  • Description

    Description

    The project is an initiative of a non profit organization for the social development of emotional inteligence, so there might be other activities happening in the farm like emotional education, art therapy or other kind of workshops, small concerts, pizza nights or other small events we can think of.

    The farm was started in April 2021 with the goal of creating a permaculture teaching farm that could welcome schools, families and the public in general to be introduced to this type of regenerative agriculture or participate in any of the related workshops we'll provide, but also with the intent to produce organic helathy food to be cooked directly on the spot, for the team, guests and volunteers of an adventure sports retreat to be open by the end of 2022, beginning of 2023.

    All plots, gardens and orchards are beeing implemented from scratch since April 2021 by a permacultor with years of experience, who will coordinate the project and visit once in a while, when we have new stuff to lear. The idea is to plant as much variety of fruits and veggies we can, so it will be a great oportunity to learn permaculture with a hands on aproach.

    The farm is located in the beatifull area of Sesimbra, 1,5km from the beach and 2km from Lagoa de Albufeira lagoon. It's a quiet rural area wich gets busy in the summer and where you can do many diferent sports activities, like rockclimbing, surf, kitesurf, paddle, scuba and paragliding.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Caravan with solar pannel in the farm, dry toilet and shower avaliable.

    Our farm is already producing most of what we eat. All the extra food expenses are assured by me and the volunteers can choose to cook in the caravan or to have some meals at our place.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Since I have other projects I prefer to keep the workdays to 3 per week, full day, instead of every morning. This will also leave volunteers the possibility of exploring the area and possible activities further. You can just beach around, visit the historical centers in sesimbra or go for some of the adventure sports that can be done around, like rockclimbing, cliff diving, paragliding, kitesurf, or just have some fun on kayak, paddle or scuba diving trips.
