  • Description

    Description

    We have an ecological open space in central Portugal run by a family with four kids. We like to welcome energetic people of all ages and experience levels to live and work with our family to establish a healthy and sustainable place for our four children to grow up in.
    We are gardening and caring for a little herd of goats and we are also in real need of help with daily jobs that come with a flock of children. There are also natural building projects going on where we can teach stone and clay building techniques and would be happy for some more carpentry expertise or simply two more strong and willing hands.

    There is much to be picked up here in the areas of natural building, crafting, cooking, gardening, dairy and goat management.
    Being a multi cultural family we find ourselves combining various traditions with a smile and a sweet vibe.

    Help

    There are various tasks around from householding to gardening and goat herding to fencing and building depending on your skill and interests there is always something to be done. The most important for us is that you are ready and able to manage your self and your work without supervision and seek rather communication than orders. There are also four kids around aged 12, 11, 8 and 2 who are happy to be inspired by cool projects and activities.
