greetings explorers,relaxers and budding cultivators of nature,i am arthur,

i have 300 vines and an irrigated veg garden with 40 olive trees and variety of fruit trees developing,

i have a well and 2 spring sources,

storage shed and fully functional caravan with toilet, solar electric,with 12v to 240v inverter hot and cold water and hobs oven and sink,and heater in winter.

i have separate house in village,(200 metres from land).

im offering help exchange and their are various tasks that i am doing annually from pruning vines and trees to harvesting grapes and olives and wine making or jeripiga and maintaining kitchen garden.

i travel a lot between the harvesting and pruning and need sometimes land sitters who just water the kitchen garden in my absence,usually one month maximum .

when i am there, and caravans free, its a great opportunity for hands on vineyard wine making experience in august and olive harvesting throughout November.(some are preserved some are for oil making i have loads ).

vine and olive tree pruning in January to march, this is other opportunity ,ill teach you to know how to prune vines olives and fruit trees correctly.

i am in process of constructing nursery poly tunnel for early veg production, some well maintenance and deepening and terraforming landscape around boundary, all ongoing things available in thier season, when weathers right,

but in summer its mainly minimal watering tasks till September, and eating fresh produce, load of tomatoes and courgettes etc and in a generous community where food gets shared around or sold very cheap eggs etc

its idyllic quiet place at 600m above sea level at tip of guardunha mountains the fruit bowl of Portugal.nearest train station 3 km at vale de prazeres (valley of pleasures)

food shop and bars in local villages and mountain has 5 villages allong it with traditional festivals throughout the year,

get in touch if u got some questions ask away..... :)

i dj and do music when away and do have occasional musical barbieques on land too as celebration of life.

the deal is ..... accommodation for minimal watering when i am away, usually up to one month at a time back and forth, so self catering but garden produce can be used ,

i reward good work when i am their, with food and drinks and good laugh :),and work never lasts long,

plenty time to pool out or visit places, hope to here from you ,,,,, MAKE TEA CHAT AND GROW VEG NOT WAR , PEACE N LOVE ...Arthur
