    Description

    hello, we are Eran and Neta, and we want to welcome you to our little farm, in south Alentejo, surrounded by nature.
    Eran has been living in Portugal for the last 7 years, and bought this farm in 2020.
    before that he was like you, working and volunteering on eco projects permaculture farms and intentional communities for many years, learning many skills, both practical and emotional.
    he is a carpenter and permaculture designer. in the past he was working in a technical special effects for Cinema, building solar systems, wood houses and irrigation systems.
    Neta is practicing and teaching ‘family constellation’ and ‘a course in miracles’ for many years, and has moved to Portugal last year.
    we have 2 sweet and friendly cats.

    we believe in simple life and that work should be fun.
    what we are building is a paradise playground, a place where practical simplicity can meet creativity, honest communication and fun.

    we are aiming to create two main spaces on the land:
    *A makerspace that is an open workshop for people to bring in their work and share the space or learn new skills like carpentry, welding and DIY permaculture solutions.
    *A space where we can research ourselves and our relations, through contact improvisation, family constellation and other healing practices.

    we are inviting creative, open minded, positive human beings, to join us.
    it should go without saying ... we are LGBTQ+ friendly :)

    for us life and work is play.
    come to play :)
