    “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ~ Rumi

    This is where a new story begins. The passion for pure nature, the practice of yoga and mindfulness. A fertile space for roots to grow, wings to fly. Love is all you need.

    We are Francisca and João and we live at the countryside very close to Lisbon. In a farm that is has been held by family and allows us to have a space to live and love. With a piece of land that we want to transform into an eco camping. A garden to practice permaculture and enough space to accommodate 2 and up to 5 people, allowing people to help us with our project. To make an example for ecological living in peace.

    We met each other in the breakfast queue at the end of boom festival in 2014. The ecological vision of the festival is amazing. An example for recycling, re-using, reducing and taking care of nature. Ofcourse the creative elements and garden shapes, based on permaculture are inspiring to us. We have a happy dog 'Mooji' who loves to have cuddles. He is used to guests. Our cats and chicken will walk around as well.

    Our developing process goes slowly and we are on the beginning of creating something beautiful, enjoying every step. We usually need help from 2 people who apply together and are okay to share a T0 home with beds located close together. Average stay is 1 week up to 15 days. It depends on what a project will require.

    One of the benefits is that we have a safe environment to stay. This is a place, on top of the hill, where we can hear free birds sing. It is more natural and calm than other places. That is the advantage of staying at the country side. Close enough to reach beaches. 30 kilometers of soft sand, ocean waves, surfspots, villages and Lisbon.

    Next to the accomodation, we offer the meals in the form of groceries, to prepare your own vegetarian food in the guesthouse on working days. We also offer access to yoga classes that are available and WiFi internet. Sheets, towels, blankets are included. Our working schedule doesn't allow us to eat all meals and share working hours at the same time. If you need less hours of work we balance the exchange. Before people arrive we clarify what is needed. Francisca did a Permaculture Design Course and can share techniques to work with nature.

    We are teaching Mindfulness and Yoga in online and at home. It might be interesting. Practicing how to live based on ecological life style with awareness. To communicate and plan activities, sharing each others needs and to work with garden design based on sustainability. We mostly speak English together. But you might learn some Portuguese.

    A project based on working in de garden; maintaining and shaping the land, ground and trees/ plants. Building little DIY projects with old pallets for outdoor furniture, re-using, breading the fence with branches and painting work where needed. Inspired on the knowledge of a book; the gardening awakening by Mary Reynolds.

    Carrying materials around the garden and land, landscaping, being able to work with the ground for plants and trees. Align with our bio/ ecological vision using biodegradable shower products, being responsable for your own recyclables. Knowledge sharing about natural products, gardening and upcycling is welcome.

    Francisca is Dutch and João Portuguese. We both are able to speak English. Next to our primary goal to work on the land, we also have an interest in recieving help with building indoor furniture, like closets or creating more outdoor camping facilities. For example a natural outdoor kitchen and a hot compost shower for the camping ground.

    Often you need to plan your own - or group working schedule, based on project priorities. Being proactive, devoted & independent. Therefor we usually need minimal 2 volunteers at the same time who are comfortable to share a small guesthouse and work together.

    Since March 2022 we have a baby. She needs our attention and care, therefor we may need some help around the house too or even with her if possible. This could be a new exchange next to help with gardening. Experience, sensibility and confidence will be needed.

    A creative, peaceful, humble, honest, open mind will make it work.

    Enjoy a cosy home base. Basic open interior with a 4p. kitchen table, 2 single beds, 1 shower with 1 toilet and an open kitchen (all materials to cook included). This house is our moms “holiday home” so we expect our volunteers to take extra good care of it.

    We have a main gate and we are neighbors. The farm it self has a big shed, old chicken houses, another small building. Cars are allowed to park outside the gate. From the land we can see the city lights shine over the river. The terrace in front of the house offers a place to sit outside. We offer laundry for sheets and towels if needed after a week or so. There is hand wash soap in case you wish to wash clothes and you can dry laundry outside on the line. Products for cleaning and showering are mostly biodegradable. We are careful using water.

    If needed we will make use of our caravan which is connected to more ecological and simple, sustainable sources. We always balance the exchange. If needed we can offer a tent, sharing shower, toilet and cooking facilities from the houses and with volunteers.

    It is possible to reach Lisbon from here. Crossing the bridge by car or travel with public transport. A ferry boat in Trafaria will bring you to Belém. From there you can travel by train. Or walk 10 minutes, take the metro and train from Pragal. Local restaurants, in 4 km distance, will serve fresh sea food and traditional dishes for friendly prices. There is a bus stop around the corner that will reach the coast places. The beach is 4,7 km distance. About 10 minutes by car or 1 hour walking. To cycle you need strong legs to go back, there is a bike rental at Trafaria's ferry boat. It is wise to bring a budget for public transports and extra food.

    A small Campervan can go up onto the land field. The gate is only 2.5 meters wide and vans can not be more then 4 meters long. We have a compost toilet now and we can create an outdoor shower in warmer months. Or if it is possible we make a shower schedule with the ones who stay in the T0 home, Casa da Mãe.

    We have a male dog who is free to be outside. We can close the fence of the land to give camping volunteers a space for their dog to walk free. We have to be aware of the combinations we would make first and we are careful with that. Usually our dog goes well along with female dogs. Next to this we have cats and chickens who do not like being chased. Their safety and well-being is our first priority.
