We are in our incubation phase! Planting organic gardens and building with rammed earth some fairly large farm structures spread over dozens of hectares in the southwest of Portugal. It's a stunning location, good road access, and about 15-20 minutes drive to the ocean. Lots of forest and water on site.
We are songwriters/ artists and teachers...
One of the team is a permaculture teacher registered with the Permaculture Association UK - we will be running courses regularly from 2022.
Please note - we are currently setting up as of April 2021. This means that everything needs to be built, from compost toilets to buildings to kitchens. It is raw and stunning. We do not currently have electricity hooked up - be clear about what you are arriving to.
The long term goal is to have highly productive annual gardens and food forests, artist residencies, music spaces, and courses in ecological education. There will be an existing building crew intermittently on site specialising in taipa (rammed earth) construction.

The area is stunning - you'll benefit from seeing traditional natural rebuilds in process, learn about permaculture design, and have the chance to help alongside a permaculture teacher in a seedling implementation phase.
If you want to come help a seedling permaculture project this is it. We need to design and build all of it! Want to build? work with clay? Have carpentry skills? Want to build all sorts of gardens? Whatever it is - send us your skill set and we'll see if there's a fit.
Camping accommodation only at present. We can provide tents and bedding. We also welcome those who wish to bring their own caravan. But please check in with us - every month things will change.
There will be a community kitchen where volunteers can cook for themselves. Primarily plant-based food served, occasionally animal products. What is not grown on site will be picked up from our local organic suppliers.
We're about 15-20min from Zambujeira do Mar, a stunning bit of coastline (good for surf too). 1/2 an hour inland is the Santa Clara dam, also a beautiful spot. There's unlimited hiking - We're on the Rota Vicentina trail. A lot of opportunities to play music if you bring an instrument. Lots of homesteading in the area, vibrant local community. Easy to get to nearby towns if needed, or beach for a sunset.

You may park your campervan, no worries. But there is no electricity hookup.
If you have amazingly nice animals, fine. But please do check in with us first. We have a cat. In future we will have a lot more animals,
