Hi there! We are a small family (Portuguese father, South Tyrolean mum, 5-year-old son), running a 16-hectare, certified organic farm in the Northern Alentejo, close to the beautiful historic town of Castelo de Vide.

We grow fruit and vegetables on our organically certified farm, we started a dried fruit business recently (still very small) and made our own olive oil for the first time in 2019 (150 l of olive oil; not bad for a start!)! We also have two small holiday houses that we rent out. This year, we are also starting a sheep wool project - felting and weaving raw sheep fleece. We are still in the preparatory phase of this, but anyone with skills in this area is highly welcome!!

On the farm we need help in all areas of farm life. This can be fruit picking, fruit drying, canning, gardening, light construction/DIY work, etc. We ask our volunteers to spend some time each day playing with our son, as he loves meeting new people. Our son speaks German, Portuguese, and a little... 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

We are a Swedish/Israeli family of three living on our small farm next to Odeceixe, a cute village in the Southwest of Portugal. Our place is located by the river of Odeceixe, 3 km outside of the village and 6 km from the Atlantic ocean.
We bought the land in the spring of 2014 and we have been very busy sense!

We have hosted over 80 volunteers the past years and we have had an amazing experience renovating our houses and building up the farm! We could never have done it without the help from so many wonderful and caring people, we are truly blessed!

Our vision is to live a quiet life in the countryside, in harmony with nature, and growing as much of our own food as we can.
We are practicing permaculture and we have renovated two houses built out of rammed earth, now we are doing two more :)
To support our selves we are renting out the houses during the summer months.
We have a garden and fruit trees to care for and some chickens.

We need a bunch of strong hands and cur... more inside

Dear HelpX-ers,

First of all, we hope all of you reading this listing are safe and well during this pandemic and its aftermath.

Now that our farm’s most pressing overgrowth has been tackled, we would be interested in longer-term help to maintain the land clean.

Our beautiful family farm comprises nearly 1 hectare of arable land within the boundaries of the Peneda-Gerês National Park, in Northern Portugal, a place of truly stunning natural beauty. Great location by the EN-308-1. The property is a few minutes from the Caniçada dam and 2.5 Km from the historical spa village of Gerês.

This property is in an area of the valley with optimal year-round solar exposure (South facing, microclimate), making it agriculturally highly desirable and providing really pleasant living conditions. However, as in most of Northern Portugal, it does rain a lot in Autumn and Winter!

If you are an energetic, nature-loving individual who would enjoy spending some time in a peaceful rural a... more inside
