I'm Rosário and I am the responsible for Monte do Álamo project, a 7ha beautiful farm near Tavira, Algarve. Together with my daughters, husband and friends we have been developing this certified organic farm and preparing it to be ecological sustainable.
The farm has carrob, almond, fig and olive trees, some very old and some new. We have also created a vegetable garden. New works for 2019 envolve green fences, compost preparing and the poultry house.
Me, my daughter Inês, her boyfriend Luis work here also and will accompany the workawayers.
Help with Eco project
We know Algarve region and also other parts of Portugal very well and can give the travellers all the touristic information about those places. They can colaborate and learn from it in an agroecological project that envolves the whole farm and has being developed for 2 years. We also expect to learn from the travellers experience and also learn more about their own countries.
We need help with the works in the farm such as carob, almond and olives harvest. The work consists of preparing the field and harvest the fruits after. In February and March the work will be cleaning the trees and preparing and planting the vegetable garden. All works will be made together with us and also with our specialist in agro ecology that will be here 2 days per month.
Portuguese, English, Spanish, French
Depending on the season, we can accommodate workawayers in the house in the farm or in another house we have in town. Both accomodations have private bedroom and bathroom.
We provide 3 meals per day. The lunch, taken together with the family is also an opportunity to share informations about the region and to help them organizing their free time while they are here.
Apart from the lunch, they may have to prepare the other meals and they will have the necessary conditions for it (the use of the kitchen).
Workawayers will have also access to a washing machine to wash their clothes.
Tavira is a touristic old town located in a national park Ria Formosa. Its a very nice area to enjoy nature and cultural activities. We can provide bicycles for the workawayers and in Tavira (1 km from the farm) there is public transportation (train and bus).
