  • Description


    We are 4 friends trying to create a cool self suistainable life on our off the grid farm with the least amount of harm in the world.

    Hello everyone :-) Come join us to create magic! We are traveling the world the last 20 years and now building up a wonderland in South Portugal. Ideas happen day by day but one thing never changes, that we would like to be as eco friendly and respectful to nature as possible. Recycle, upcycle and love our planet. It would only make You happy to be here if u have these views.

    Food is vegetarian based from the local farmers market mainly.....but we are working hard on having enough to eat from our own gardens :-) Also flexible to talk and find the best (budget) options for everyone. Cooking will be done by whoever is in the mood in the common kitchen.

    If You are interested to leave ur footseps behind then lets help each other. Everyone from anywhere is welcome and appreciated :-) Cheers.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have been experimenting in permaculture, eco building, in general off grid living lifestyle the last 5 years. Also, we have traveled the country of Portugal, some of us speak the language but we are all learning, know about the beautiful places thats worth to visit and have many local friends.

    We are super happy to share everything we have learnt so far.

    At the moment we are looking for friends that wish to:

    do physical work cleaning the land for fire protection
    helping to build an outside clay baking owen
    do gardening including making new raised garden beds using permaculture techniques
    interested in eco building a clay/mud house, walls, roofs, from recyclled materials
    into filming/photagraphy and will help with documenting our steps
    do arts, crafts... etc. we are open for more ideas :-)
