    Description

    Ola guys!

    We are a small family living in the heart of South West Alentejo in Portugal, a very interesting alternative area close to Tamera and many small farms and communities that we are connected with.

    We are Ofir, originally from Israel, Emilia from Sweden and little Alva that was born here in Portugal with a beautiful home birth :)

    We live here together with friends and helpers that coming and going.

    We are artists and designers running our ethical clothes business from home and our aim is to create a self sustainable permaculture art community here together with a few more families.

    Our farm is very new and we love to welcome fresh energy to our place!

    We are Vegans since long time and very connected to healthy food and lifestyle, we like to eat healthy rich vegan food here in our place.

    We are both like to practice Yoga, meditation, we both massage therapist and have allot of connection to tantra practice. We like music and dance and what ever good vibe and joy.

    Emilia is a professional rawfood chef as well so if you are interested she can teach many nice things in this area!

    Ofir was a global traveler for many years, he travelled and worked in more than 20 countries around the world and got knowledge about many different areas.

    Alva is just a bit over one and a half years old, she like to smile a lot and is just super sweet!

    Our main focus right now is gardening and clay buliding, but we also have work in many other areas since we're building up the place from scratch.

    We wish that you as a volunteer will bring your unique gift and skills to our place and help in the area/s that feels most natural and inspiring for you!

    We live close to local markets, to the beach, a small lake and a beautiful paradise river called "pego das pias"

    We would like you to join us for a period of at least 2 weeks but we prefer longer and we will ask you to work around 4 hours a day 5 days a week.

    Since we eat here good and reach food we can't offer full sponse for the food expenses, we can cover part of it and part we will need your contribution as well.
    Since we use one kitchen and most of the meals we eat together we find it the best that each person contribute in 25 euro per a week plus what we put extra and with this money we can buy plenty of fruits and vegetables, nuts, coconut milk tahini and many other super food that most of it we buy organic.
    If you prefer do not contribute with money you can choose to buy your own food and in this case we feel that 3 hours a day will be fair.

    For more info please contact us by email :)
