(small) Quinta Roots & Wings needs your help

Location: Alcains, Portugal
I have recently started this small Quinta project (8000m2). The house is finished, now we would be greatly helped with setting up (permaculture) garden, creating a nice guest space with/from a caravan (incl. ecotoilet), perhaps a pond, some works with cement and/or loads of other interesting projects. Would be nice if you have some experience or are willing to experiment with me.
Roots & Wings is a homage to Osho and his great work. It represents the vision I have for this space. With our feet firmly rooted in the ground and connected with nature, allowing for our innate potential, creativity and energy to take wings <3


This is flexible as far as I'm concerned. Three hours a day (in the morning or evening when it's not too hot) is a good starting point. That will be for maintenance. We can plan out projects and determine times/days etc.


Accommodation is either a private caravan, or a private room in the house, breakfast (with daily fresh eggs) and lunch included (since I don't eat dinner, but you can fix that yourself if you need). Outdoor showers and normal toilet, although eco-toilet is one of my projects.
There is wifi (although I use wireless as little as possible). I have a small dog and cat, and animals are welcome. I'm sure they'll get along.
This is a open & welcoming, but queer space (gay just means happy ;-)) and we have no problem with nudity.
The place is not really remote, but also not deadcentre of the village. Having a car yourself is handy, we have (shaded) parking spaces.
You can check out the area on any maps to see what's around. Please, feel free to ask any questions you have.
