    Hello! We are Carina, Sérgio, Maria, Jil and Siddártha, we are portuguese living in the southeast of Portugal, in Serra de Serpa, in Alentejo.

    Monte is a 10 hectare property, isolated, a 20km from Serpa (city), it was abandoned for 18 years, and now we want to re-build it, we are in the begining of our project, so there's many things to do, we want to do a foodforest, to have some food and stability here, to restore the land that is very dry, to clean and restore the houses, to create a place full of biodiversity.

    In the moment we are looking for some help with our children, and some help around the house with cooking. Someone to do some construction work, to do gardening, and nursery trees.

    We love nature, and respect for all living beings, we try to live in a sustaintable way, respecting the place that we are living in, so we want that the people that come to here do the same.

    We speek portuguese, english, some french and spanish.
