  • Description


    **** We are currently looking for people who would like to stay at least 3 or 4 weeks. Anyone interested in cooking and house care, planting for the winter, and assisting in a natural building project? ****

    Friends Roger (m) from England and Sheridan (f) from Canada, would like to welcome you to the Algarve in Portugal.

    We currently have 4 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 horses, all rescues.
    Our focus, for the first few years on the farm, was caring for rescue horses, but now that most of them are re-homed, we are working on expanding our organic garden, planting trees, encouraging wildflowers, and making a welcoming home.

    Ours is an ever-changing and growing volunteer family.
    The people who have most enjoyed their time here are self-motivated, and able to go with the flow. They enjoy assigned tasks, but are self-directed. They look forward to evening get-togethers, and sharing philosophies around the dinner table with us and the other volunteers.

    We have maintained friendships with many of our previous volunteers, including repeat visits from them, and also visiting them when we are abroad.
    We look forward to getting to know you, too!

    We try to work to a schedule, but sometimes life gets in the way. If you prefer a strict schedule, and don't like interruptions or change, you might not enjoy staying here.

    ****For the comfort of everyone living or staying here, we DO NOT not accept CIGARETTE SMOKING on the property. Thanks :)

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are not Portuguese, and are only beginners at the language; but we are always interested in learning more about Portugal, its language and its culture, and exploring Portugal with you.

    If you have somewhere you would like to visit, we are open to day trips.

    We are working on making the farm totally self-sustaining, planting trees for a food forest, and have plans for yurts and cob housing.
    Our garden is a work in progress. Vegetables go to seed quickly in hot weather, and we are learning about gardening in Portugal!
    The vegetable garden, fruit trees, and grape vines need ongoing maintenance.
    We started a pond at the end of last year, and are looking forward to finishing that project.
    We hope to build a small straw bale house this year.
    There are a few crumbling out buildings to be rebuilt
    We have plenty of bamboo waiting for your creative ideas.

    Every day, someone picks from the garden for the kitchen table (plenty of opportunity to learn about plants and cooking).

    The house requires daily upkeep.

    If you can help with:
    - Building projects
    - Cooking and food preparation (e.g.: Pickling, Jams)
    - House upkeep
    - Planting, weeding and general garden care
    - Picking fruit
    - Light maintenance work
    - Building wooden structures
    - Brick and cement work
    - Painting & decorating
    .......we welcome you!

    ****No experience necessary, just bring your enthusiasm!****
