    We are living our dream on our off-grid small farm in Central Portugal.

    At the moment we are looking for a couple or friends that like to help us on our farm in October and November. The main projects will be helping with the construction of our tiny dome home and our olive harvest.
    Please get in touch if you are interested in helping us.

A lot is land maintainance, working on our annual garden as well as working with natural building techniques to create fencing and other projects we have on the go. Rich is building our wooden dome house which we could also use help with.
