  • Descrição


    We are a young family- Lior (33), Mai (26) and Alma (2), living in the beautiful village of São Miguel de Acha, Castelo Branco, Central Portugal.

    Our dream is to live a simpler life, in touch with nature ,completely self-sufficient in an ecological way. We are in the process of developing our 37 Hectares land from degraded annual crop fields into a permaculture farm.

    Our goal is to reforest as a food-forest thus helping the planet while creating our own garden of eden.

    There are many ways you can fit in. From the simplest everyday tasks to taking your own project. There are trees to plant, houses to renovate, wood chips to make, veggie-patch to nourish and many more.

    Any ideas or skills you have are welcome.

    Come to learn and teach about permaculture.

    Currently we have multiple accommodations options. We have rooms in our cozy house at the near village, and a camping caravan in the peaceful, secluded land.

    Don’t hesitate to contact us for any further questions.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    We are originally from Israel, both served in the army.
    We speak English, Hebrew and Portuguese and love to cook special Israeli dishes.

    If you’re new to permaculture come and find out about this beautiful method that can be applied in any area of our lives. And if you are already a permaculturist, we are eager to swap ideas and work together on the design.

    Part of being self sufficient is to do it yourself so we’ll be happy to share with you from our experience: building, welding, irrigation, plumbing, electricity and many other skills we acquired over the years.
