  • Description

    Description

    Welcome to our place - a magical land in the south of Alentejo region in portugal.
    A place where we create an alternative lifestyle - based on harmony between nature, humans & community.

    we are a small family of three, Or (32), Noam (32) and our little one, Nayo (2.5), living nature.
    Three years ago we started developing the land with a vision to form our own kind of paradise. this paradise is based on three foundations - the individual, the community and the land.

    LAND - our goal is to restore the native forest and create a diversed food forest within. Putting an intention of empowering the ability of the land to retain water. we belive that lush and healthy forest will lead to lush and healthy life. We wish to take care and bring love to the land that hosts us, help to restore all that was lost over decades of man interference. Over the years we have restored old wells, built a dam, planted diversity of trees, bushes & vegetables to achive a full ecosystem.

    COMMUNITY - we choose to live life that is shared - where we are choosing in concious communication and sharing from our hearts. Day by day we are working together, eating together jaming and exchanging life experiences.
    We welcome guests and volunteers that wish to be part of our dream.

    INDIVIDUAL - as same as every plant shines his beauty and thrive in his natural enviroment - so are we, human beings. we are aiming to create a spacefull and safe enviroment, a great playground for each individual to shine his/her beauty and to explore yourself.

    We are very proud of what we have done over the years, and we would love others to join our project, experience life differently and manifest themselves harmoniously with nature through reforestation,permaculture, natural building and community life. we gained a lot of knowledge about permaculture, agroforestry and community life - we are happy to share it with others. We would like to invite those who are curious and willing to participate in our vision.

    We recommend you to visit us for two weeks at minimum, join our liferoutine and participate in a big project. At the moment we are putting a special effort in restoring an old ruin house. Old Stone Foundation, combined with mud and wood are taking place together in this project.
