We are an off grid, small farm in central Portugal. Donkey's, dog's, cat's, duck's and chicken's roam the land. There is a small veggie garden as well as plenty of yummy fruit trees olive, fig, pear and orange to name a few. We enjoy making music and game nights in the evenings and cooking home grown healthy food. We enjoy yoga, meditation and alternative healing methods. We are all very friendly, open minded and enjoy meeting people from all over the world.

We would love some help with on going projects, including building help carpentry and electricity. Help in the garden would be much appreciated especially people with any knowledge on permaculture. People who don't mind getting stuck in and getting their hands dirty. People who are great with all animals and happy smiley people, Anyone who has any creative artistic ideas and people who like cooking are very welcome as well as anyone with an interest in yoga or meditation.
