We are an holistic education project located in a village 12 Km from Vila Verde, 12 km from Ponte de Lima and 20 km from Braga, Portugal. A group of children get together every day for a learning experience about the inner and outside (maths, languages, sciences, etc.) world.
The educators are teachers, parents and volunteers and are learning as much as the children about relationships, life and education.
We need help in our work, now in maintenance, gardening, cooking (plant based), video creation, taking care of a land we bought to build an eco community/retreat centre, but volunteers are welcome to propose education activities as well.

DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play

They will be integrated in an holistic education project in Portugal where children are respected, in a natural and beautiful environment.

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
