  • Description

    A 54 year old non smoker, careful listener, quite independent. As a woofer host I have entertained dozens of volunteers and know what upsets hosts... Don't ask question after question, if you see the host struggling help them. Get out of bed early work hard, keep it all tidy and put your tools away and disappear when there is a row going on!
    Collecting a few countries, El Salvador 2016, Nappa Valley, California 2017, Maui Hawaii 2018 and thinking Jordon /Israel 2019. Contact me! I love woodwork, experienced machine operate (chainsaws, excavators, angle grinders etc.) Qualified chemical sprayer.. Check my Instagram account (ecohostalalgarve) and invite me!!

    Hi! I am Stuart. 51 years old and currently running my own eco hostal in the Algarve Portugal.
    I built the whole place myself... see our web site for lots of pictures.
    I post a lot on ecohostalalgarve
    I can call it eco because:-
    Constructed mainly out of used materials
    Good well engineered odour free compost loos
    Collect all our rain water
    Recycle all the used water to water the fruit trees
    and lots more, trained irrigation engineer, machine and tractor driver, builder, plumber, electrician - I have built my last two houses from scratch!

    After a great workaway in El Salvador winter 2016 and California 2017, Hawaii 2018. Now looking for a project for winter 2019... Compost toilets, Decks, woodwork, landscaping, irrigation, building and a bit of carpentry... and a bit of art and the odd beer. Quite happy to work on my own or run a team (I am landscaper based in Portugal) and looking at maybe USA again but quite flexible. I like to book my flights well in advance so please contact me if you need a hand!

Minus Deniro look..
My compost loo. Fully aerobic with ventilation and twin chambers - this toilet is ten years old!!
Lots of shade and hammocks - we also have a movie screen and projector for the hot summer nights
The green door is the compost toilet next to a guest room and close to the house...why do so many people put compost loos so far away?
Pizza oven, solar cooker and rocket stove
OK, not too subtle. This is my Robert Deniro look...
Constructing a first floor in El Tunco, El Salvador..all on my own!
