  • Description


    We are a couple, Gil and Lior, pharma-culture veg people living in a beautiful off-grid ecological farm, near the nature reserve of Serra de Estrela, a few minutes walk from a village and 10 minutes drive to the town of Fundao.
    This is our place to make reality our perception of how our lives, of human beings, can be conducted together with the nature around us and not against it.
    This is pure happiness, a special place for trees, insects, mammals, monkeys of the genus Homo sapiens and everything else.
    surrounding by forests, in a small valley with green mountains around.
    after many years in India and S.E.Asia forests, We establish an edible forest on land that already had more than 150 old fruit trees on it: apples, plums, cherries, oaks, loquats, figs, and more. the farm is almost self-sustainable and our dream is to be as much self-sustainable as possible.
    we are experienced and willing to share and teach the ideas and day-life vision of "grow your own" and "do less damage around" because this is the only thing that will help everything:}.

    Looking for a short and long-term vegan couple or 2 friends to stay at our farm.
    we very much prefer people that have some touch to permaculture life and thinking
    At This time we are looking for gardeners.
    we wish the volunteers to do things that will make them happy, and there is doing requested in many fields.

    Please tell us about yourself, your interests, your time of travel, and your experience in volunteering.

    will be happy to hear from you:}
