  • Descripción


    We are a family of 2 persons, me and my son. We have animals that include dogs, cats and miniature horses, besides chicken. We own an 8 .000 sq m orchard, near Vila Franca do Campo in a small parish called Ribeira das Tainhas.
    We have a very nice ocean and a beautiful view over Vila Franca do Campo. Also a nice calm little beach two steps away.
    We are slowly implementing a permacultural regenerative system in our garden. We are open to having natural building skilled people here for experiences and workshops.

    Our daily life moves around the garden tasks and taking care of our animals. Since we are still implementing structural work, the tasks are more related to that process.
    We kindly ask you to read carefully the following text before applying to our place.

    House Rules

    We share spaces and the house for now. So we have some basic rules to attend

    Managing resources in the most efficient way it's very important for us. We require that our volunteers are very focused and self-driven humans that are already self-trained in resilient behavior. So we need you to understand the basic rules of rubbish separation and have also knowledge about the rational consumption of energy and water.

    We expect you to work diligently 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. The necessary help in preparing meals is not included in the working hours unless your volunteer job is cooking.

    Kitchen and food
    You can choose to prepare your own meals with the given ingredients. We use what mainly comes from our garden and seasonal ingredients.
    If we have to buy, we use local produce as much as we can
    We have preferably a plant-based diet. Consuming fish or meat with ethical, sustainable origin. Dairy products are also consumed rationally.
    It is expected for you to clean your dishware according to house rules.
    Water and energy must be used in a very efficient way, so when cleaning dishware, pots and pans we avoid permanent running water in the sink. We scrub and only after we rinse.
    Hot water is only needed for greasy stuff.
    We also ask to not change our organization of things because everything is organized to be functional and efficient according to the tasks.
    We also use the dishwasher in an efficient and organized way.

    Accommodation and clothes Management

    You will be given a room that we expect to be cleaned once a week.
    Before leaving you should clean your room. Vacuum it and clean it with water and soap.
    Bedding should be changed once or every two weeks
    We only allow full loads of laundry according to our sustainability schedule for clean energy consumption.
    Showers are 5 minutes long.

    Tasks and work

    We expect our volunteers:

    To work diligently for 5 hours
    Avoid chatting too much because this slows down the rhythm and focus accomplishing the tasks
    Ask for an explanation or demonstration if you don't understand what is asked
    Understand that sometimes repetitive tasks are needed
    Sometimes we have heavy tasks like digging or carrying heavy loads
    Understand that insects, worms, and animals are part of our daily life.
    Know that tools used during the tasks need to be cleaned and stored after finishing the tasks

    Thank you for reading this, we appreciate that
