  • Description

    Description

    Live in vehicles always welcome.

    We´re looking for help with a 20 ha permaculture project born in 2008. The land comprises agricultural and forestry land, all of which we intend to make productive over the coming months and years.

    We keep pigs and poultry, and have cats and dogs as domestic pets, all of whom need lots of attention.

    We´re located in a beautiful peaceful location, but are within walking distance of the village. We're lucky to have a good range of local facilities close by, including wi-fi internet, and are easy to reach via public transport.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Your hosts live and teach permaculture, hosting PDCs and other courses on site. Here you'll have an opportunity to experience practical application and be part of maintaining and developing an emergent project.
    We attract visitors from around the world so you can socialise on site or walk to our local bar in the next village.

  • Help

    Help

    Current projects include renovating the house, installing irrigation systems including RAM pumps, expanding and maintaining our vegetable gardens, planting native trees, building animal shelters, clearing forest, soil improvement and, well, just about everything else!! There's no shortage of different things to do, and lots of variety. Both skilled and unskilled help welcomed, experience isn´t required. We ask that guests stay for a minimum of two weeks, and preference will be given to those who can stay for longer.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have camping space and basic caravan / truck accommodation. Live in vehicles very welcome. It's important to realise that our facilities are basic and this is not the place to visit if you're looking for luxury.

    We´re happy to accommodate children with prior discussion, and we´re pleased to work with larger groups (eg Scouts, youth groups).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We usually host a number of volunteers at any one time, and run permaculture and related courses in the summer months, so this can be a great place to socialise as well as chill out. We speak English at home, but there´s plenty of opportunity to practice your Portuguese if you would like.

    Wifi internet available in local village.
