I am establishing a community space on a lovely quinta close to the village Lagares da Beira. We have approximately 500 wines, some olive trees, a pine-nut plantage, orange and lemon trees and 5 wells, since I am starting alone with my dog I need some help on the land.

Here you can learn with me and my friends from the area how to build a wood cottage and learn to make wine and olive oil beside other experiments in the garden.
Mainly I need to establish a nice veggie garden and keep the fruit trees and wines trimmed, also the fields should be developed in the future. Than I will build a wood house in the forrest and restore the old house for community needs.
I have a nice little clean camping forrest next to the house with enough shade. Until the house is finished I sleep also in a tent under the trees.
I give you a tent with mattress and sleeping bag. Also I got a 6m Sprinter van, which I'll bring here soon...
I have a lot of diverse fruit trees on my land (and on the second land 15 mins from here even more fruits), so here you are in paradise, just pick the ripe fruits and eat them. Also I will buy food for daily cooking in the outdoor kitchen. I eat almost every meal, meat, eggs, fish, no problem. I am not a good cook, so we need to get creative together. I get lots of vegetables and eggs from friends and neighbours who have already a veggie garden (which I just starting to do).
Since I am very close to the village with many cafes and restaurants, groceries, tobacco store etc. it is no problem to walk if you need supplies. And I have a 3 seat pick-Up for bigger things and shopping tours to the city. And I drive every day for organising stuff. Mainly you are free to come with me or stay at the land, I want to give also leisure time and holiday feeling between work ;-)
