    Some of reviews in this profile date back to the time we, Jasper & Steph (now living in Malama), had our project in Spain, a little bit about us:

    We (Jasper & Steph) decided to look for something positive in 2012 because we were a sick of all the negativity around us. So we made a trip through the South of Europe. Visiting all kinds of places where people live in an alternative, off-grid and permaculture way. During this trip we've made short films about inspiring people who showed us their little paradises. At the end of the trip we stumbled upon a beautiful piece of land in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada.
    But that place is history and we are now creating a new spot again in Portugal.

    We love natural building! We are specialised in bread/pizza clay oven.

    This is your chance to take a look in a beautiful hidden gem of a community in Alentejo.

    The Malama community in Portugal is a unique retreat that offers a chance to reconnect with nature and one’s true inner self. It’s a place designed for individuals to take a break from society, slow down, reflect, and renew. The community is situated on a 7.7-hectare plot of land in the Alentejo region.

    Malama is more than just a retreat; it’s a living, breathing community where people come together to share experiences, skills, and freedom. The community values the idea of living in harmony with nature, growing their own vegetables, and creating an eco-friendly living space. They have built their home with earth, clay, and sand, mainly using materials from their land, and have installed their own water and electricity systems.

    The community is also a place for families and children, offering activities like dancing, sports, theatre, and games. We organize brunches on Sundays, singing circles, yoga, sound baths, and construction projects. There’s a weekly gardening day and walks with horses, emphasizing the importance of animal and nature in their lifestyle.

    Malama is a testament to the power of dreams and the courage to live them. It stands as an example of self-empowerment and the fulfillment that comes from creating a life in tune with one’s values and the environment.

    For those interested in experiencing this unique way of life, Malama offers family camps where you can slow down, relax, and enjoy quality time with your loved ones while connecting with nature and the wider community.

    If you’re drawn to the idea of sustainable living and community life, Malama could be a wonderful place to visit and learn from. It’s a place where every day is new, filled with learning, growth, and the joy of living closely with nature.

    Homeschooling is the educational path we’ve chosen for our children.

    As parents, we’re actively involved in their learning journey, consistently engaging in a variety of enriching activities.

    However, we believe that the introduction of fresh perspectives and innovative ideas from new faces can invigorate our community and enhance our children’s educational experience.

    As a volunteer, you’ll quickly become an integral part of our close-knit community.

    We’re committed to collaborating with our volunteers, offering help and support, and jointly creating meaningful activities that benefit our children’s growth and development.

    For example:

    Art Classes:
    Unleash your creativity by leading art sessions. Teach painting, drawing, and other crafts to inspire the kids’ imaginations.

    Building and Construction:
    Get hands-on with building projects! Help construct eco-friendly structures, treehouses, or garden beds using sustainable materials.

    Organize workshops on topics like permaculture, renewable energy, or natural building techniques. Share your knowledge with the community.

    Creative Classes:
    Think outside the box! Conduct classes in music, dance, theater, or storytelling. Encourage self-expression and exploration.

    Take the kids on educational outings. Visit nearby farms, explore local ecosystems, or learn about wildlife conservation.

    Beach Trips: Enjoy the beautiful Portuguese coastline! Plan beach days where the kids can play, swim, and learn about marine life.

    Remember, your contributions will not only benefit the children but also contribute to the sustainable lifestyle of the Malama community. 🌿🌟

    Feel free to customize these activities based on your interests and expertise. We look forward to having you join us! 🌻
