We are a family off 2 (soon to be 3), our names are Tom (belgian 30yo) and Ana (portuguese 25yo). We and our 2 dogs and 3 cats are living on a beautiful piece off land in Benfeita. Located in the serra do Açor mountains in central portugal. Its very rural and full off nice little villages, rivers and streams. We are converting a practicly empty agricultural land in a permaculture paradise and start a eco camping on the land. For this we are still in the process off building the shower and toilet facilities and landscaping the terrain. On top off that where in the middle off building our house. Everything is done with natural materials sutch as stone, wood, clay, sand,... we also have a vegetable garden that needs loads off weeding! So plenty off work! we realize we can't do all off this alone but having a tight budget its not possible to go and hire people. And thats why we're here 😁
We offer food and accommodation (and of course experience and knowledge) in exchange for help around the land and with building.
We hope to find some nice volunteers here that are willing to come lend us a hand or 2. Hope to meet u soon, Tom and Ana.

For now we mainly would need help with things such as gardening, landscaping and natural construction. However there's other kind of tasks workawayers can do around the land.

Workawayers will stay with us at the quinta in a caravan (only 2 acomodations) or their own tent/van. Theres a temporary small kitchen space in the workshed to cook. Main meals will be provided by us but we expect people to buy their own snacks and such. Untill the camping showers are build u can wash urself in the shower inside the truck we live in atm.
In the time off, workawayers can visit a couple of natural sights that exist near Benfeita, most are 5 mins away by car or half an hour if walking. You have traditional all xisto villages, natural waterfalls and protected national parks. Plus you also have a bunch of swimming spots along the river Alva.

We have a field in front of the house where workawayers can park their vehicles.
We accept workawayers with pets, however they will have to be sociable with cats and other dogs.
