We are Pedro and Nádia that started this agriculture project in 2012 when we returned to Pedro's birth town (Bragança) and wanted to revive the abandoned family lands.
Our family grew last years and we have with us Afonso (born in 2013) and Gaspar (born in 2016) that love farming.
We have several interests and working focuses:
- Bees, polinization and honey
- Condiment herbs
- small and wild fruits
- Vegetables inside and outside greenhouse
- Fruit trees
- Ecological construction
We are still in an implementation phase so we are happy to receive anyone who want to share and help to build this project.
This implies the work can be very diverse and that we will need to think and decide a lot on subjects.
Our inspiration is permaculture and we try to learn and help nature.
We have technical help in organic farming but most of the stuff we try to learn ourselfs
We dont have a schedule for us, since at the moment we are making as much as we can to get this project running.
We dont expect you to do the same amount of work we do, but the average of 5 hours a day.
We can provide you a bike.
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
We can share our agriculture project, help you to know the northeast of Portugal, share our points of view and challenges. Take you to the mountain river and other interesting places in the area.
Teach you a bit of Portuguese and organic farming.
This is a very diverse agriculture project so we have many different working areas concerning agriculture but also other non agriculture work that is part of implementing the landscape we want.
At the moment we need help in the followinig:
- picking vegetables and fruits
- Maintaining the vegetables and fruits
- Seeding and planting the vegetables and fruits for the late season in the outdoor and in the greenhouse
- Buiding small stone walls
- Help in the construction of the farm house
- Seeding mushrooms in wood logs
- Help in thinking and contruct ecological solution for the farmhouse
We live in the city, 5km from the farm
We have a 'new' old house in the vilage near the farm that is for the volunteers so you can have some independence. But we'll try to organize things together and share at least some meals from those some will be also in our house in the city.
The house in the vilage is a typical and simple village house with a fireplace, kitchen, bathroom, living room, dinning room (used currently as storage) and 4 bedrooms. There is also a balcony with a nice view.
The meals are prepared by the group. Usually we take turns in cooking so we can enjoy each culture flavours.
We have a vegetarian diet but you are free to add anything you want to it at your responsibility.
The group meals should meet everyone's diet, but at the volunteers house, the group decides.
We are an organic farm and that is our passion. We had other volunteering experiences and friends that give a hand.
