We are a young(ish!) English couple with three lovely daughters (2,8,11) that moved to this wonderful part of Portugal to live a more simple and connected life. Our land has a house, old mill cottage, ruins and lots of woodland. A small river runs round the side of it and leads up to a series of waterfalls about 1km away. It really is magical. We run two not-for-profit organisations from our office in the nearby village and are also lead a homeschooling group with a group of local and international people, dedicated to happiness. We need your help with both the land and also volunteering with the children at the school as there are 9 children now attending aged 7 to 13, and there is a partner project with more school children where we also need support just down the road. We use mix of Montessori and Waldorf approach .

For those who prefer farming we have a large vegetable garden and many fruit trees that need tending as well as chickens, horses, a dog and soon a rabbit. We need help with weeding, mulching, teaching kids permaculture, we want to learn from you too. We have interest in foraging, herbal medicine and adore cooking nice vegetarian food!

Accommodation is either in a room in an adjoining cottage to our house or a large apartment 10 minutes walk from our house in the nearby village, where we also have an office with excellent internet. The internet at the house is sporadic but can be fast when the wind blows the right way!

We are community minded and have great relations with our neighbours and alternative families across the region so you will meet all sorts of interesting people.
