    ##Please only react if you really plan to come, we don’t mind spending time to reply but only if it’s not in vain!##

    We are a Dutch family with two home-schooled children. In summer 2017 we bought a piece of land near Aljezur where we want to realise our dream; a little paradise where we can live from the land. We first took our time to get to know the land and now it is time to feed the land, before the land can feed us…
    So, there is a lot of work to do and we need your help!

    We have a lot of projects to work on from big and intensive to small and ‘just in between jobs’. For instance

    - cleaning / taking care of the land
    - making more comfortable spaces on our camping field
    - build the outside kitchen / shower on the camping field
    - build or improve (pet) houses
    - rebuild or improve the swing (bigger!)
    - taking care of the vegetable garden / fruit trees
    - taking care of the donkies
    - help with (or take over) the cooking
    - build the greenhouse
    - repair the well

    A lot has already been done on our land, and a lot is still waiting for you! You will have quite a bit of freedom in how you want to spend your time. We do expect a certain amount of communication on what you (and we) are doing, we can do a lot together, but you are also able to a lot on your own just when you want to do it.

    We live in our self-sufficient bus and need you to be independent to. We use our own water (lake and well) and electricity (solar) and thus you need to be able to live life aware, simple and ecological.

    In your free time you can enjoy our lake, go for a walk or meditation in the nature we live in, visit other interesting people living close by, bike or (hitch)hike to Aljezur or beaches. You can always join us to visit local markets, gatherings, shops or, at certain times, just share a beer or conversation with us, play a game, bike, run or jump on the trampoline with our kids.

    You can stay and help on projects for a maximum of a month, but after two or tree days we want to talk about the feelings/experiences of all involved ones, so we can decide together how to continue and on which projects.

  • Ayuda


    We need you to be self sufficient/independent, willing to work hard; together or alone, positive in and aware of our family-dynamic and natures rhythm.

    We need to work on the base and infrastructure of the land. That means mowing, sowing seeds, cleaning in between the trees and bushes, cutting trees and collecting wood, making cleaning-fires (if permitted), digging holes for planting trees, etc.

    Together we also work in the garden we already created. Cleaning, making an irrigation-system, taking care of the vegetables and herbs, seeding new plants in the greenhouse, and expanding the garden with those, etc. We like to work and build according the thoughts of permaculture.

    Apart from tasks on the land, we also need a person to do the lunch-cooking for all of us, with food from the garden or local market.

  • Alojamiento


    When its available we can offer you a ruin which we are transforming into an apartment. It has beds to sleep in (maximum of 4), a wood-heater and a simple kitchen.

    You are also welcome with your own (cara)van or tent on our camper-field.
    We are working there on an outside kitchen, shower and toilet to share. For now
    we have a compost-toilet and a big lake to refresh yourself in. A warm shower can sometimes be available at our bus, depending on the weather and sunshine.

    We use our own water and electricity, so you need to be able to live life simple and economical.
