  • Beschreibung


    We are Laura, David and a little baby to come, we live in a small village near Sintra called Penedo where we make all kinds of natural products, from cosmetics like soaps, creams, deodorants, toothpaste and etc, to food products like kombucha, bread, pastes, syrups and much more. All these products we sell at markets and form mouth to mouth through our little brand that we developed to share everything we like to do with our hands.
    10 minutes away from our house we started an agricultural project, with animals and ecological constructions to inhabit and learn to live in a sustainable way and more connected with nature, where we were living for 1 and a half year, until we took a break when the pregnancy started and we needed more calm and structure in our lives.

    Now, even though we are not living on the land, we want to continue giving life and learning in this little piece of land that welcomes us with such beauty.
    So we are looking for hands that can help us follow this path of sustainability and create life with our own hands.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We are learning how cultivate this land based on sustainable principles from scratch. We enter on the the land on a very wild state after more than 20 years being abandoned and little by little we are manifesting our dreams and creating life again.
    So there is always a good opportunity to learn together, create and develop new ideas.
    The surroundings of the land are rich in nature with stunning views to the sea and mysterious paths in the forest. So it's a great place for those who want to be in natural surroundings, take beautiful walks and also help and learn how to develop a project from scratch.
    We also love to chat, light a fire, play some music and share experiences.

    At the moment we need 2 or 3 volunteers maximum to help us with 2 main areas: permaculture plantation and eco-building.

    Very near of the land you have at walking distance the Cabo da Roca and Praia da Ursa, the most westerns points on Europe. Is a quite stunning spot to connect with the ocean and feel the atlantic winds. Also, on the surroundings there are very great spots to walk around. 10 minutes walking from the land there is the Serra de Peninha, which amazing trails to hike. And like 10 minutes by car you reach Praia da Adraga, a wild and amazing beach that we really love.
    Then, 10 min by bus you are in Colares, the biggest village on the area. On 25 minutes you reach Sintra city with its amazing monuments and old castles. And if you want to hang in the city you can take a bus to Sintra or Cascais and from there commute to the centre of Lisbon all in around an hour
