Who we are:
We are a young family, Tania (Portuguese/German), Joe (Austrian) and our daughter Zaya.
Where you will be:
Our land (12ha) is situated in the North of the Serra de Estrela, 10min south of Trancoso.
What you will do:
- Working alongside the diggers, niveling and staking swales on contour; creation of checkdams and various waterharvesting structures.
- Helping with the construction of a roundwood-timber-frame house and a earth-covered roof.
- Killing brambles
- Taking care of our little one
- Planting a walnut orchard
work is 5.5h a day, 5 days a week (0600ish-1130ish)
How will you live:
You will be living in our comfy house (kitchen, hot water) and have your own room. Camping is possible.
Food is plenty and rather opportunistic. Since we have a lot of aunties and uncles in the village with their own spectacular gardens we will be loaded with homegrown veggies. Not everything is certified organic but we try. Meat and fish is occasionally part of our diet. (weekend-barbecues).
What we expect of you:
Motivation and a healthy portion of common-sense
