This is an opportunity to be part of a unique musical project in the tranquil hills of Portugal. In about a year this place will open up as a guesthouse for music and nature lovers who'd like to unwind from stresses of the city life. The theme at the guesthouse will be about using mindfulness ideas to encourage a kind of flow state while playing or appreciating music...but ultimately it's about having fun.
Looking for a helper to come stay for one week, maybe learn about gardening and permaculture, and be guaranteed to have a nice time. There's usually anywhere between 2 to 5 helpers at any one time.

You might learn about organic farming techniques, permaculture, and enjoy being immersed in an artistically inspirational environment.
The focus at the moment is on building many garden beds out of bricks, which requires muscle and precision work. Also looking for musicians who are happy to bang and strum away at night after work (there's a piano, guitars, bass, electric drum kit and a few random percussion instruments). There'll be a lot of maintenance to do on the land, clearing paths through the forest, etc...some of which can be quite physically demanding.
It would be particularly great to welcome someone who loves cooking (vegetarian food) and who would be happy to do so for most meals :)
You'd have your own private room in a cosy house that's heated throughout the night from the energy of the sun
A beautiful nature walk through the forest following a stream; there is a beautiful waterfall about an hour's walk; Mata Pequenha is perhaps the cutest village in Portugal, which is a 15 minute drive; Ericeira is a world-famous beach town for surfers and is a 20 minutes away by car; Malveira has a huge market every Thursday that attracts lots of tourists from Lisbon and is one train stop away, or 10 minutes by car. The nearest train station from the house is a 5 minute drive down a steep hill, and the trains usually take 40 minutes to get to the heart of Lisbon.
