We are a dutch couple, living at the edge of a very small village in the center of Portugal.
We have many plans and ideals and are willing to learn and teach every day.

The big forest fire of Pedrógão Grande (17th of June 2017) destroyed our house with all in it, stables, machinery and equipment, and left the land in aches completely.
We had hardly any compensation from the state, not enough money to rebuild the house and stables, nor money to substitute our equipment, but we moved on. When you lose almost everything, you are given a chance to start new and do it better. Steady, slowly and in good faith we'll recover from the blow. By the way, we cannot thank the good helpers from helpX enough for their input.

Over winter and spring (2018) a new house was built and we partly recovered the ruine.
Part of the old kitchen with the ancient wood oven is recovered and in full use for making pizzas and other dishes.

Although there still are many burned trees that needs to ... more inside

Help with natural building work on off-grid eco-project in the mountains of central Portugal!


*UPDATE*

*At the moment we are mostly concentrating on construction work, using some natural building techniques, like cobbing (using clay, sand, straw and water), lime plastering, rammed earth, sourcing materials from the land, from nearby or recycling used materials. We are using cement when necessary. This can be physically demanding work, but rewarding for people who are interested in developing skills and experience in this area. Current volunteer accommodation is in tents, which can be provided*

Early days on an ecological project to create a working model of accessible sustainability in the mountains of central Portugal. The evolving concept is to experiment with, develop and share techniques of natural building, regenerative agriculture and healthy living. This may include aspects of sustainable/alternative energy production, food production, passive solar energy, food f... more inside

Hello everyone. So, explanation time: On the 26th of February, I embarked on an adventure which change the course of my life forever, I had a one way ticket and flew to Portugal. Now I am still here, working on a family farm/animal rescue. This has set a precedent in to my life which let me see what I can do to change the world and let me do it too.

On this adventure I am doing everything I wished to do from; caring for animals (horses especially) to building raised planters. Here I can still practice all my hobbies ranging from pottery to archery (I am far from skilled but it's an interest) to musical instruments.

With being as busy as I am, I have now created this page to show everyone how easy it is to change your life. Before I came I was depressed and stressed, now feel as though I am full of life and ecstatic!

I will be posting any and all updates that I can, I only wish to encourage people to change themselves for the better (I am not saying what I am doing is b... more inside

The Freevolution is the gift economy movement; inspiring to be the change that we need. Free workshops for permaculture, sustainability, surfing, yoga, meditation and more are the things we publicy offer in this location.

The purpose of this main branch here though is to lead the growth of the gift economy through publicity in any form. We are also living by example with zero-waste, permaculture, minimalism, self-actualisation and obviously the gift economy offerings mentioned before.


WHAT IS THE GIFT ECONOMY?
++++++++++++++++++++++++++
A true gift economy is when we not exchange goods and services, but instead give them away without expectation of return. You can find it in healthy families, friendships, volunteers, tribes and communities and we now bring it to a global scale. In the transition that’s financed on each members own behalf, but once the gift economy grows and enough people join the chain, you’ll be able to get things for free as well, minimising your expense... more inside
