We're a young couple with baby (1+ year old)

Animals: Goats, Sheep, Chicken

We have a large vegetable plot which due to the climatic conditions in our area needs to be well watered daily.

We try to live as self-sufficient as possible, grow and produce most of our food on our own land.

We're looking for a young single person, m or f (even though f might suit better*) to help with the farm duties and the baby/ household (*).
Would be great if the helper already has some basic knowledge e.g. in milking goats by hand, making cheese, gardening etc. but it's not a must!
possibly the helper could run the farm on his/ her own for some days to allow us to take a break from our routine but this would have to be discussed individually and highly depends on the helper and if he/ she feels able to do this...

-low key conditions on the farm
-very simple accommodation in an open straw-bale hut (no rain to be expected here in summer...)
-compost toilet and shower tbd soon
-tradi... more inside

**JUNE UPDATE**

2015 will be the big year for renovation and construction, so if those things interest you, please get in touch.

There are of course many things still to do on the land - planting, pruning, re-discovering the levadas and old watercourses - plus the never-ending battle with the brambles (ronces, espinheiros, brombeerstrauch)...

General organisational help and shopping/cooking are also essential. Something for everyone, in other words!

**----------**

WHAT: A new eco-project half-way up the highest mountain in Portugal. We got started in August 2014 and a lot has happened. And most of it thanks to wonderful HelpX-ers!

The site is completely off-grid, and has excellent year-round water supplies, impressive terraces, fruit trees (apple, pear, plum, quince), sweet chestnut, and a couple of buildings - both in need of thorough renovation.

And that's pretty much all we *do* have at the moment - aside from the desire to create a very comfortable a... more inside

I have a 20metre skutsje barge from holland which i sailed to the Guadiana river recently.Its a beautiful. beautiful river. You might have seen that i am offering bed and breakfast on the boat on the river. However the boat ,as with all boats, needs maintenance attention from time to time. The work mainly involves grinding(rust spots), sanding and painting on steel and wood. Any specialist skills pertaining to the boat are of course welcome but not necessary. Accommodation will be on the boat during the work period(s) which is clean and comfortable is clean. Suitable for singles or couples. Would normally look for shorter term helpxing situations.

We are in the process of setting up an truly alternative lifestyle. This involves us reforming a property and implementing permaculture systems in the garden. We have a huge amount of work to do and welcome conscious, hardworking adaptable people to come and join us.

We have a lot of building work to do and really need the following skills, builders, plasterers, electricians, plumbers, carpenters...….

I would also really appreciate anyone who had a good insite into gardening and is interested in helping with that. We are very close to many surfing beaches so if you like to surf this can be a very nice opportunity to help me while we help you too
If this is not for you then maybe you will be interested in another area of work which involves computer and sales skills to develop or network of video communications which we use to promote this place. Come join us and help us create a little piece of paradise
