  • Description


    We are a retired couple living in a peaceful location in central Portugal. We grow olives vines and organic vegetables .
    We live on a beautiful quinta in the forest which was gutted by the fires that destroyed so much land in this wonderful countryside.
    Our farmhouse and vegetable /herb gardens have survived but my land , many trees and my little roundhouse studio was burnt to the ground and I would like to try to rebuild it with the help of a team of experienced volunteers.
    All eco building, roofing, electrical, plumbing ,carpentry and organisational skills are needed .
    I also need help cleaning brushwood and debris left by the fires in order to comply with the new laws about forest management in Portugal
    In return I can offer a small cottage , place to camp, a beautiful salt water swimming pool , good food, ( I am vegan but cooking vegetarian and meat and fish is no problem)
    I need help now .

    Difficult question..... Perhaps I will learn more from volunteers that they will learn from me but I hope people will enjoy hospitality and the tranquility of a wonderful region of Portugal and natural environment in a beautiful climate.
