We are establishing our vegetable farm and reforestation project in the beautiful mountainous area of arganil
For now we are concentrating on the maintenance of our vegetable gardens, which provide us a lot of food already, and the improving of our house in a sustainable way.

We want to have a pleasant learning-exchange with the people visiting. So we are willing to host you in a peaceful, natural environment with a relaxed and versatile atmosphere, in exchange we want to ask you what you have to offer to us and what your contribution will be to this place.

We're a couple in our thirty's, almost two years ago we brought one of the abandoned "casais de folgosinho", featured in the documentary "Ainda Ha Pastores". Recently Sam's brother Joe has joined us. We feel a strong responsibility to bring this place back to life and to show it the respect it deserves.

Me (Emily) and Sam spent 3 years travelling and volunteering here in Portugal before moving here. During our travels we have learnt a bit about permaculture principles, wild food and organic farming. In our previous lives, Sam was a sheet metal worker, me a digital designer. We want to use all our previous experience to work towards a sustainable future for us and this beautiful place we are blessed to be living.

This is a very special time for us as we are just starting here (our second year), although people have lived here for over 300 years. We would want them to be able to see that we are caring for this place as they did. We welcome anyone to share there time and knowledg... more inside

Hi, we are Tom (48 from Belgium) and Blanche (49 dutch/spanish)We grew up in Belgium and Holland and live in Portugal for 22 and 14 years.Our children are: Michel (22) and Luka (10) We live in a small farm in a beautiful environment in the middle of Portugal close to the Serra da Estrela.We built our own tiny wooden house, cabin, tool shed and stables.We constructed a wooden platform with a tipi on top to house helpers. We are totally off the grid. Electricity comes from a small 2 panel solar system and we have our own well on top of the land so the water for all our use comes down with natural gravity.
We got 2 vegetable gardens and a big glasshouse, several (medicine) herb gardens and planted loads of fruit trees. We are planting a fruit forest garden and recently dug a huge pond for water storage.We made artificial wetlands to clean our greywater and are building a decent compost toilet now (while the one we use now is a very simple design). We also would like to built a hydro g... more inside

This is a smallholding eco quinta located on the banks of the Dão river in the Beira Alta region of central Portugal. A perfect place for people who want to be surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty, experience rural Portugal, and enjoy the comfort of a small and social community. The MdD is managed by a Dutch/American couple and a rotating group of long-time volunteers. We are located directly on the river Dão, partly within an ecological reserve. Over the course of 26 years this former miller's farm has been turned into an off-grid, partially self-sustaining homestead, rural tourism business and artist-in-residency program...and a place loved and visited by many.

In 2017–18 we will be expanding our food producing garden, work on upgrades in our building facilities and ongoing landscape/forestry management. For the spring and fall months we are looking for volunteers who can work in our vegetable garden, assist with general terrain and facilities maintenance, and rando... more inside

Welcome to Rossaio: We are a small collective occupying an abandoned village on a ridge in Central Portugal. Our project - The Hive - has been based here since 2008, slowly restoring the buildings, working the land and creating forest gardens.

We have several ruins and many fertile terraces, and many trees including olive, chestnuts, cork oaks, pines, walnuts and lots of fruit trees. We are constantly adding different varieties to increase diversity.
Our aim is to bring this area back to a vibrant life, in tune with Permaculture design principles.

We are looking for anyone with permaculture, sustainability, construction or any land-based skills to join us, either for shorter stays of up to one or two months, or for longer stays of a year or more. People up for hard work but a lot of fun are very welcome.

In return for 4-5 hours work per day we can provide accommodation and food . Household tasks such as cooking, washing up and collecting firewood are shared, and there will... more inside
