We are a group of friends, 2 couples and 3 babies, living in the countryside of Portugal, in the region of Amarante, next to Porto.
Coming from differents countries, we experience community living in the middle of the nature.
We are currently renovating two houses with the target of living sustainably.
We are a branch of a cultural association based in the centre of Porto.
The place where we live is an old vineyard farm, that has been abandoned for several years.
Located close to the city center, it is still "isolated" in the middle of beautifull landscape, with an amazing view over the river Tamega.
There are two bigger buildings, two garages that we are transforming into workshops and one shed.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Because we are coming from diferent contries : Portugal, Great Britain, Sweden and Belgium, you will then learn to live with people coming from different background.
Because this project is part of an cultural association based in Porto, you will also benefit from expérience in organising event, participate to concert and so on.
Each one of us have different skills, and work in different area, as art, carpentry, sewing, playing music, etc...
We try to build an sustainable farm, including ecological building, organic garden ( including permaculture, biodynamic techniques ), little tips to reduce energy consuming, etc...
You would not be left alone to tasks, but we are looking for people to join us in our daily life, which can include anything from cooking, cleaning and babysitting to gardening, construction, renovation and much more.
