We are a small community in Portugal close to the border of Spain in the Algarve. We recently started our project of the reforestation of a beautiful piece of land. It’s a honor to do this because it’s the land of Agostinho‘s Grand-grandparents that was burned 10 years ago by a fire.
Our goal is to make this land as a living space again.
So we started in 2020 with a greenhouse to grow plants because we definitely need a lot of them. After some time and a break because our little daughter was born our garden is growing more and more. We have now several gardens, a school of trees, and a seed bank that we look after.
Another important part of our daily life is the work with canas. It’s an amazing material that is growing in our land. We developed certain techniques how to use the bamboo like material and are able to build almost everything out of it. Agostinho is becoming a master and is very happy to share his knowledge with you.
Cooking is also an important part of our day and the kitchen is for us a place to meet and enjoy time together.
We would be happy to invite you to our peaceful oasis in the valley of canas and turn this space together with you into a jungle full of plants, living beings and water ponds. We would like to spend here a fulfilling time with you, exchange ideas and knowledge, create new things and turn this space into a place that is in coexistence with the nature, with the people and culture around us and our ideas of a sustainable and responsible treatment of the environment that we are living in.

While here we want that you feel part of the space and enjoy yourself most of all. We have both backgrounds and are always thrilled to elaborate activities in groups with the most joy in seeing the unexpected results at the end.
The current tasks you would be helping us with are;
+ Building our communal kitchen/living space - We are using materials from the land
+ Finishing the areas for animals(fences)
+ Planting / creating new beds specially in less fertile soil
+ Help with the recycling of dry material ( with strong importance to prevent wild fires)
We have a tipi with a double bed and the large tent with 2 bedrooms(when needed). Each space is located in its own private area. There is a communal kitchen in the middle of the garden, food will be provided while you here, we have mainly a vegan diet but happy to accomodate to any wishes.
In the proximidity there is a lake, hiking routes are to every direction, the beach is located 15min(drive away), Ria formosa is a wonder to visit.
