  • Descrição


    Oi! My name is Nicolas and I had a dream to create a beautiful place in nature, where family, friends and like-minded people could work together to create beautiful things.

    This year this dream became reality and this place was born. It' is an old olive grove with a house in a nature reserve close to Odemira. The land and the olive trees need love and the house needs some restoration. Long term plan is to create a permaculture and be able to fully live off-grid. If you want to contribute to nature and help create a paradise, then you are more than welcome to join the team!

    Warm regards,

    Apart from the standard things like a towel, toothbrush, and soap, you would need to bring:
    - headlamp
    - working clothes and shoes, these could also be strong hiking clothes.
    - sun protection: in the form of sunscreen, a hat or cap and sunglasses

    - List activities volunteers can do nearby? Are there places of interest to visit?

    - What extra services are provided? WiFi, bicycles, etc.?
    There are 2 bikes and we will try to organise activities regularly.
    There is no WiFi but internet via cellular network.

    - Rules or specifics of the farm, for example, no smoking, dry toilets, or if the farm is very remote?

    Because of the hot/dry climate fire (smoking) is not allowed in the summer, due to forest fires. We have a dry toilet. The farm is remote it takes 15 min by car off-road or 30 min by bike to get to the nearest bus station, but that makes the place magical :D.

    R.E.S.P.E.C.T. that's what it is all about.

    Much love!
