  • Description

    We are a nature loving family of three with a passion for living on the land. Our journey which started before we had our son bodhi has taken us around india and britain to organic farms, communitys, permaculture and off grid projects. In 2016 we volunteered and housesat around portugal, spain and france. In early 2017 we volunteered again at land based projects in wales and devon before starting a seasonal job in april at an off grid woodland glamping site in sussex, we have now worked here for two years, the season finnishes in november so we spend the winter volunteering in a kinder climate before the new camping season starts again. Last year we stayed at an artist in residency/ permaculture project in morroco for 2 and a half months and then went to majorca for the rest of the winter volunteering with families and working on ancient olive estates. This year we are back in portugal.
