  • Description


    Hey everyone! I'm Sorrel and I have a little girl, Willow.
    We moved to Portugal 18 months ago and since then we have built an earthbag house, made a beautiful garden, done a lot of construction projects and created a social hub which involves renting out a campervan, a small campsite and biweekly cinema nights. We love it here and there is an amazing community in the valley we live in, with other workaways, social events here and in other local venues and a lot of nature.

    At the moment, my daughter and I live in a renovated stone house which belongs to my brother. He sometimes visits us but he lives on another piece of land most of the time. My daughters father lives on the adjacent piece of land in the earthbag house. We have chickens and a cat and there are a few dogs that live in the Valley.

    We can share lots of knowledge with you about growing and making and we hope to include you in the process as I make this place more comfortable for Willow and I.

    I am looking for individuals / a couple/ a family who likes children, enjoys nature, wants to learn about and be involved with growing food, wants to build stuff, relax and hang out with people in the evenings, cook, want to learn about eco-building and enjoys making places beautiful with creative arts. You will have your own tent and space with drinking water, so you can be private if you want to be.

    I can provide a two meals a day in exchange for help on the land, we wont work hard! only a few hours a day. The weekends are all for events and parties. There is lots going on here!

    I ask that all shared meals are vegan or vegetarian.
    We also ask that you bring your own plant based soaps and other bathroom products or use ours. All our water is reused and we do not want it contaminated with any chemical products so we ask you don't bring them.
    Apart from this, we are very laid back and want you to enjoy your stay with us!

    We look forward to meeting you!

    At the moment I would like to build up the vegetable garden and build a chill out area and shower block on the land. I would also love to learn Portuguese and get help looking after my daughter by providing her with people to play with and new people to learn from.

    Sometimes we run cinema nights on the land opposite and different members of the area we live in have some social events. I'm not certain what jobs there might be to do, but I would just love to have companions to chat to sometimes in the evenings, share meals together, share living and parenting responsibilities like cooking and cleaning as well as maintaining the land and keeping it a healthy and thriving ecosystem.
