  • Descrição


    Here we are in Montemor-o-Novo, Alentejo, Portugal, on a beautiful land next to a beautiful river.

    My name is Isabel and I had a great opportunity to buy this piece of heaven 1,5 year ago - 600 meters of river, 8.5 hectares, 4 water mines, 1 water mill, 2 houses, 1 carpentry and a looooot to plant!

    I've been living here for 7 years and I've always had a strong connection to this land and felt a great responsibility to protect it. Luckily I've had friends joining in on this quest. Our focus is to plant a beautiful forest, regenerate the river and provide a safe space for beautiful people and wild animals to stay or circulate.

    Around the farm we have friends working on agroforest, carpentry, construction, welding, etc. We've been working on constructing basic infrastructures and recovering ruins, but we also love to organize parties, circus shows, workshops and concerts.

    We have dogs, cats and a piggy. We love animals and they are very welcome as long as their owners take responsibility and good care.

    The rest of the family comes and goes, I have an open house for visits and people that want to spend time helping out

    For the ones helping more with the plantings, once or twice a week you will have an orientation day with a portuguese agroforestry master who is managing all the plantings around here.

    Here in Montemor-o-Novo you'll have the opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people that are focused and working on land regeneration, permaculture, agroforestry. We sometimes have open days and workshops on agroforestry, and Ajudadas, which are big open days where we invite all our friends to do plantings.

    We're also part of a bigger family that is Montemor-o-Novo, a super artistic and creative small city where a lot of our friends live. It's a city full of associations and projects that work on sculpture, cinema, animation, puppetry, theater, architecture, community development, local production and land regeneration. We have cultural activities every weekend and we do singing encounters and rehearsals regularly, specially focused on Cante Alentejano, a local traditional singing.

    Montemor-o-Novo is a beautiful place to feel a strong sense of community and friendship, where people gather to help each other but also to just celebrate life. We do beautiful parties!

    Algo mais...

    Our house is 2km away from the city, so it's very easy to have an independent life and move around walking or biking.
    You can participate on many different activities, such as theater, yoga, singing, jam sessions, chess, football, etc.

    Here at the farm there are a lot of people passing by and helping out, it sometimes get's intense. We love to socialise but sometimes we're kind of quiet, so we value people that find their own rhythm and space, that are independent and that communicate with clarity.

    We would love to find someone with a sense of community but also independent on their tasks. We're all in our own path, continuously learning about nature, community, relationships and personal processes.

    We're absolutely closed to racists, fascists, xenophobes, sexists and people who manifest any kind of disrespect or authoritarianism towards others. We are very strict on this one.
