  • Description


    I'm Rosário and I am the responsible for Monte do Álamo project, a 7ha beautiful farm near Tavira, Algarve. Together with my daughters, husband and friends we have been developing this certified organic farm and preparing it to be ecological sustainable.
    The farm has carrob, almond, fig and olive trees, some very old and some new. We have also created a vegetable garden. New works for 2019 envolve green fences, compost preparing and the poultry house.
    Me, my daughter Inês, her boyfriend Luis work here also and will accompany the workawayers.

    We know Algarve region and also other parts of Portugal very well and can give the travellers all the touristic information about those places. They can colaborate and learn from it in an agroecological project that envolves the whole farm and has being developed for 4 years. We also expect to learn from the travellers experience and also learn more about their own countries.
