About the workproject

All volunteers must be non smoker and vegetarians or vegans. It is better if they have a drive licence. The manor where I live in Paços da Serra is a old gest house called Casa Grande. Paços da Serra is a little village in the center of Portugal in the Serra da Estrela region. In winter there are more portuguese guests and in Summer more forein guests to take care. Help is needed in the house, maintenance, gardening, advertising, marketing, computers, vegetarian kooking, maintenance, construction, etc. Buddhists, meditators, healers, story tellers, walkers, muscians, artists, carpenters, builders, computer experts and creative persons are welcome.
