May 2018

In exchange for 5 hours help a day, 5 days a week, we offer a pleasant room with shower and good vegan food. As part of the daily routine, guests help us keep the house and garden generally clean and tidy.

Our old farmhouse and 'wilderness' garden is situated in the countryside close to the market town of Loule.
In springtime, after the rainy season, walls need whitewashing, the garden needs weeding (even though we are trying to create a maintenance free garden!) and there is painting and cleaning up to do, inside and out.
Summers are hot and dry and the garden is dormant, so we rarely have helpers at that time, we start to harvest almonds and figs towards the end of August.
In October comes the olive harvest and as temperatures cool along with the first rains, everything starts to grow again.

My name is Elizabeth Hazlewood, Liz for short. I am from Wales, now living on a small Portuguese organic farm. I have a 4 man dome tent for helpers to stay in. I require people to help on the farm, duties would be planting, weeding, watering, helping construct animal shelters and occasional feeding of the animals. I have a small cottage in need of renovation so am looking for a roofer, carpenter, brickie and ‘jack of all trades’. Must be an animal lover!! This is a working farm (not cattle or sheep) so proper working clothes and footwear are essential. The farm is for people that genuinely want to work and get their hands dirty. Please bring a good thick sleeping ba, torch, work gloves, tools etc. The weather is currently 20 plus degrees daytime and 8/12 nighttime. Please try to arrive before midday, 5-6 days a week. 5 hours approximately a day. I provide 3 meals a day. Meat eaters and vegetarians welcome!
