    Hello everyone!

    At this time of the year we can only host people with motorhome, able to have the comfort needed for the season!! We are in the mountains so our Winter is fresh :) not possible to camp !!
    Our family is part of a group of 17 people from all over the world that got themselves together to join forces and energy and make the difference that we want to see around! 
    2011 was the start of our big adventure, together we bought 40ha of land in the Beira Alta area of Portugal. 
    It is a very interesting project that energies flow from the individual towards the collective!! 
    We are still setting the physical, emotional and spiritual bases of our common spaces. ... 
    We are Dreamers, open-minded people and life followers, having like everyone and everywhere big challenges :) but for sure doing our best!!

    We are a family of two adults, 2 young adults (19) and a kid (6) , so the dynamics should respect the needs of the children to eat, play and rest!
    We have been in the process of building our nest!! and it has been a really nice experience!! we build our house and all the facilities around it!! The valley is 3km away from the next very smalllll village, so Have been also in the process of being in the middle of nature and have the individual peace, family peace and collective peace!! its not always easy as they say in the fairy tales!! :) but is very important to remind constantly that this is the DREAM and this is what we choose :D
    We ask you to bring, sleeping bag , environmentally friendly hygiene products, your snacks and little things that make you feel comfortable;

    The land is pure and wild, has 1,5 km of river that crosses with some waterfalls most of the year. We try as much as we can to be off-the-grid, we have only renewable energies as a source of electricity, compost toilets and water from a mine.

    Now we have this missions:
    -Harvest the sweet potatoes.
    -pickles. 
    - working in garden !!  :) we have a big beautiful garden! We do it biological and we try to do some biodynamic also!!
    -help in kitchen !
    -fire wood
    -clean forest

    We work a lot in keeping the budget very very low (with the three \"r\"s principle: recycle, reuse, repair :-)

    Now we have hot "real" shower :) , an amazing compost toilet and super cozy corners in the woods :D that's for sure!!

    Our preferences are:
    To host 2 helpers at the time!! 
    That helpers stay minimum 1 week!
    Work 5 hours p-day (but we can always see the group dynamic, it changes all the time!! ) :) 


    If you think it might be an experience for you and you are willing to help us please let us know soon in order to make a more realistic and proper plan for all of us!
    You can arrive any day till 8pm to Satão that is 10 km from us and we can pick you up! 
    There are buses Please communicate your intentions at least 1 week before you're coming.
    Thank you, even if only use your time to Read US :)
    with Love, 
    Li , Gui, Pepe, Zeze and Tomé
