This is a place for people who are genuinely interested in self-sustainable living, ecosystem restoration and inner and group work.

We are a committed group of people from different countries based near the atlantic coast of Vila Nova de Milfontes and transition town Sao Luis.

Currently in need of people with a passion for cooking, helping in the garden, ecoconstruction, art, forest garden, permaculture design and/or animal care

Our project aims to regenerate an area of 130 Ha through various methods including permaculture principles, agroecology, agroforestry, water management and holistic animal management. We also offer opportunities for inner growth through guided meditations, movement classes (Yoga, Qigong, etc.), group circles, team work and, of course, day-to-day meetings.

This magical piece of earth has orchards, pastures, food forests, valleys, organic gardens and natural ponds and lakes. We aim as much as possible to produce our own food, have a dog, cats, chickens, goats, sheep and many other creatures wandering around.

At the moment we are looking for skilled people in tree care, ecoconstruction, cooking, animal care, technical maintenance and outreach, but anyone ready to bring out his best and get his hands stuck into the dirt is more than welcome to join us :)

All we ask for is a love for nature and animals, motivation, dedication and a happy soul. In exchange for around 25hrs of work, 2,5 hrs cooking and 2,5 cleaning a week we offer 3 meals, accommodation, soul growth and an amazing learning environment.

The minimum stay is 2 weeks but we recommend a period of 4 weeks, as we find you actually start to get the most out of the experience after the first two weeks of settling in. Based on mutual agreement, the stay can be extended after the first month. We can accommodate 10-12 volunteers.

The meals we offer are omnivore and vegetarian (with as much organic home grown produce as possible). If you have dietary requirements, you will need to bring your own food to supplement.

At A Quinta we like to bring out the best out of each other, so we are an alcohol and drugs free zone except for specific events.

When applying, please tell us a bit about yourself, your skills, your interests and what motivates you.

Then we will answer you with more info about us.

Thanks for reading and looking forward to hearing from you!
Ferry and Loulou
