    Bush Retreat and Holistic Sanctuary

    Hi, my name's Millo. I'm regenerating this once abandoned farm into a holistic sanctuary and nature conservation area where I'll be inviting protectors, guardians and ecosystem restoration campers wanting to help build a community of people who wish to work for the conservation of nature where domesticated animals are used collaboratively using holistic management techniques and where the role of wild animals is respected and understood in terms of maintaining ecological balance.

    This land will become an Ecosystem Restoration Camp & Regenerative Agriculture Collective with creative space as a hub.

    Easy going, kind, simple and straightforward people are invited to volunteer and participate. Empathy and kindness is essential.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    I have a strong connection with a growing community of permaculture projects around here so if you are interested in meeting more people where potentially you could also visit on a work exchange basis then I could be a bridge to that.

    I believe in fair exchange, so when it comes to communication I expect a fair and equal exchange based on honest sharing and empathy. If you like to talk or preach a lot then this might not be the place for you.

    Arbeit

    I'm looking for easy going people with a good sense of awareness regarding personal boundaries and full circle living. There is no fixed schedule here, and once we've agreed on your assigned tasks/projects then you can work to a schedule that suits you. Normally I ask for 4-5 hours a day in exchange for food and accommodation but currently funds are low and I'm asking for about 2-3 hours a day in exchange for accommodation/camping only and if they would like to join in meals then we would ask for a weekly contribution towards food expenses.

    If you are particularly handy at fixing up spaces with second hand materials then you may be interested in a live-in refurbishment project. I need someone who is creative with respects to finding building solutions from limited stock of second hand material and someone who feels competent at building things in a solid way. If you're interested and you think that you're suitable to this task then please get in touch.

    Most work will be varied but will also involve bush clearing, mulching, tree planting and watering. Some of this work requires that you're in reasonably good physical shape and not afraid of a bit of hard work (along with a few scratches and bruises).

    This project is still in its infancy and therefore quite basic. Because of this it may not accommodate all tastes.

    Accommodation. There are several options:

    1. You can pitch up a tent under the mimosas. It's a cool spot in summer and often includes a hammock very close by. There are also other areas around if you prefer somewhere more private.

    2. There is a small caravan which has a comfortable bed, storage compartments, some shelves and a small desk. Clean and comfortable.

    3. There is a small room in the small house. The small house also has a (shared) kitchen, composting toilet, internet room / office and lounge. Because of the fact that it's a shared house it might not be as private a space as the caravan or tent.

    Showers:

    There is a shower cubicle in the house for simple (but warm) bucket and cup showers.

    Toilet:

    Composting toilet.

    Kitchen:

    You may have to be prepared to cook for yourself at times as I'm not always able.

    Regarding the running of the house, especially the kitchen. It's a shared space, and so it's up to everyone to maintain good habits with regards to order and cleanliness. This, along with helping to keep this area litter free is always highly appreciated in those who come to visit.

    I have a good working bike (and several more that need some fixing) that you can use to go out and explore the area. There are also plenty of cafes in the surrounding villages where you could hang out, have a coffee, play cards and learn the Portuguese ways with the locals.

    If you prefer peaceful and quiet activities then there are plenty of places around here to meditate, read a book or just relax. If you are interested in yoga then we will soon have a yoga deck installed where you can practice yoga - There will be a regular paid class on monday but the deck will be available any time outside of that for your own practice.

    In summer we often have regular community events so you will be welcome to join in on those events when they happen. I also do some reggae nights, either at a venue, or on the farm, just to keep myself sane.

    A note on some things you'll need to bring:

    - torch
    - sleeping bag
    - wet weather gear / waterproof jacket
    - work boots
    - work clothes that you don't mind getting muddy or stained
    - warm clothes for evenings and for sleeping in when it gets cold
    - hat for sunny weather
    - towel - a small quick drying one is good
    - chemical-free biodegradable soap / shampoo / toothpaste etc

    Please do not bring any shower gels / deodorants etc with artificial perfumes.

    I PREFER NO ALCOHOL PLEASE.

    We have work gloves you can borrow if needed, and wellies can be bought cheaply or we may have some your size.
