  • Descrição


    We are Emily (31), James (32) and our daughter Delma who is 3 years old.

    **Update: we are looking for someone to come from the 10th August onwards for 2+ weeks to volunteer. With the possibility to house sit for the month of September**

    We live in a valley 20 minutes from Monchique, completely surrounded by nature with our dog Patti, 2 kittens and chickens on a 1.8 hectare plot of mountain land.

    We would love some help around the land expanding the veggie garden, feeding the chickens, planting trees, clearing and pruning. As well as the possibility of jobs in the house, painting, tiling, rendering....the list is long! But the main focus now is the land.

    I (Emily) am a Reiki and Massage therapist and I usually have weekly clients. So there will be times you are working on your own. But I'd also love to work on projects together.

    James is a carpenter and currently works away regularly installing wooden cabins. He will be away this summer for 14+ weeks (on and off) it's those weeks that I need extra help.

    We are a friendly couple and have really enjoyed spending time with volunteers in the past. We also love time to ourselves and respect this need in volunteers too.

    It's a very quiet and peaceful valley. A vehicle is essential to get to town.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    You will experience the development of a small holding. What it's like to build an off grid life from scratch...water systems, composting toilets, growing vegetables, caring for animals.
    Learn to live in harmony with nature and embrace the beauty of a simple life.

    I like to work mindfully and would like to share this experience with others.
    I'm open for reiki/massage exchanges when we find the time.
