Hi!

My name is Ruth. I am nearly 53 years of age. I don't take any type of medication meaning my health is in optimum condition.

I live in beautiful Portugal, a country that has many positive things to offer.

I am currently divorcing the father of my 11 years old daughter.

My dream is to keep looking after the beautiful farm where I am currently living. I am blessed to live in one of the most beautiful spots of Serra de Gardunha, a mountain range facing the Valley of  Gardunha.

The farm is very large. The land is comprised of 25 hectares of which at least 18 is woodland (mainly pine trees). The land is known for being one of the main sources of water of this area. Lots of water!

The land offer many potentially. I dream seeing here a 'proper' Permaculture project.

So, here I am...a free lady looking for a lovely, caring, nature lover and honest man to join me in this adventure we call life.

Interested?

hi.  I am not your Mr right neither,  since I am married, I just want to tell you that me too just started my permaculture project in a 7 hectares property,  already build myself a dome cabin in that property, and currently building a dome home in another property,  I am trying to turn a degraded land into a forrest,  I am just starting to rehydrate the land using a keyline design, ponds  and swales, that is the first thing to do.  once that is done. the rest should be easier,  according to sepp holzer that is the more important thing to do. (the water) second step, is to follow geoff lawton and bill morrison principles, third step is to use the fukuoka method.  to spread seeds. just like sepp holzer do  too. well. at least that is what I am trying to do. but I just started,  well , now, a little bit about me.  like you. I have been moving around  a lot. lived  in the us and canada for a few years,   also in england for  a year, now I am back in mexico and ready to settle. unles something else comes up. if you have any question, please let  me know. I speak english and spanish, and I am trying to improve my french,  so maybe we could  exchange permaculture ideas and tips.
so  cheers and lets keep in touch.

Hi Ruth, I'm looking to get into an off grid life and if you're ok with it I'd like to offer my volunteer work for accommodation. If we hit it off that would be great if not then then I'd still like to be part of your community. tuveruscra@gmail.com let's get to know each other

Hi Ruth,
you
I am not replying to the singles portion of your ad, I am replying to the farm worker portion of your ad. I am a herbalist and permaculture mama also who would love to spend 2-4 years working with you on your homestead. If you would like to explore this more send me your email and we can chat.
Blessings
Aspen

Hi Ruth!

I had just looked into moving to Portugal earlier today. It looks beautiful. You're beautiful. Your garden is beautiful. I may not be the right person even though I love nature and people and plan to move from Newport Beach California later this year but I thought I'd see if there is a possibility. I'm a 62-year-old musician, mainly songwriting and composing for musical theater and other venues. My monthly income from Social security is $700. Anything else I should know if I'm even in the running? Thanks so much.

There are no more "hours", it's centi-days. They say it's better, but this tiny ad says it's stupid:
