(Just so you know ... we are making a pause on having woofers in ... and will start again around April / May 2019)
We are a family with 2 children and animals and we have love, patience & empathy.
We believe in Karma, we try to respect as much as we can our Mother Earth and we want to build an organic, sustainable farm and create a place of peace and positivism.
We are team players and open minded.
This is happening right now and daily help is really needed !
Our main tasks for this year in this 2.5 hec land are:
- Building contention walls with stones and tyres for 2 areas
- building cover for event area
- restore our yurt
- Develop & enlarge the permacultural and agricultural garden & land
- Taking care of the animals and the children.
If you want to be part of our team, do not hesitate to contact us.
We are waiting for you ;-)
At the moment we can offer classy tents for sleeping in which mattresses + all bedding is provided.
We have a very nice small shared kitchen (with a dishwasher!) that can be used by all ... food is provided of course and everyone can cook.
We have washing machines and clean, nice compost toilets.
We want to build more comfortable sleeping and chilling areas and we want you to help us with that.
We live on the hill of São João dos Montes with an awesome view over the town of Alhandra and the river Tejo. The next small supermarket is 5 minutes by foot. To Alhandra you can walk in 20 minutes, from there goes the local train frequently to Lisbon. With that you are in the main train station of Lisbon in 20, in Bairro Alto in 30 minutes.
We have several cars and we drive down town regularly.
With us you can learn a bit about permaculture, yoga, ecology and sustainability. We are multilingual and cultural: french, portuguese and english.
We love to cook, to dance and to sing.
We like to visit parties and festivals and you are welcome to join.
