    Help

    We are looking for strong people that prefer living participating in a healing earth project then over being free to go out and about.
    We ask a minimum commitment of 1 month, with 25h/week of work in exchange for room and provisions for 3 vegetarian meals/day.

    Help building a food forest garden involves preparation of the soil, selecting garden green material, chopping it for composting, mulching, biochar and, when it’s ready, taking it to the ground where weeding, mulching, drilling and digging can take place.
    Watering, grass/hedges cutting, improving walking paths are also part of the garden maintenance. Pool maintenance, painting, technical works can also take place at the working hours.

    Possibility to stay for a longer term involvement as Coordinator / Team Member.

    What else ...

    Our project is not for profit, it has no economic goals. We are enjoying an active and creative life, growing as much as possible our own organic health food, using solar energy, and creating a little paradise where we can share with friends.
    We are situated in the Algarve, between Lagoa *️️️️️) and Porches in a natural area. Beautiful coast with many beaches nearby (4 km). We have a large swimming pool, terraces, gardens where each of us can enjoy free time in a quiet space.
    *️️️️️) Not to be confused with Lagos. We are not in a surfing place.
