Vision: Sustainable living
– creating a healthy environment for the mind, body and soul
Location: Coastal Alentejo
– here we have the best of both worlds, stunning coast and beautiful countryside
The farm: the farm consists of an old farmhouse that is to be restored, 23 ha of grazing land and fields. It has a lot of water underground, a few creeks and is close to a big lake.
Part of the farm are 14 dogs, of which 10 are rescues, 4 horses, 9 cats and chickens.
It has more than 20 fruit trees, olive trees and a small vegetable patch.
Now: the house needs a lot of work, an outside kitchen has to be built, the garage converted into accommodation and the garden area around the house needs a lot of TLC.
The dog kennels also require fixing and extending.
The land has been neglected for a long time so the fields and creeks need to be cleared, the vegetable patch expanded, the trees maintained and new ones planted, fences build etc.
Future: We are now looking for people who want to join us on the farm, build their own eco accommodation such as hobbit houses, yurts, straw bale houses and live off the land.
- Current members: 2
People who want to join us short term or are looking to become part of the community are welcome to stay with us.
In exchange for your work/help on the farm and a small contribution (rate varies according to the length of your stay) you will be able to live on the land (either in a tent or a dormitory in the house which is to be finished), receive 3 meals a day, use the communal areas (wifi) and have two days off per week to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and activities.
You will get the opportunity to run your own projects and/or build your own eco housing, depending on your skills and there are also possibilities of paid jobs.
