Hey everyone! I'm Sorrel and I have a little girl, Willow.
We moved to Portugal 2 years ago and since then we have built an earthbag house, made a beautiful garden, done a lot of construction projects and created a (seasonal) social hub which involves renting out a campervan, a small campsite and biweekly cinema nights. Winters, are more quiet however. We love it here and there is an amazing community in the valley we live in, with other workaways, social events here and in other local venues and a lot of nature.
At the moment, my daughter and I live in a renovated stone house which belongs to my brother. He sometimes visits us but he lives on another piece of land most of the time. My daughters father lives on the adjacent piece of land in the earthbag house. We have chickens and a cat and there are a few dogs that live in the Valley.
We can share lots of knowledge with you about growing and making and we hope to include you in the process as I make this place more comfortable for Willow and I.
I am looking for a couple/ two friends/a mum and child / a family.... who likes children, enjoys nature, wants to learn about and be involved with growing food, wants to build stuff, relax and hang out with people in the evenings, cook, want to learn about eco-building and enjoys making places beautiful with creative arts. You will have your own van and space with drinking water, so you can be private if you want to be.
I can provide two meals a day in exchange for help on the land, we wont work hard! only a few hours a day. The weekends are usually all for events and parties but it depends on the week.
I ask that all shared meals are vegan or vegetarian.
We also ask that you either bring your own plant based soaps and other bathroom products or use ours. All our water is reused and we do not want it contaminated with any chemical products so we ask you not to bring them.
Apart from this, we are very laid back and want you to enjoy your stay with us!
We look forward to meeting you!

This is an opportunity to learn about community living, gardening and caring for children and animals. Castelo Branco is only 10 minutes drive from the land and there is plenty to do and see there.
En este proyecto podría haber niños. Para obtener más información, consulta nuestras directrices y consejos aquí.
At the moment I would like to build up the vegetable garden, improve the guest area and convert the underside of my house into a bedroom. I would also love to learn Portuguese and get help looking after my daughter by providing her with people to play with and new people to learn from.
I'm not certain what jobs there might be to do, but I would just love to have companions to chat to sometimes in the evenings, share meals together, share living and parenting responsibilities like cooking and cleaning as well as maintaining the land and keeping it a healthy and thriving ecosystem.

Currently there is a van with a double mattress. It is too small for a family so an extra tent would be needed if there were children.
There is a great train and bus connection service from Lisbon to Castelo Branco and I am happy to come and pick you up.
