , dead trees cut, fruits picked in season and the fence needs touch up around the land...
    so it all depends the season and weather there is each day something to be done and never boring

    i speak german, english, french, portuguese, croation, i lived in so many places in my live so i was lucky to learn all this languages
    we live eco friendly and you have to do it too,eco products are a must and anyone ignoring it will be asked to leave

    i try to eat local food as much as possible, happy to share meals with u but looking for ppl that are willing to cook on there own and look after them self and have no problem entertaining them selfs

    i love music, bbq, love animals and easy quite life
    i have a puppy dog and looking to get some chicken and cat in the near future

    something that is very important to me is body hygiene, so i ask my guest to shower everyday! in winter the solar water isn't always hot so you will be asked out of your working hours to contribute some wood if you wish to have hot showers everyday
    if i have a feeling that u hygiene doesn't keep up with my standers you will be asked to leave immediately
    those who check in Friday will have to work five days and then have two days of.
    any go outs you will have to pay your own bill,
    last day you have to clean the used area by you in perfect condition
    washing cloths is once a week after a week stay, one load..
    wifi can be used on the hill not during your helping hours
    you wont be told what time to start ,make your own scadgle, as long you do 5h a day, working cloths and shoes are needed.




    thank you for your time reading my profile and i hope to hear from you
    best
    gabriela
