  • Beschreibung


    We are a completely non-profit reforestation and land rehabilitation project, located in the foothills of the magical mountains of Monchique, Algarve.

    Through the concept of work as meditation (karma yoga) we are creating a space for people to connect, learn and grow. You are welcome to collaborate with our reforestation project

    Our host and main teacher is a land of 21 hectares in total. Once an arid and almost deserted place due to successive decades of disrespectful forest practices and several very destructive fire processes, the dream of an emerging forest is now becoming real, an immense biodiversity reserve of both plants and animals and a space of abundance for us all.
    Following the massive destruction of the 2016 Monchique fire, reforestation has been our utmost commitment: the hills were landscaped to prevent erosion and to increase water retention. Five large lakes were added to the existing ones and over 13.500 new trees of more than 100 different species have been planted. Biodynamic agriculture and Permaculture principles are an integral part of our land project, understood as a symbiotic relation with nature in which we interact in order to increase biodiversity and accelerate the soil recovery process, but also for us to observe, respect and simply learn from her teachings.

    Apart from the project-related learning possibilities, you will have the opportunity of sharing your daily life with people from all the parts of the world, to share your values, your consciousness and awareness and also to become part of the community experience in its endless learning process towards a more sustainable way of living.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Here you will learn about how to live in a sustainable community based around meditation and consciousness and to live in alignment with the Earth and take care of her as our mother and friend. You'll contribute actively to a living organism, a place that encourages awareness and love on the planet and celebrates the juiciness of life and the silence of self. You'll be invited to dive into Karma Yoga as well as meditation classes. What you take out of this experience is equal to what you put into it. Again, this project is not a vacation, but a commitment to being in truth and sharing the best version of yourself.

    Was noch ...

    We emphasize the importance of a commitment and service to the project's development, as an offering to the Earth. A devoted yet relaxed vibe, with respect for all team members and the land we live on.

    As our grey water is recycled and used to water our trees, please only use eco products, for showering, toothpaste, sunblock, body lotion etc.

    We are located 20 minutes (by car) from the amazing Algarve beaches and 25 minutes from the Monchique mountains. It is a beautiful place, and while it feels very remote, we are actually only 20 minutes from the cities of Portimao and Monchique. There is a public bus service that stops right outside our front gate.

    There is free Wifi at a local café, 10 minutes (by foot) up the road from us, or we recommend you to get a Portuguese sim card with data on it as there are many good deals.
