Hi there and welcome to my workaway profile 🤗
First a little something about me my name is Silvan and i‘m 32 years old born and raised in switzerland my friends describe me as a happy thoughtful and energetic lad with a creativ mind and a backpack full of humour.
I love traveling nature exploring , sports, gardening and landscaping, food-cooking & wine
Traveling aswell is what brought me here to Portugal in 2019 i walked a part of the Camino Portugues and ended up here in Vale de Prazeres as a Volunteer.
for almost 1.5 Years i helped and worked for several families here in Vale de Prazeres and i fell in love with the freedom, possabilities and nature in the region.
The families are now either my very best friends or my neighbours. After good 1.5 years of tracking down the property owners and getting a signing agreement i can very happily call my self a farm owner ✨
My dream is to put all my love energy and passion into this place to create a environment where everybody can enjoy the benefits of the country life.
My main interest lays in biodiversity i plan to plant a huge variaty of trees bushes shrubs herbs flowers and ornamentals on my property which will hopefully blow everybodys mind one day.
fancy giving me a hand and beeing part of this journey?
