Welcome to pomar do serpente

we have finished making raised beds and seeding them..lots of grass needs cutting for feeding the goats and for mulching around the fruit trees....
........I am a painter/musician/designer creating a serpent shaped multi-variety orchard with more than 200 young recently planted fruit trees & bio-diverse gardens on an eastern slope down to a small rivulet. These young trees need tending and mulching etc.
We try to maintain the farm on a bio-sustainable footing, using mainly what we grow to sustain ourselves, buying in as little as possible....all planting and harvesting is with this in mind.
I have 25 goats and many of them need pasturing or feeding each day .
75 old olives and 20 figs in the ancient orchard.
We have more than half of the vegetable garden planted using the Permaculture philosophy of both Fukuoka and Hazelips. These 75 raised beds and vegetable towers need tending, weeding and replanting on a continuous basis....the 15 ground beds are rotational & seasonal.
I have a wood-fired bread oven and wwoofers will help make the bread and pizzas when necessary. Recently we have been making focaccia using the fresh herbs and oil from recent olive and herb crop.
There is a computer with internet for wwoofer access in communal living room.
wwoofer sleeping area located in the studio downstairs at ground garden level .One room sleeps 2, the other sleeps 4. this studio is also a library so there are many art books and novels to read in english and portuguese.
there is a bathroom downstairs for wwoofer use.
we work six days a week for five hours a day.
I offer breakfast, lunch and dinner.
