HELP NEEDED WITH THE ALMOND HARVEST!!!
(end of August/beginning September)

I am happy to welcome gentle, friendly and motivated people to assist me with various projects at my home in the peaceful countryside in the Algarve, in the southeast of Portugal (between Olhao and Tavira). I live in an old farmhouse, renovated with environmentally friendly materials and solar panels. I enjoy a fairly simple and calm life on my land amidst orange, fig, olive and almond trees, 6km from the nearest village and 10km from the ocean and beach in a nature reserve. This is the sunniest spot with the purest air in Europe! Languages spoken are English, Dutch, Portuguese, some German and some French.

In addition to my house, I have a guesthouse for holiday rental, offering a refuge for people to de-stress and reconnect with the stillness in themselves, through connecting with the peaceful surroundings and, if they wish, through meditation practice. I also have a comfortable caravan, space for... more inside

*** GRAVITO WAS HIT BY THE RECENT WILDFIRES. WE HAVE HAD TO CANCEL OUR RETREAT SEASON BUT ARE STILL TAKING ON VOLUNTEERS ***

We live in a beautiful small hamlet nestled in the hills of central Portugal. There are four houses which until recently lay abandoned for 60 years. The river Pera runs through the valley (we have a great swimming hole) and a spring delivers our drinking water. We, Miguel and Shobha, live here with our six year old son, Saul, and three year old daughter, Anaya, and are restoring part of the hamlet and reclaiming the land. We are planting trees, setting up an organic permaculture garden and working on providing a retreat and workshop space.

Helpers are needed for a vast array of tasks! These include landscaping, clearing, childcare, gardening, tree-felling, pointing, dry-wall restoration..... and more! Accomodation is either in tipis or a self-contained room. The set up is basic but comfortable. We have a solar set up for electricity & wifi. We will also... more inside

Located in the beautiful Serra de Monchique. Permaculture farm in development. Working by design. We are trying to be self supporting. Fruit trees & vegetable garden. Goats and chicken help us and give us eggs, milk & cheese. Which are a substantial part of our diet. We have a small eco camping during the summer month.

We are just a small team so we are looking for volunteers with experience in cooking, animal care (farm animals) and basic carpentry skills (if you can handle a hammer and are a handy(wo)man its fine). And who have a good physical condition, since we work on a steep slope. A good motivation and a sense of humor is important to us. The work is well organised. The minimum stay is 3 weeks.

We will offer you a nice and reliable place to stay and good food. Living in the farmhouse as part of the family during the day and sleeping in a big tent with clean beds under the starry sky. Good matrassen and sheets are provided. There is a WC and there is a shower with hot an... more inside
