We are a young family, Tania (portuguese) Matteo (italian) and Kalei, our 1 year old son, and we live in Tania’s family farm, close to Ourique (Alentejo).
We have a plant based diet and eat greatly from our little permaculture garden. We are passionate about having a regenerative healthy lifestyle.
The land we leave in is very big, with plenty of space for walks and enjoy the quiet nature of Alentejo.
In the farm there are semi-wild horses and other animals with whom you can respectfully interact.
At the moment our focus is on small projects like gardening, making a compost toilet, water storage, wood collection, and planting trees, etc.
Since we had our son, accomplishing this small projects is sometimes hard so we really appreciate when someone looks after him so that we can work together or have time for ourselves.
Please read the following points since are important for us:
👉 Exchange: we propose you to help a minimum of 15hs per week (mainly child care) in exchange of housing, staying in a dedicated house with your own a private room.
👉 Food: we kindly ask you to not bring animal products in the land and if you are not familiar with a plant based diet, to be open to give it a try. We usually show in bulk in a wonderful cooperative shop close to here and we are happy to go there together so you can also purchase your food.
👉 WIFI: we don't have wifi in the house but there is 4g coverage, so if you need internet access you'd need to use your own mobile data.
👉 Nature care: everything we use, flush, wash, ultimately goes to the land, so we kindly ask you to bring/use only natural/biodegradable products and to do your best to separate the trash
👉Contact: If you are interested, please write in your message your Whatsapp or Telegram number so we can call you and get to know each other better
We hope to see you soon and to have great moments of creating and relaxing together.

If you join us you will have the chance to experience living life in a farm on a Area of Portugal which is becoming increasingly conscious. We have different communities close to us, including Tamera and Monte Sahaja, from Mooji.
Living in a farm has the great advantage of having a constante relaxing, silence environment surrounding us and all the responsibility that takes to build a regenerative live.
So, you might learn about reforestation, permaculture or different methodologies to face life and relate to people.
Matteo has been traveling through a lot of places and experienced many great things so talking to him can give you a lot.
Tania is more focused on living a peaceful simple life, so you might be contaminated by her calm way of living.
