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 seven year old son, Saul, and four 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 provide a retreat and workshop space.

Helpers are needed for a vast array of tasks! These include landscaping, clearing, cleaning, cooking, 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 provide 3 nourishing, vegetarian meals. We ask for 5 hours work per day, 5 days a week. We welcome nature-loving, community-minded folk, artists, musicians, yogis, meditators, piano tuners ;-) and people who are up for creating a warm and fun experience and who aren't afraid to work.

We appreciate a photo on your profile. Thanks.
