Originally from Ireland, i have travelled much of Europe as a HelpX Volunteer, Couchsurfer and hiker.
(Visit the weblinks above)

Now i have settled near Monte Frio in the mountains of Portugal with my own little farm, and i need a lot of help to restore it.

Type of work to be done:
- cleaning land
- rebuilding stone walls
- tidying/repair/rebuild ruin stone-house
- gardening, planting, making new beds
- growing native forest (cleaning and planting)
- helping at home (cooking/cleaning)
- playing with, walking & tiring out my dog
- starting my yoga/meditation routine

I try to do all things with permaculture ideals in mind - but i'm pragmatic about how to do things.

I have a little van for helpers to use as a bedroom on the farm - this will be basic living!
My van has the cooker, we have outside kitchen space and there is shade covered outdoor space.
Running water, dry toilet, hot solar shower etc basically its glorified camping.

We are a couple with a 5 years old daughter, 2 dogs, 4 cats and few chickens living on a beautiful piece of land in South Alentejo (Portugal). We love quietness and contact with nature, waking up everyday in our heaven of piece, surrounded by oak trees.
We wish to create a space to receive people (wooden house, teepee...) and host courses, so that our visitors can observe and connect with nature, learn new things and enjoy life in a mindful manner.

We are looking for responsible and serious volunteers who would like to help us re-generate a beautiful piece of land, by planting trees, pruning, maintaining the organic gardens and building wooden and cob structures so we can provide rural accommodation to mindful tourists, as well as host courses (permaculture, natural soap making, timber framing...).

Right now, we would need volunteers for gardening and wood + cob building.
Qualified volunteers requested :)

I'm a vegetarian chef, originally from the Netherlands. I've been living in the Algarve, in Southern Portugal, since 1986. I built this home and raised two kids here. Now they're grown and have moved on, creating even more space for friends and for hosting HelpXers :)

Basically I need helpers to assist with different tasks around the house and property, ranging from gardening to building or helping with cooking projects. In exchange for 5 hours of work per day, I'll provide a nice room in a separate house next to mine, plus meals and/or use of the kitchen.

I'm careful about water consumption, so there is an outhouse (a very nice one, shown in one of the pictures). There is electricity, wifi.and peaceful surroundings nice hiking.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hello! We are a young gay couple living & working in the mountains of Central Portugal caretaking a 40 year abandoned farm back into production with a self sufficiency & reforestation project.

I work hard and in tune with Nature in the breathtaking mountains of the Serra do Açor; I work freely to make these fertile lands bountiful again, and bring the forests back to production, making a haven for wildlife.


As the summer heat gives was to Verao do Sao.Martino ( Indian Summer ) its a time of great productivity.

Current focus on the farm-

Getting the veg garden prepared, after the summer harvests, to plant things to eat over winter and into spring.

Preparing the winter firewood.

Collecting stones to build and repair walls, continue work on steps between the house and the carpark. Using the ancient technique of extracting the beautiful xisto slate and building ecologically with just mud and stones.

The goats are organic and walk everyday free-range over the mount... more inside

In Oct 2009 I acquired a renovated farmhouse which has nearly 8 acres of land with beautiful views situated near Marvao. The land is varied & consists of terraces, some flat & rocky areas with 320 olive trees, cork & fruit trees, vineyard, bullrush ponds,

We currently have 3 friendly sofa loving & playful dogs, 4 crisp stealing affectionate cats, 5 ungrateful cheeky geese, 5 dappy curious sheep, a mixed bunch of 20 plus entertaining chickens / chicks, talkative ducks & last but not least there are the 3 characterful donkeys. In other words liking animals is very important ...... If you do not 110% GENUINELY enjoy being around them ...... please choose another host!!!

** all the animals are primarily pets. However, even though I rarely eat meat now, very occassionally practicalities have necessitated in the past that a goose or male lamb has gone in the pot / freezer (not very likely to happen from now on - just so you know).

July & August is hot - so unless you are ok wit... more inside
