We A have a rural property in Central Portugal only five minute walk to the village of Madeira (not Madeira Island!)

We are about to start the annual Olive harvest, on our land and variouse other tracts in this area, we could use some help. You will need to be prepared to work in outdoor conditions that can be cold, wet and sometimes difficult, it all depends on the weather. The rewards though are great, it is a special time of working eating and enjoying the abundance we are surrounded with.

If you want a great experiance in return for hard work this is for you!

We have both travelled and have lived in at least six countries between us. Many people have done for us and we feel it is our turn to pass on what we learned, sharing skills and experiences.
In exchange for your work we supply accommodation and three meals a day.
We ran a bush lodge for several years, so food is always good and filling, with most of the produce coming off our land. We try and cook most meals i... more inside

I'm most of the way through a house renovation here in Sunny Central Portugal and could do with some help finishing off.

I need help finishing a stud wall, tiling, making a pond, sorting out the garden and that kind of thing. I've got nice accomodation available for suitable volunteers with wireless internet. I prefer volunteers over the age of 23. preferebly 2 friends together or couples. But if you are a good handy person who works well alone that is good too.

Description

Hi, I'm Natascha, 33 years old, living in Portugal for 2,5 years with the intention of staying! I've recently bought an old 17th century farm up high in the Portuguese mountains (the ends of Serra da Cabreira) and am working hard to turn this into a magnificent nature surrounded sustainable camping.
When I first 'met' this old farm, it was in good shape yet abandoned for many years...and it seemed to have lost its soul.
Now, after receiving many people here, friend, families, guests, workers and volunteers... I can truely say it's a magical place..with all the soul and spirit we need! People, animals and nature seem to get along just fine here!
However...it IS a lot of work to do...Too much for just me. Therefore, I'm always looking for some help...in all kinds of projects, in any month of the year.
Of course, during summer time, it's all about the guests.
Year-round, there's a lot of maintenance, carpintry, garden work..and..hopefully the start of a series ... more inside

I have been here one year now aiming to become self sufficient and live full circle.

The set up here is still quite basic. There is a composting loo, but it has no walls, same with bath. I have however now moved into the small house that is now habitable and so vacated the caravan. The caravan has running water (gravity feed from tank) and gas for cooking and heating (run on butane gas bottles). I would be willing to provide the caravan as accommodation in exchange for help with the goats, chickens and general help around the place.

There are also other ongoing projects such as the bio dome, tiling of the water tank, creating water retention spaces, constructing a composting loo, integratingg chickens with goats (creating perches and nesting boxes within) etc but currently funds are not available to carry out all these projects forward so looking into crowd funding. Any help with this could also be beneficial.

To see the greater project, visit our 2nd website link above.

I live in 2h secluded valley of cork oak where I'm looking for help with my ongoing project.

Over the last 15 years I've been building my house, using only natural materials (stone, clay and wood) and self made adobe bricks, mortar and plaster. Much of the materials are recycled, with only wooden fastenings being used, and traditional and alternative building technologies employed throughout.

We are self sufficient for water (from the small lake) and electricity (from the sun). The local village with shops and cafes is within walking distance; the coast is 4km to the south and 12km to the west.

The works that need doing are many and varied: land cleaning, tree care and pruning, collecting firewood, tree care pruning, landscaping and dry stone wall building for example. I'm currently working on the roof of the main house, and could use some general assistance on this, and in particular a top class artistically-minded carpenter would be most welcome. Also if you like tinkerin... more inside
