We're looking for one or two people to look after our land while we go to Boom festival. Mostly watering, not too much work. You would need to arrive by Aug 9th so we can show you what needs doing, we will leave on the 10th. We'll be back on the 18th, it would be great if you can stay until we get back, but even if you can only stay half the time we are away it would still be useful.

We purchased this property at the end of 2012 and it is still a work in progress, the houses were ruins which are being restored so the facilities are still very basic - temporary kitchen, compost toilet, no shower - water in stream to wash in. There is a spring for drinking water.

We're planting a forest garden.

See our website for some photos of the land and the area. Most of the land is quite wild, we are letting the native oak forest return. There is lots of wildlife here, it changes throughout the year, now in summer we have lizards and geckos, plus birds (although the best time for birds ... more inside

My name is Tim and I am British and I am married to Nic who is half Scottish and half Australian. We have had numerous travel experiences which we hope to continue and be able to share with others.

We have both spent many years working overseas from inside the Arctic Circle (in winter) to Northern Kenya, and many countries in between. Our philosophy is simply "life is too short". We are resilient, resourceful and are told we are great company. We have been happily married for the last 9 years.

We also have a black Labrador and a cat.

We are qualified and well practised first aiders!

We are looking for a couple with interest in building, gardening and cooking to come help from March 2016 onwards.

The main aim is to create fun, practical and hard-wearing furniture for the co-working studio, common kitchen and dormitory.

We will also be renovating the roof on the outside shower, building a tool shed + woodstore in the carpark and creating a sun shade for the water tanks - working with: wood, stone, ceramic tiles and creativity :)

We'll start working again in March 2016 with the aim to have everything complete by June 2016.

We plan to host a few small groups over the summer - at which point we'll also need a volunteer to help with day to day tasks such as cooking, gardening and cleaning.

Hello dear HelpXer! My Name is Uta and I already live here for eleven years. The house is located on the edge of the village of Almargens, 2km north of São Brás de Alportel. It lies idyllically within the hilly surroundings of the Serra region, the wild back lands of the Algarve. Surrounded by lowly gardens with orange- and lemon trees one always finds peace and tranquility. I have got two dogs, chickens and some birds.
The HelpXer has its own Apartment including bathroom and a little kitchen! Food would be according to the arrangements.
The working time will be something around 4 hours a day and would consist in walking and feeding the dogs, watering the garden, helping with the holiday guests, maintaining house and pool, painting walls ore furniture and so on... won´t be heavy work.

beautiful place in nature, part of a creative community. I am building a project for creative writing, meditative retreats for self development and healing of the earth and self.

This is an old farm in an abandoned hamlet located in the Serra da Acor in Central Portugal. We are Jean (27) and Mara (26) from Belgium and Holland. Nine months ago we moved in to the farm and immediately started to work the land.
There is several old natural stone buildings that need some restoring, and a lot of land with olives, vineyards, fruit trees, over grown areas, water springs, brooks, vegetable fields, woodland.
A lot of the work is in the vegetable gardens.
The land is divided in terraces and quite mountainous. Getting your way around the larger valley can be adventurous!

We've started an big vegetable field and are selling weekly organic vegetable boxes. Our aim is to have an organic smallholding embedded in nature, using permaculture principles and aiming towards self-sufficiency.
At the moment we are finishing renovation work on a small building, using a lot of cob and learning carpentry skills. We are fully off grid, but solar powdered and using water from ou... more inside

We are a busy couple in the very relaxed and picturesque town of Olhão (10km from Faro - South of Portugal). We would love to have someone help cook meals for us two during the busy season (June-October). It can be for any length of time. The helper (single or couple) would be staying in an independent studio attached to our house. We have a few dietary requirements which can be a bit off-putting for a cook ! : We are mainly vegetarian (we eat fish and eggs), one of us is allergic to garlic don't eat cow products and avoid gluten (not celiac). Apart from that we eat everything and we like eating good food !
