Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
You can feel yourself free and chill in our place, all nationalities, genders and brains are welcome. We are vegetarian, so we cook a lot of vegetable dishes basing on the Portuguese tradicional cousine, we would love to share veggie recipes and have a picnic together with volunteers. We respect any life style, but kindly asking not to cook meat in the house.
The most lovely thing you can get here is connecting with Nature, teaching how to take care of animals, learn about local plants and gardening, and of course try fresh bio fruits and vegetables from our garden.
Also you can join our yoga practice and workout or offer your own lesson for the other volunteers and residents of the farm. Sometimes we have events and parties at our land, for volunteers the entrance is free.
As a local we know a lot of trails and secret spots at Arrabida parque, so be free to ask how to get there )
We speak Portugues-English-Russian fluent, and will be happy to help you with your language practice.
Urgent- We're need someone with some Thatching/Colmo/Le chaume/Dachdecken/соломенная крыша/ knowledge that can help us develop some cool ideas
Welcome to our small farm in Arrábida natural parque! It´s a 3,5 hectare family land, 40 minutes from Lisbon situated near the beautiful beaches and cute fishing village Sesimbra.
We are young active couple in love with nature, yoga, art and animals. We have a lot of dogs, goats, chicken, ducks, porquinhas da India, none of them to eat. We are mostly vegetarian.
We have fruit trees, small vegetable garden and a lot of free space where would be nice to start permacultura or forest garden project. So if you are experienced in this area, warmly welcome )
At the moment we are creating a small camping spot at our olive tree garden, so we need help with carpentry constructions, painting and decoration.
Also there are a lot of general farm tasks and maintenances as feeding animals, cleaning the space, watering, painting, gardening etc.
We ask for help around 6 hours/ 4 days per week, but you are free to change you schedule if you need. The rest of the day you are free to do what you want, we can advise you the best places to explore nearby, Arrábida Natural Park is ideal for outdoors as climbing, diving, surf, hiking, cycling (we have 2 bicycles for volunteers), or just chilling at the beach.
