    Beschreibung

    Hi, we are Claudia and Bart. Our farm is in the early days of development as we just bought it in early 2022. Its situated in the Natural Park about 10 min from Odemira, it is very peaceful & beautiful & a great area to go for long walks in nature, possibly leading you to the banks of the Mira river which isnt far away.

    There is already a decent size garden with a lot of mature fruit trees, but it is a big land and we are now step by step starting different projects to work towards our long term vision for the land.

    Our long term vision for the land is something along the lines of an organic (permaculture) farm & artist retreat where people can come and stay short & long term to practice their art discipline without many distractions and with beautiful nature around. We both enjoy circus arts and practice things like juggling, slack lining, hula pooping & more. Eventually we also want to be able to host and teach an occasional workshop, think of circus related workshops but also yoga, meditation & tai chi.

    Bart has done a permaculture course and we aim to incorporate permaculture principles into our land development.


    Some of the things we are working on at the moment and need help with:

    - constructing terraces
    - water management (swales, drains)
    - stone retention walls
    - pond construction for ducks
    - cleaning the land
    - weeding
    - making plant cuttings
    - checking for ripe fruits & vegetables & collecting them
    - processing fruit
    - collecting sheep shit in the field for the garden
    - and a lot of other different small farming jobs & projects


    It is warm here, it will be nice to have a hat with you to work outside.


    If you think you might want to volunteer with us please read the rest of our profile before sending a request!



    Looking forward to meet you!

    We have a lot of different jobs to do since our farm is still very young.


    Some of the things we are working on at the moment and need help with:

    - constructing terraces
    - water management (swales, drains)
    - stone retention walls
    - pond construction for ducks
    - cleaning the land
    - weeding
    - making plant cuttings
    - checking for ripe fruits & vegetables & collecting them
    - processing fruit
    - collecting sheep shit in the field for the garden
    - and a lot of other different small farming jobs & projects

    Some of the work is quite physical so you need to be ok with that. If you have some (specific) knowledge or some experience in gardening/ permaculture or anything else that might be useful on a farm let us know beforehand, it isnt a requirement though. On occasion we might need some help in the kitchen to prepare a meal.

    You need to have a good level of English.

    We are looking for volunteers that want to stay 2 weeks or longer. Please state in your message how long you would like to stay and we can see what is possible. If for some reason the cooperation does not work well for either party they should voice that concern asap so we can see if it can be improved, if not we will go our separate ways without hard feelings.

    We are looking for volunteers who are responsible, independent and dont mind a bit of physical work. We expect 5 hrs of work a day, 5 days a week (mon-fri), a couple of hours in the morning and a couple of hours after the lunch break.
