    We live in a beautiful place, in nature with stunning sunsets. Next to this we also have swimming, beautiful walks as well as the local villages (walking distance) right on our doorstep it's a beautiful place to dive into Portuguese life.

    We love community and learning from others. We love to share our permaculture/ gardening, natural building & general knowledge of living in harmony with nature. We are also an unschooling family, so are very open to share any insights on that.
    As an active family you are always welcome to join with our Yoga, Running or Walking activities.

    There is always plenty of work on the land and in the garden. A lot is land maintainance, clearing, improving the soil, working on our annual garden as well as working with natural building techniques to create fencing and other projects we have on the go. In the next few months Rich will be building our wooden dome house and some help might be needed for this project too, We try to become self-sufficient and our annual garden is important to us. Any help with watching the kids is also very welcome.
    We generally work 5 days a week 5 hours a day (9-3 or 10-4) with an hours break. We hope whoever works with can work independentely as well as together.
