Quinta do Queijao - Annegret
I am looking for people to help mantain the place by pruning trees, cleaning stone walls from weeds, landscaping and do some repairs. Sometimes I will need house sitters (I don´t have pets so it will be looking after the place, garden etc...)

I like to have helpers who are independent, organize their work and love to give input.

The quinta is at the edge of a small village in the Viseu district of central Portugal. The land is almost two hectares including woodland, terraces for growing, fruit trees (mostly apple and pear), kiwi vines and lots of grape vines.

Helpers stay in an apartment with two bedrooms, living room and balcony, bathroom and kitchen.

Quintinha do Serrado - Scott
Quintinha do Serrado is a small organic permaculture farm. Scott wants to bring the farm back into production using organic methods and permaculture principles. In his garden he produces almost all the vegetables he needs for own consumption. Helpers will stay in a caravan or tent.

For both places:
We ask for five hours help a day, with varying work depending on what projects we are doing at that time.
Jobs include weeding and watering, preparing and sowing beds, planting out seedlings, harvesting and storing food and picking grapes to press for juice.
We are looking for independent people whom we can trust to be left to get on with tasks.

Minimum stay would be one week but longer stays possible. If you think you would like to come and stay here and help then please get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.
