    Description

    We are Daria and Rui.
    We decide to look for different way of live and start our organic farm 2 km from the ocean.
    We are nature lovers, trying to live in the most possible ecological way.
    Daria is civil and enviromental engineer who make soaps and yoga.
    Rui is geologist who can make fire from two sticks and hang drums from gas bottles.

    We would like that volonteers are doing what they feel their skills are (or want to lern) if You want to paint a wall, a picture, table, doors, build something, do gardening or put some seasheels on the wall thats ok! We are looking for creativity!

    We have a dog called Chita and we sometimes accept volounteers with dogs ;)
