    Description

    Hi Dears!

    After years of traveling i came to this amazing farm with my daughter to create a beautiful, cozy creative green homebase and later also a space where magic can happen.
    In my mind are varieties from ayahuasca & changa zeremonies, free education Workshops for kids, eco workshops, jam sessions and Dance nights.
    There is so much from what we want to life different, trying to live a concious life -
    Full of freedom. My daughter is a free schooling kid so we are looking for volunteers who come to do workshop and share knowledge with my daughter. Can be language skills, crafts, building a treehouse, making Alchemie, Martial Art - let us know what you would like to do.
    With us (30&8) are 2 lovely dogs, 4
    horses and 4 nice mouse hunters.
    We live vegetarian and having our own Garden working on.
    We are 20 min to the beach and different amazing beaches, surf spots, typical south Portuguese small and bigger town with lots of bars, cafes and nice people around.
    In my area you can join nice pizza & humus parties, jam session where you can meet more nice people and beautiful nature to explore.
    Close to.my Land you can find an amazing small lake in the middle of old cork trees.
    I can also take you for a ride.
    We are a young family, we are dedicated our life to maintain this simple, nomadic Lifestyle and I'm looking for help to do that.
    I don't need volunteers that a looking for a cool place to just hang out. I need help that needs physically and mentally stable people who are also fine with just themselves.
    I'm busy with many things and will do my best to help you have a great time at our land but I will not entertain you 24/7.
    Please notice that our place is in the nature and calm.
    The village is about 45 min walk. To get to the beaches you will need to take a bus, you can come with us when we are going or the best is to bring your own car if you wanna spend a lot of time outside the land after the work.
    I'm working from home so I might be there mostly but as I have a job it's important that you can work on your own also.
    I have a bike that you can use during you stay.

    Sure we will hang out together and have some fun.
    Please just apply if you are ok with my requests.

    We have a tiny caravan that needs to be build from the inside (simple) with wood and natural materials. A bed, a little kitchen, some shelf's, little outdoor space.

    Sanitary is a dry wc.
    We appreciate our calm and simple way of life and it's important for us to find people who
