  • Descrição

    Descrição

    The idea is to create a low key, off-grid, experimental self reliant farm with seasonal tourism.
    We are Rick, Sanne, Xavi and Rora (32, 33, 6 and 2). We also have 2 dogs, a cat and 15 chickens. We are starting a self reliant project/life and we have been blessed with a gorgeous piece of land to do it on. We want a fun atmosphere and more like-minded people to come and enjoy the ride. We have lived and worked in many places and been inspired by lots of different people and lifestyles. We want to make everything functional with minimal impact and try to inspire people how to live comfortably, minimally. Let us know your skills and interests and sometimes we can try and cater the work to that.

    What else: We are down to earth people. We love to eat local veggies and meat. Aiming to have most of our vegetables, dairy and meat from our own produce. We don't mind to cater for vegetarians, veganism is a hassle.

    After work we like to spend time at the beach, surfing or having some drinks with friends.

    Also looking for long term volunteers!

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    At the farm, volunteers can learn about natural and modern building techniques. Off-grid living; providing your own energy and water. Growing vegetables during drought seasons. Keeping the living areas safe of forest fires.
    After work and in the weekends you can go for beautiful walks through nature and along the traditional neighbouring farms. You can visit Odeceixe historical centre (8km) or one of the many beautiful beaches.

    At the moment we are in the middle of a big house building projects, (infact, two!). It's a rammed earth construction with limecrete/clay tile floors, lime plastering , the traditional portuguese cathedral roof and is in need of some serious landscaping now the structure is watertight! So any skills and/or keen interest relevant to this is necessary. We need volunteers that are capable of heavy lifting, digging, getting dirty and using a tape measure and a level with a keen eye for finesse and a job done well and fully. It can be hard work and if you're doing it well you'll be tired.

    A bit of heavy duty strimming is often on the cards! Clearing some land and burning for fire safety, strimming... sawing, heaving fallen trees. etc to provide us with firewood and to give space for good groundcover to return along the riverside. & some daily routine house tasks.

    There will be a little of continual gardening (less so over winter) & keeping the animals. We currently only have chickens.
    We have a small no dig organic garden and many compost piles!

    We are interested in creating more swales and using goats for soil building, fire prevention and meat production on our steeper slopes, i.e fencing and digging!

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    At the moment we offer accommodation in our Mercedes box van cabin, a gypsy wagon or a canvas safari tent. Camping is also a possibility, but might be a bit cold between november & april. People with their own vans are ideal too.

    We provide 3 meals a day. We have small children and a small house so we like to have it to ourselves in the evenings.

    There is a compost toilet, heated shower and outdoor kitchen near the vans.

  • Algo mais...

    Algo mais...

    We are living very basically at the minute and we have for years. These first years we are looking for people that are eager to see the realities of setting up a self reliant patch of land completely off grid & whom are happiest when living basic with minimal footprint like we are.

    In exchange for your much appreciated hard work we will return..

    3 Meals a day

    Hot shower

    Town or Beach transport now and again.

    Beautiful location, we are 10mins from the beach, just over 5mins from town (By car). The valley is a lovely place for hiking, biking, swimming, fishing and mushroom hunting (after the rains) but it is a bit secluded without transport (6km walk to town). Odeceixe town can be very quiet in winter and very busy in summer, in winter we mostly spend our time visiting neighbours along the valley and getting stuff done.
