Welcome singles/couples to medium / long term.
Welcome on our profile page! We're glad you made it...
We produce vegetables, fruits, olives for eating and olive oil, and we have a bunch of farm animals, all in the hidden treasure of Portugal that is the Alentejo region.
Now we are starting a new grove of arbutus orchard with a plantation using syntropic farming methods in order to be in balance with nature. So, we need volunteering help, for in the next coming years we can have beautiful fruits! For helping the trees in it's pollination we will host also a bunch of bee hives that will also offer us beautiful honey.
After the orchard plantation we will develop new projects in eco-building with superadobe, organic pool and try to go out off grid by working in our self sustainability in food, energy and water.
Alentejo has a long cultural history with many specifically regional traditions and food. Eating and cooking is a big part of life here, which you will experience during your stay here. Cooking is usually done together as a group effort. Our kitchen work is open to suggestions, with room for sharing traditional recipes and experimenting. Please note: if you are lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant, strict vegetarian and/or vegan, we will not able to accomodate you... (Sorry.)
The daily routines consist of feeding the animals, cleaning, cooking, gardening, projects, etc.
Our vegetable garden is a work in progress. Every year we imporove and build on the things that work and don't work. We invite you to bring some seeds with you to try! All experience and ideas suggestions are welcome!
We're open for volunteers year round, even during the winter time because we enjoy fantastic weather even then. (Maybe skip January though, unless you like rain...)
Work is done mostly during morning hours, afternoons are for sitting/talking/relaxing/exploring/own projects. There are bikes here for you to borrow.
The exact number of working hours is something we don't really think and care about. Sometimes it's 4, sometimes 8, but always with fun, that's important for us. We take the words of Gandhi to heart: "Love what you do, make your passion your profession, and you will never work a day in your life."
We welcome open minded people that want to share and exchange knowledge and enjoy the beauty of life in the countryside.
The bus connection from Lisbon airport is good. It takes a few hours, but it's easy to manage and it's a great ride. Contact us for details.
Feel free to send a message if you want more information. Hope to see you soon!
