  • Descripción


    Hello, We are Ana and Lukas. We are reforming our former vinyard in the middle of beautiful Arrabidá (National Natural Park) into a food forest. We have been planting lots of trees and plants over the last year and have lots of projects lined up for the future.

    We are a Portuguese/Dutch couple. We (love to travel) are very concerned with the future of our planet and try to make our land into an oasis of biodiversity. We also try to enjoy life; we hike, make roadtrips, camp, visit the beach, sunset, mmmmm

  • Ayuda


    The help we need varies with the seasons, this is a general overview. For the heavy groundwork we use a machine but there is still a lot of digging to do after the machine did its work.

    Vegetable and fruit garden - Pruning, harvesting, processing. (Household scale) Weeding (around the trees)
    Planting trees and plants - Digging holes, bringing soil and compost (wheelbarrow), putting support poles. (hammer)
    Nursery - Propagating, watering, repotting plants and trees.
    Cutting weeds with weedcutter. (Experience is nice but not neccessary)
    Digging watercatching channels on the hill.
    Building dam(s) in the river with sandbags, the sand is already in the river ;-)
    Building ponds and small channels for irrigation.
    Preparing/egalizing platforms.
    Install poles for shadow (Poles in the ground with concrete, steel cables, climbing plants... voilá)
    Installing Phytofilter for grey water. (More digging, put plastic, gravel, sand, plants..)
    Renovate the water reservoir; this open concrete box is 1,5M high, 5M wide and 5M long. It has to be cleaned on the inside and needs a new coating. When ready we will put back the fish and frogs and then we can start to put more fish to fertilize the land.
    Black Soldier Fly Larve growing boxes (for the fish)
    Tree maintenance - Cutting, removing and collecting branches. (Burning in winter and spring)
    Maintenance of vermiculture, composting, hydroponics, nursery.
    Building maintenance - Cleaning (High pressure) Painting, small concrete repairs.
