Portela do Alamo

This smallholding of 1,2 ha was left for 25 years before I got it. There are two wells in the bottom garden. The house that stands on a 'monte',is now restored with a bore hole and a solar pump for water. The attention the land needs involves clearing around the olive trees and the cork oaks and creating and maintaining a self-sustaining vegetable garden (permaculture and biodynamic methods).

I would appreciate a single strong vital, enthusiastic, young helper, female or male.( single, bacause the guestroom is rather small). In return you will receive nourishing and tasty natural meals and a comfortable and pleasant accommodation in a natural setting in which you can take long hikes and do bird-watching. There are other WWOOFers in the area.
During July and August it is very hot, up to 45degrees and garden work only happens between 6.30 and 10am and watering in the evenings.
