  • Descripción


    We are a family of four people, with our dog Alma and the cats.
    We love the quiet life and peaceful nature, so we moved to the southwest of Portugal to start a new life in 2017. In 2021 we found this piece of land and have been cultivating our lives here ever since. We choose this spot because it's surrounded by charming ancient cork trees, beautiful simple villages, and close to the beautiful beaches of south west Portugal. We moved to our land that was not touched for 70 years and has been completely free from human intervention- for better or worse!
    We use local soil and natural materials for construction and try to work with nature and what it has to offer us. We cultivate a vegetable garden and act according to the idea of Pharmaculture for the soil, humans and nature.
    We are welcome also unvaccinated people.

    We are looking to meet people who wish to experiment with a true outdoor life, who are motivated to work with us and are open to learn. We are creating a new life together on this land- key word being new as we have only had it since 2021 :)
    If you have any experience with natural building and gardening it will be super helpful but we can provide the skills and will be happy to explain and teach. Many tasks revolve around your own maintenance and we are super happy to talk through the other projects in depth. Things you might expect to do :
    -keep the paths and shared spaces tidy and maintained
    -Gardening in the vegetable patch
    -helping in the homestead
    But things change quickly but we're always working on a new project on the land!
    The best part of the experience is the friends you do it with. It will be a simple life, close to nature, helping us build up the land and passing on your wisdom to our family, if this interests you. The children live with us, work with us, eat with us. They love the company of new people.
