    Description

    Hi there!
    My name is Adriana, I'm 23 years old and I am the co-creator of a Regenerative Agriculture Community Project called Happy Valley. I also work with aromatherapy, natural cosmetics and women empowerment.
    I live with my family in the country side, close by the ocean, less than 1 hour away from Lisbon, in Torres Vedras.

    We are happy to teach you portuguese, and my mother would love to learn some english :))
    You will have the opportunity to try local and typical food, maybe cook some bread in a wooden fire, and share some meals with other people form the neighborhood and learn some things about the way we do agriculture and and the way we live here. People are nice, welcoming and open-minded.
    I would also love to share my knowledge around natural products, personal/spiritual developement, empowerment and women's health, yoga, tantra, among other subjects :))

    Help

    So, around the house there always things to be done, specailly in the garden - sownig, harvesting, collecting and storing seeds, chop and drop, build some things, cut some branches...but also creating things! One of the things that I look forward the most is to have this place filled with arts! (in many forms), so I would love that people who volunteer feel free to CREATE! and do what they like to do the most, as much as possible! This is not my project, its everyone's!
    Besides that, you can also help with general things such as cleaning, cooking, preparing fermented food, maybe grocery shopping, feeding the cats and dogs,...
    Around the community, there are might also be some things you can help with, depending on what's is going on in the neighborhood.
    We are also planning some kind of gathering over here, so there is some planning to do, and help with that would be appreciated (and maybe with social media as well).

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have plenty of area where you can camp outside.
    Sometimes we have free beds inside the house as well. If my sister's room is free you can stay there. There is a bunk bed, so 2 people can stay. We have a tent for 2 people if you need, and the beds inside have everything (beddings and mattresses).
    Van campers are super super welcome here!! We love the vibe and have space for parking. That way you can keep your privacy and also use the facilities in the house of course! (also, I am looking forward to get my own van soon so it would be great to know people who are living that type of lifestyle already!)
    Kitchen, bathroom and living room are shared.
    Mind that I live with my parents and right next to us lives my grandmother and aunt.

    We provide 3 meals per day - breakfast, lunch and dinner, and you can take whatever is growing in the garden whenever you want :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live close to the beach, so you can go there, by bike or car. The beaches are good for surfing. Not far, there is a place where you can go skating and/or longboarding as well.
    We live around 30 minutes away from Ericeira - a world surf reservoir. The vibe there is really cool - nice bars and restaurants, a lot of van campers and surfers from all over the place stop there.

    Me myself, I see myself as a flexible, open-minded person, I love to travel, explore and to live close to nature! I am passionate about connecting with people from all over the place, sharing and learning. I like to live a simple life and have fun! I am also very dedicated to what I do so I can't always spend a looot of time with the volunteers and I really value my time alone as well :) But when i can't be around, my mother is happy to help and manage the work outside. She is lovely and very open-minded as well.
    I have been a workawayer myself and I would say that that makes me more mindfull about the workawayers thta might stay here.
