We are a small garden on the River Ocreza in Portugal. We are building a network of neighboring landowners sharing resources and work to create a fruitful garden. We are appealing to people who want to transition from urban to natural life. This is our second year on the land so work is varied and in a family setting. So far, we are one Family from Israel with partners from Germany and Russia. We offer a tent by the river and meals.
