    Beschreibung

    Located in the south-west Algarve on the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, we have already started an eco-friendly project ago: a park in the middle of nature, 10 minutes walking to the sea and near the village of Figueira.
    Our project is to create a brand new space of cultural exchange and fun for families and friends.
    The areas involved are:
    1)Permaculture,
    2) Bio-Construction
    3) Agro-forestry,
    4) Carpentry
    5) Water Management ♻️
    (***This is the most important focus now*** which implies ➡️Physical Work💪⬅️)
    🟣We are building 3 dams to store water (tyres, concrete, rocks, etc.)🟣

    The purpose of this project is to provide the region with a space dedicated to nature, culture and well-being.

    What do we have already done?
    We built:
    1- The Solar Power Station.
    It is also a multipurpose- Shed with all tools we need for working on the land.
    2- Communitary Kitchen.
    (very cozy, protected from rain and wind, with all things you need)
    3- Food Forest Garden. (100% Agroecological production)
    Where we have a variety of different veggies, greens and fruit trees growing.
    4- Two Eco- Dry Toilets (Two Chambers each one, Men and Women)
    Made with straw- clay- sand, very spacious, comfortable and easy to maintain.
    5- Outside hot shower 🚿(almost finished)
    (Meanwhile we can take hot showers in the host's Caravan Park, about 7 min. Walk from our place)
    (6) Chilling out area (developing)
    An outside place to have meetings, fires and share some time.

    🔷️We offer accommodation in one caravan in the land, or parking place for your own.
    🔷️We offer money for you to buy your own food (plus the food from the the veggie garden),
    Wifi, Laundry*

    🔷️In exchange, you will be asked to work 5 hours, 5 days a week as usual.
    🔷️What we expect from potential volunteers? ✴PLEASE READ THIS IF YOU ARE REALLY INTERESTED✴
    🌟We like to live in harmony, cosindering 3 main aspects:
    ➡️ Willingness to work with enthusiasm (proactive-energetic-organised, responsible individuals)
    ➡️ Respect and empathy for the shared place and the people around.
    ➡️Cleaning, hygiene and balanced household organisation to keep the common areas always nice so we can all continue enjoying this beautiful place always in development.
    🟣In general we share most of the time among ourselves as volunteers, so for the ones who have been here for long it is fundamental to be with people who show respect and empathy in all the most important aspects adult people should have.
    ➡️Nuno (the host) comes to help and share but not every day and not for long, since he has also many responsibilities outside this project, so it is crucial to be independent, proactive and have some level of commitment or motivation to be a "plus" to the group, and never the opposite.


    ➡️There is a one-week trial⬅️
    This is for you as a volunteer to decide if you like it and want to stay or not, and also for the host or the person in charge, so both sides have the chance to experience and then take the decision to continue or not.

    The volunteers will be benefiting of one of the most beautiful areas of Portugal, which is the National Park Southwest Alentejo and Vicentina Coast.
    The creation of this project can be a great opportunity for all of us. First of all, it will be a good opportunity to learn how to build basic facilities with organic and recycled materials, practice Permaculture, Bio-Construction and more.

    Volunteers should be people interested in the creation of an innovative eco-park, where people can meet and socialise, relax in nature, enjoy different activities and food, learn through workshops, etc. Volunteers may also be interested in exploring the region, but at the same time wanting to help on a local project, to learn new skills and meet like-minded people.

    Volunteers in their free time can enjoy pleasant walks and get to know the local country lifestyle. The marked hiking trail the Rota Vicentina can be explored as well as many other unmarked trails. You could learn to surf as there are many ideal beaches for surfing in the area (other activities include paddle-boarding, mountain biking, boat trips etc). There are regular buses from Figueira to both Lagos and Sagres where further activities/restaurants/sites/services can be accessed. Within walking distance from the caravan park are several restaurants, a cafe (with vegetarian and vegan food), and a small shop. The nearest large supermarket is 5 minute drive away. Lagos is just 20 minutes by bus or car from our place, there you wil have all you need, also a very active night life, beautiful beaches and viewpoints.
    Also Portimão is around 40 minutes too, this is a quite big city if you need anything else too.
