An old house and banana organic farm that belonged to my great grandparents which I manage since 2012. I host tourists through Airbnb and sometimes CouchSurfing travellers. You'll help me maintain the garden, banana plantation vegetables and other trees, composting, housekeeping, some construction, upcycling and welcoming guests for my Airbnb space. I love working with permaculture, dry toilets, bio-construction, fungal and bacterial worlds and arts. I have a very good network of friends and people that work on sustainability in the island, Portugal mainland and even world like. I have done independent volunteering in Haiti after the big earthquake with GiveLove NGO, working on compost toilets with Joe Jenkins (Humanure Handbook), Hamish Skermer (Natural Event) and Patricia Arquette (actress and GiveLove cofounder). I have also managed, develop and scaled up the dry toilets and food waste composting departments at Boom Festival in 2008, 2010 and 2012.
I ask for 5 hours of work per day for 6 days of the week in exchange for accommodation and mostly organic food. You can also work for a full 8 hours day and take a full day off.
I can provide most of the food and you/we can prepare meals when possible (sometimes I work outside and have no time to make meals at home)
I have a full room with 2 single bed with some of my belongings. There is fast free wifi internet. I also have portable bluetooth speaker so we can work with some music ;)
On free time I can drive you around the island for walks, live concerts and fun.
