I have just purchased 2.5 acres of land in the Algarve, Portugal. The land has so much potential and it needs more than just my hands.

I am looking for someone with relevant skills to teach me & to help me grow & build on the land.

I have a few projects I want to kickstart:
Wooden ecohome , treehouse style, (must blend with surroundings - for more info on requirements you can checkout
Wooden outdoor shelter (gazebo)
Composting toilet
Small organic garden & fruit forest

For now your accommodation will be a tent, all meals are provided & will all be plant-based (vegan), delicious & healthy. This land is part of a community & therefore it is not permitted to bring anything onto the land that is not vegan, you will be asked to leave if this rule is broken. The property is a 80 km from Faro & just a short walk to the beach.
I am a Thai Massage therapist & love to do yoga. Any teachers welcome, part of your volunteering can be helping me progress!
The days will be varied with working hours but no more than 6 hours per day. I am looking for anyone who is willing to help, however, any skills that you think could be beneficial in this environment please speak up, I need a lot of guidance to get this project to work. I'd love to hear your stories & inspiration. For example, yoga teaching, permaculture, eco-building, ANYTHING, I love to learn!

The goal for this land is to be self sustainable - solar power, composting toilet, grey water & growing my own produce.

The main reason for using this site is to meet people and share creativity, I want your input and ideas. I want us to create a haven!

For now I am looking for up to three people to join in the summer. Volunteering time is negotiable but 3 weeks minimum is preferable.

Can't wait to share inspiration with you.
