    Descripción

    We are a young couple with some experience on self-sufficient-living that in 2015 got a piece of land close to a small growing community of close friends in a beautiful valley at the highest mountains inside the biggest natural park of our country. We need help on creating a Natural Farm to support our small eco-community!

    Rita is a health-food enthusiast and loves to work with different kinds of art-craft. She likes to explore with Medicinal plants, Fermented food, ways of preserving food and appreciates doing basketry, wool-work and book-binding. Also likes to produce cleaning and hygiene products like natural detergents, soaps and salves. Walking in the nature, singing with friends and doing yoga are some of the other things she enjoys.

    Gonçalo is a nature lover with a passion for Permaculture and Natural Farming. Studied Organic Agronomy and has been practicing it since 2008, with the help of volunteers, interns and apprentices. He enjoys sharing and to make music with friends.

    Until now, we built two yurts for living, a greenhouse dome (toilet and nursery), recovered a ruin for storage and workshop, built a small kitchen, toilet, shower and shelter for volunteers and a stable for the farm animals. Made also a vegetable garden with huegel beds and a small food forest. We have the help of horse,goat, sheep and chickens to regenerate pasture where we plant trees and shrubs in order to convert it to an poly-crop system. Unfortunately in 2017 a massive fire went over this beautiful valley but in the same year we were blessed with our first home-birth daughter Dana. With us lives also 2 female dogs and 3 cats besides many wild ones.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    In north Portugal we have strong culture of family agriculture that is still practiced by beautiful old people and some young new amazing neighbors. You will meet some of those and can get to visit them to chill-out or help on farming maintenance in exchange for services, products or money and learn some knowledge or skills with joy!

    Alojamiento

    During March, April, May, September, October and November we need help for around 5 hours/day, 5 days/week according to goals. You will have a shelter with wood burner to sleep, hot-shower, dry-toilet and a small kitchen, that you can use for cooking breakfast and dinner ( we have lunch all together). We provide the same healthy ingredients we use for cooking our own food.
    During June, July and August we only need help for around 3 hours/day, 5 days/week according to goals, therefore we only provide accommodation (camping tent and mattress) and facilities (kitchen, dry toilet and solar shower) so, you buy your own food (we sell olive oil, fermented and dried vegetables, nuts, herbs, vegetables and eggs).
    There's also a natural pool in the stream and according to the season, mushrooms, edible and aromatic plants, berries, acorns and chestnuts.
    Please bring with you your own biodegradable hygiene products and/or you can buy our soaps.

    We are at north-central Portugal, in a mountain with two glacial valleys, a lot of water on lakes, rivers and streams, that you can follow to find abandoned farming and shepherd houses surrounded by wilderness. There's tow villages close to us: Linhares da Beira (+/- 5km), an historical place with a military castle, a local association, a craft-shop, a cosy bar, a gourmet restaurant and two hotels ; Figueiró da Serra (+/- 2km), with more vivacity has tow local associations, a grocery-shop, tow bars and a hotel with restaurant. We have a car that we use often to bring needs from outside but there's also a bus passing in Figueiró da Serra every day at 9am that goes to the closest town (Gouveia +/- 20km) and comes back at 5pm.
