  • Descrição


    Whoever said Permaculture was lazy gardening lied! 😂

    Having created a beautiful Permaculture project in England's Lake District, we relocated to Portugal to bring love, sweat and toil to another piece of land.

    We are situated in our own valley, with over 3 hectares of beautiful terraced land, dropping down to the river at the bottom. The aim is to create a wonderful home for our family, friends and guests.

    There are various zones and ongoing projects, including no-dig veg gardens, the beginnings of a large forest garden, a chicken run, a sports terrace (volleyball, boule and archery), a bbq area, a big firepit for bonfires (in winter months only) and various other terraces with ongoing projects, such as the creation of a volunteer area with its own kitchen, showers, compost loo etc.

    As well as the two of us, our family consists of two wonderful young children, two super friendly dogs, an ageing cuddly cat, and a flock of chickens.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    We generally try to work alongside our volunteers, doing whatever needs to be done that day. We try to create a balance in our daily work. There may be times when we ask volunteers to do tasks alone and we expect volunteers to be self-motivated and responsible.

    It is often hot and sunny, so there may be times that we need to work early and late, with time off in the heat of the day. Tasks are often physical, so if the thought of working up a sweat doesn’t put a smile on your face, you may want to re-consider applying. That said, we strive to find a balance between work and play. You will also find plenty of time to explore this beautiful part of the world on your own or with our two adorable dogs, who love an adventure!

  • Ajuda


    The help can be varied. We often need help in the veg garden (planting, weeding, harvesting). There are lots of young trees in the forest garden that need watering and mulching in the summer months. We are usually building something (compost loo, shelters above caravans, etc). Then there is wood collection and processing, strimming, grass cutting, pruning, de-brambling etc. All the good stuff!

    We have two young children, which makes life rich but doesn't always make getting things done easy. Any help entertaining the kids is usually welcomed.

  • Acomodação


    Two nice caravans (soon to be under shelter with their own porch area in front).
    Two bell tents are available in the summer months.

    There are nice compost loos, and we are in the process of creating a shower area.

    Our quinta is situated in a beautiful valley with great walks in most directions and a lovely river for swimming. For those wanting a bigger adventure, the gorgeous Serra da Estrela Natural Park is only 45 minutes drive away.

    Ervedal da Beira is our nearby village, a couple of kilometers up the road. It has a range of local shops and a few cafes/bars, serving cold beer and pastries and is walkable (albeit uphill).

    Further afield are the towns of Oliveira do Hospital, Tabua and Seia, all about 20-30 minutes drive away. These have most things you might ever need.

    The whole area is inundated with river beaches, ranging from huge lakes with a wide range of facilities to quiet hidden gems.

    For ocean lovers, there are beautiful deserted sandy beaches on the east coast, about 1h40min away. Great for a weekend trip!
