  • Description



    We are a portuguese family of four, living in Algarve and we are keeping a permaculture project.

    We need help with organic gardenning, care for the chickens, for five hours a day, and you are free all weekend.

    We are in Tojeiro, 3km from Marmelete, 20km from Aljezur, you can go to the beach in your free time and we are 25km from Portimão too.

    Main things happening: permaculture, worm farming, organic gardening, food forest, natural construction, bio chickens, cooking, fermenting foods, healing.

    There is a big community in front of our land, you can get there walking 1 minute, to meet other workawayers, have a drink, whatever :)
