  • Description


    Hey there!I am Manuel (34), living on a small farm with three pigs, 2 dogs and cats. I have mixed roots, half Portuguese and German. I'm active , enjoying surfing, ninjutsu and the easy way of life! love to travel, meet different cultures and especially love cooking and eating good & healthy food (as you are what you eat), to get back to the roots by being self-sufficient and working in harmony with nature instead of against it. I am looking for volunteers, that share the interest of a healthy lifestyle and would want to exchange work (4h a day, 6 days a week- but i am flexible) for food, accomodation and the experience of living with me on my little farm!I only just build a little house on the land here and there are heaps of projects to do!I am excited to meet some of you personally :-)If you are interested, please contact me!!
