About the workproject

We need 6 volunteers

Hello everyone. So, explanation time: On the 26th of February, I embarked on an adventure which change the course of my life forever, I had a one way ticket and flew to Portugal. Now I am still here, working on a family farm/animal rescue. This has set a precedent in to my life which let me see what I can do to change the world and let me do it too.

On this adventure I am doing everything I wished to do from; caring for animals (horses especially) to building raised planters. Here I can still practice all my hobbies ranging from pottery to archery (I am far from skilled but it's an interest) to musical instruments.

With being as busy as I am, I have now created this page to show everyone how easy it is to change your life. Before I came I was depressed and stressed, now feel as though I am full of life and ecstatic!

I will be posting any and all updates that I can, I only wish to encourage people to change themselves for the better (I am not saying what I am doing is better than you, only saying that I feel better in myself.)

Life moves in mysterious ways and we never know what is around the corner. So anyway, welcome to The Modest Mucker!

The Muddy Mucker needs Mini Muckers! All ages and abilities welcome!

The people I am after are: ? People to either work under me (as in I shall teach them)
? People to work along side with me (as in we shall work either on our own on different jobs or together on large jobs)
? People to work on their own (as in to potter or do bits and bats here and there)
? People to do jobs in pair or groups (I shall show you current or most important jobs to do and you can work together in your group)

If you feel you are under-trained or ill-experienced, do not fret. You can come to learn or teach anything you wish.

Permanent Positions are muchly needed but if you wish to work for one a week or two, a month or two or more then this is completely fine too.

Current jobs positions that could do to be filled are;
• Gardeners
• Animal walkers/Muckers for anything from cats to horses/ animal groomers
• Builders of all trades
• Landscapers
• farmers
• cooks/chefs/bakers
• artistic painters
• grass strimmers
• tree/bamboo pruning/maintenance
• D.I.Y.ers
• cleaners

All ages and abilities are welcome and jobs can work around you.

Couples/families/singles are all welcome and excepted.

Your own food shall be provided, whether you're a vegan/vegetarian or not you food shall be prepared and cooked accordingly.

Your accommodation could be anything from a bivvy/ tent to a RV. If you have nothing like this, then accommodation can be provided for you with prior arrangements.

Work hours can be changed around you if needs be but usually it works out around four hours to five a day. Two days off a week is allowed but anymore will be seen as laziness unfortunately. Days out are completely fine. They could include days to the beach, a day out driving/sightseeing e.c.t.

Each and every night around dinner time we have a friendly catch up with one another, some nights will be a music night with our own instruments, others could be movie nights.

We are very flexible and would love to have as many people here to help out and get mucky!
