  • Description


    Hi Dears!

    After years of traveling i came to this amazing farm with my daughter to create a beautiful, harmonic & creative, green & self-sufficient homebase.

    We've just put up a 8 meter Dome where magic & healing will happen. For everyone who whishes to take part.
    I try to live a more concious and deeper connected life, Full of freedom. In these years and this project coming out of the depths of my heart I dedicated myself to nature - reconnection to what we are and can be, self healing & exploration.
    We two (33 & 11) are a young family accompanied by 2 lovely dogs, Horses, free living rabbits, Cats and usually friends or guest's around at the land.
    We live vegetarian and vegan and having our amazing Garden in abundance working on.
    Here you will find Natural building, some permaculture much openness to discuss mind altering substances as a tool, possiblity for workshops or ceremonies (only in wintery) alternative ways of education & learning, lots of silence, starry Nights, animals, lovely people and the ocean is a drive but a short one. Its about 20 min drive to the stunning wild coast of South - west Portugal and different amazing beaches, surf spots, typical south Portuguese small and bigger towns with lots of bars, cafes and an amazing international community around.
    In my area you can join many special events n it's easy to meet an international community of beautiful and interesting people and beautiful nature to explore.
    Close to my Land you can find an small lake to swim in the middle of old cork trees and gentle rolling hills.

    The work on the land and I require physically and mentally stable people.
    Me and the friends or people to help here are working hard and a lot. It can be sweaty and dirty and so inspiring to do.
    Please only apply if you don't mind physical work and getting yourself dirty.
    ( I got a hot shower you will be invited to use).

    I'm working from home so I might be around the 2 hectar land mostly. Still I have things to Do, a daughter & a life I might not be there all the time. But sometimes I would love to show you some places or take you to events if you like.
    I will enjoy some evenings beeing together and do whatever comes up,music or talking, fires or night walks or sunset beach swims or whatever and some evenings I will wanna spend on my own or only with my daughter.
    Please only apply if you can enjoy yourself as well. Your free to roam around the land and surrounding area as much as you want.

    When you apply please let me know which kind of help you offer. Thank you 💚
