We have just leased 20 hectares of land with a farm in central Portugal (the eco-farm is located above Pedrógão Pequeno, in the mountains, 4 km away, at an altitude of 550 metres, with 5 rooms, solar power and our own water mine in the mountains as well as a deep well at the house) and are still looking for volunteers to build our eco-project. It used to be a cattle fattening farm, but it fell victim to the forest fire here in 2017. The owners have left the farm and are offering it for lease. We now want to grow organically and are looking for really capable people to help us cultivate the large land. We have enough water and good soil. We bake our own bread and grow vegetables in our still small garden. Now we are in the process of getting some farm animals (goats to eat the weeds in the hills, sheep for the lush meadows, chickens are already here, and fresh eggs every day. There is a goat farm nearby that provides fresh goat milk. Electricity from the city is directly connected, but we use our solar system because electricity costs are rising now. We are looking for helpers to set up the barn, clean up and stay atmosphere, everyone should feel comfortable. I would like a first meeting, via Telegram or WhatsApp so we can get to know each other. We have 3 children and they need to be looked after too. Scenically, this region is very interesting, for hikes and excursions. The nearest small shop is 4 km away, in a small town. We have a car here, which we can also use to go to the weekly markets and plan excursions. There are also 7 bicycles here that need to be repaired, so excursions into the surrounding area are also possible. Everything is new to us and is being redecorated, many things need to be repaired and rooms painted. The house has been empty for years. We are not vegans and feed ourselves with local products, the construction of a clay oven for baking bread is planned, farm animals for food, a garden for self-sufficiency. We have been given many old stables and a lot of usable land by the owner, which now needs to be farmed. Anyone with experience in animal husbandry and gardening is welcome.
Many thanks and best regards

I have learned 3 professions, toolmaker, cook and photographer in marketing, have been travelling in West Africa since 1998 and completely there from 2008 to 2013, really know everything outside the comfort zone. I let these experiences flow in here, live and let live! I pass on my life experiences to every helper, he is taught everything. everything I know, he is taught. if he wants it, I don't force anyone, everyone is free to act for themselves!
