  • Description


    This is a new space - a work in progress. I am are developing this quinta into a space for permaculture and symbiotic living with nature. This is an experiment, I am still learning. I'm trying to be the change I want to see in this world, which is in need of a radical transformation. Asides closeness with nature we believe in a world devoid of violence, of hierachies, of oppression and of authority.

    On this Quinta there are young fruit trees, olive trees, a caravan, a house, two cats and lots of on-going projects - in the most tranquil, beautiful setting you can imagine... Pure peace. It's a place to develop ideas, experiment, improvise and to take your time. A place to be in close touch with nature, to give back, to practice patience, build, grow and heal.

    The work on the land is very versatile, demanding and gratifying. Our days include caring for plants, harvesting, upcyling materials, constructing new structures and brainstorming about possible future projects.

    I need as much help as possible in taking care of the land and for that, I am looking for people who are also passionate about nature, physical work and not afraid to get their hands dirty! Hope to see you soon!

    Experience the raw beauty of the Serra De Estrela mountains, the simple and peaceful life in the green. You'll learn about nature! Apart from that, our different backgrounds might add to your knowledge: Roman has studied Fine Arts and worked for many years as a professional photographer; Luisa is a doctor in the making and has also spent a long time studying music. And we can obviously help with starting to pick on new languages like Portuguese, German and Spanish!

    You'll have your own Caravan, with a gas cooker, bed and table. It sleeps 2 people comfortably.
    There you can make your meals independently.
    Some organic food is provided to you- fresh herbs, eggs, olive oil and vegetables.
    There are gas cooking facilities in the trailer. We can do shopping runs together if needed. There are plenty of local producers to source everything from bread, cheese and vegetables from.

    Autres infos...

    During your time here I really recommend exploring the natural park of the Serra. You can hike and jog in the mountains around the farm, observe the vegetation and wild animals, swim in the nearby lake (10 min walk). With a car, the possibilities are even greater: I recommend visiting the beautiful and peaceful river beaches, nearby villages, try some local food at the regional restaurants, visit the weekly local and eco markets. There are usually a lot of Workaway volunteers in the area too if you feel like meeting people!
