We are Christine (main host), Cândida (Christine's youngest daughter) and Daniel (Cândida's partner). Christine has lived in Portugal for the last 45 years running many small businesses, from which she is now retired. We have half a hectare in a large valley in the foothills of the `barrocal´ (the ridge of higher hills running along the north of the Algarve). Over the years we have built up a veritable organic `food forest´with a large orchard (20-30 diferente species and one amazing tipu-tipu tree!), an olive grove, several carob trees and a medium sized veggie patch. The ocean is 25 minutes away by car (no easy public transport) but national train line 5 minutes away and plenty to see (typical Algarve villages, river walks, etc) within biking distance.
From March 22nd to April 5th we are hosting and teaching a Permaculture Design, Agroforest and Bamboo course.
For workaways volunteering with us during the period of the whole course we may offer scholarships.

We love animals and have had pets in the past. In our experience pets can be a challenge to host. We can receive pets so long as they are OK with being outdoors 100% of the time. Our farm is not totally fenced so please bear this in mind. The best is to talk it over before you come.
