    Descripción

    Dear volunteer, please be so kind to read our description carefully.

    Our organic/agro tourism project is close to the coast situated just in the back of a beautiful fisherman´s village called Santa Luzia, five kilometers away from Tavira. We grow vegetables and have a small orchard and are interested in agriculture and self-sufficiency. As part of a cooperative, we sell our products on the market of Tavira. The farm forms part of an eco-tourism rental company.

    Since recently the farm is being managed by two former volunteers, Elias and Laura.
    They work together with Gyula, who too has extensive experience in organic agriculture and has been working on the lands here for 15 years.

    We are looking for enthusiastic and energetic people, who are not afraid of physical tasks and are able to live and help in groups. Having some previous experience is a plus. Our preference goes to people over the age of 22. Volunteers are asked to help from Monday to Friday, five hours a day, usually in the morning. Besides a variety of seasonal tasks, such as carob and olive harvests etc., the principal activity is weeding.

    We will supply you with vegetables from the farm and basic groceries for cooking. Meat, snacks and alcohol are on your own expense. We ask you to self-cater, however we are open to occasional shared meals.

    You will have the possibility to experience living in an old Algarve-style farmhouse and some converted container houses with all basic facilities. This means that you might not have as much privacy, as some of the rooms are interconnected. The living spaces (living room, kitchen, bathroom) are shared, and you might have to share a bedroom as well. You are also welcome to bring your tent or caravan. There is a pool table, a washing machine and a beautiful beach just at your doorstep. Please be aware that we have limited wifi in the farm, the closest place with internet is located in the village.

    Please do realize you will be in a rural environment; there are many animals around. For the winter times, please take boots and warm clothing for the evenings.

    Thank you for your attention and see you soon!

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We show you farming tricks, teach you some skills, just generally show you a bit how life goes on a farm. There are many different nationalities at any given time here, which makes the dynamics interesting. We want you to enjoy your time here, but do keep in mind that it is not a free holiday, we expect you to do the tasks in a reasonable amount of time. After help time ends at 13.00, you are free to do whatever you want and explore the area.

    You will have the possibility to experience living in an old Algarve-style farmhouse. This means that you might not have as much privacy, as some of the rooms are interconnected. The living spaces (living room, kitchen, bathroom) are shared, also in the separate living area with container houses. You are also welcome to bring your tent or caravan. In the winter it can get cold, so take some warm clothing and boots.

    We are situated in the Rio Formosa natural reserve, surrounded by many beautiful beaches, various castles, mountains & one of the greatest bird watching sites in the world. There are lots of beautiful places to see around the area. Tavira is a beautiful town with lots of character and has a few bars which are more lively in the summer, yet winter time is very beautiful and relatively warm compared to the rest of Europe. Trains come and go from Tavira as well. So it is fairly easy to get around in your free time.
