    *️️️️️Wanted: artists / sculptors!
    We are looking for a person or couple to join us for 3 weeks in April / May and sept / Oct to create sculptures, murals, mosaic and general design features around the land. Please provide examples of your previous work.

    Join us by the lake for a sundowner after a satisfying day of working on the land! Or enjoy a post work swim or surf at one of the many local, pristine, white sand beaches. There is also wild swimming available a 10 minute stroll along the canal.

    Stay as our guest, learn about off grid living and enjoy pristine, wild beaches superb for surfers and sunbathers alike!

    We are a family of three, with a five year old daughter, currently unschooled, living in an off grid farm in the stunning Alentejo region of Portugal.

    There is a lake, creek and canal on our land, a pine forest, a cork oak forest and an, as yet, unexplored 'jungle'!

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Here you will learn the inside track on real life, off grid and sustainable living! We can't claim to have it all mastered yet, but are happy to share our knowledge and experience of leaving city life to Go Green..

    We will be applying permaculture design principles to growing our own food and working with the environment and animals to create a pesticide and chemical free garden.
    Aaron has a certificate in permaculture and Salli is formerly a coach and trainer of NLP and we are happy to share our skills and experience to aid you on your own personal journey.
    Close by (4km down a dirt track) we have the pristine, wild and untourested beaches of Praia Do Carvalhal and Paia Da Amália . A further 10 minute drive in either direction and you have the beautiful surf and sun spots of Odeceixe and Zambujeira Do Mar.
    We will happily share a taster of local life, including the local markets and social gatherings.

  • Alojamiento


    The accommodation offered will be a large and comfortable bell tent with proper mattress and bedding. There is an outside kitchen, shower and compost toilet for your exclusive use and you’ll be situated in a pine forest overlooking the lake. Washing can be done in our machine and filtered drinking water is available. Our volunteers will receive lunch and dinner on work days of 5 hours. A total of 25 hours p/w. Couples welcomed.
    We will share communal meals a few days of the week and at other times provide food for you to prepare for yourselves.
    Wifi is available outside the main house.
    Volunteers should provide their own vehicle as we are pretty rural and cannot provide transport. However, if you enjoy walking it's a pleasant 1/2 hour stroll along the canal into the local village of Brejao which has a shop and restaurants.
    We will also gladly accept volunteers in camper vans and provide a power hook up. Filtered water and wifi outside the main house. Families considered.
    Volunteers must have their own travel / health insurance
