  • Descrição


    We are a young family of three, Zak (27), Jackie (26) and Baby N. In 2019 we bought 2ha of abandoned land in Portugal and moved there full-time this spring. We’re working very hard to build a sustainable future for our child through regeneration of the land. We are caretakers of a cork oak forest amidst the eucalyptus plantations and need some help clearing the land and bringing it back into production. A few years ago we visited and worked on a few workaway projects ourselves, which helped us immensely on deciding to embark on this grand adventure, so now we’d like to give back.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    We can teach you what we know about gardening in a changing climate, seed saving, foraging and herbalism and building a farmstead. Often times we still learn something new and we always appreciate the ideas others bring in. At all times we’re happy to share good Portuguese vino and music!

    We have an endless to-do list and turns out a baby slows you down quite a bit, so any help is appreciated :) we have a little permaculture-inspired garden in need of TLC, we’re building a tiny house, we are renovating an old stone barn, need to build our chickens a proper coop, a spring that needs some clearing out… you can see, there’s always something to do! You don’t need any skills, we can teach you what we know and you can experience the very beginning of an off-grid project with us. Because we have a baby, we’d appreciate it if you don’t smoke at all but if you do, you’ll have to leave the property to do so and take care of the resulting trash in a safe way.

  • Acomodação


    Until we finish our tiny house, it would be good if you have your own van to live in and get around. We have a composting loo and outdoor shower but there are also caravan toilet cleaning places in the nearby town if you prefer to use your own van and it’s comforts :) if you don’t come with your own accommodation, we also have our trusted MSR Hubba Hubba that we can put up in our massive garden with mountain vistas so you can wake up every morning to the view. Soon our tiny house is finished and then we can provide an actual room with four walls and a roof over your head but that will take a few more weeks… We’re experienced campers and hikers so have all the gear needed for a comfy stay in a tent! That includes sleeping pads, two different sleeping bags (arctic or summer), a pillow and extra blankets if it gets cold. We cook communal meals, at least one warm meal a day in our outdoor kitchen. We’re vegetarian but can cater to vegans. Ideally you’d have your own transport as the next biggest town is 20min by car, but we can also pick you up.

    Algo mais...

    We have a lot of river beaches and hiking trails in the area that we’ll happily point you to. There are some beautiful paths along the Zezere river not far away and we’re close to multiple little waterfalls and swimming holes. In the summers we’ll take you with us on excursions to the water to seek some respite from the heat!

    We have chickens, rabbits and a very old (but friendly) dog. Your pet needs to be child friendly and get along well with other animals.
