My partner Marla and I are starting a huge permaculture regeneration project in Portugal. We are reforesting land with the native species, that was once a Pine plantation. We are rebuilding some of the ruins and making a large forest garden to grow food and medicine. Marla is a herbalist so she is preparing to grow a big medicine garden. There is a river at the bottom of the land which needs gentle loving care-taking and we may also find some hidden spots to build sacred spaces into. We are vegetarian (mostly vegan) and we love to make tasty and fresh food each day. We don't drink alcohol but there is a river bar only a 10 minute cycle ride away (we have bikes you can use)!

Help with Eco Projects
Being part of a restoration project. We are nature awareness advocates and spend time being still listening to what nature needs. Marla loves sharing and talking about medicinal plants. We love listening and hearing other peoples experiences and what makes people happy. We have spring water a plenty on our land to drink too.
We are looking for builders, carpenters, cabinet makers, eco-builders and designers for building projects. We would love to do eco-builds and use alternative building techniques. We are also looking for gardeners, and people who are bright and happy to do different tasks, anything from gardening, shopping, path making and lots of cutting back so we can see the land more clearly.
Bell tent and Tipi tent until some restoration projects are complete.
We live near a beautiful big river that is a short distance away, it joins the smaller river on our land and they are plenty of swimming spots a short cycle ride away. There is also the Serra De Estrella Natural Park with beautiful mountains and rivers, a wonderful place to walk in nature. It is called Serra De Estrella, which means Mountain of Stars in English. The mountain twinkles with quartz crystal and is very beautiful.
