This is a small BnB in the middle of Portugal and 30km from the coast. There is a main-building, 2 little guesthouses and a garden (about 1200m2)
We, Richard, Maryk and Vincent bought the quinta in 2008 and are building and rebuilding the place ever since. We did, and do everything ourselves.

From masonry walls, until designing and making furniture. Preferably from old material. Lots of recycling.
Now we have two activities going on, a BnB and a sound and light company.

So there is always a lot of different kind of work to do.
We decide each day which activity we choose to do. Depending on the weather or just what we like to do.

Such as: the continuing story of (re)building
Helping in the sound business, making cables, painting speaker boxes etc, cleaning and helping with the guests of the B&B.

But most of all we need help for the garden!

With three sound engineers in the house we never learned properly gardening. So we are kind of fighting a losing battle agains... more inside

Hello everyone!
We have an exciting volunteering proposal to offer! We are looking for Lisbon based helpers interested in art, architecture, design, collective urban action and a lot of fun in the city. For 4h a day and 3 days a week work. The collaboration will start the 4th of November and end the 15th.

briefly: We organize architectural research based art projects. The first project in Lisbon was Patio Ambulante in 2013 during the architecture Triennial in Lisbon. We worked in the realm of temporary and immediate architectural action in public spaces. Our new project is, FRAME GAMES, accessible and intergenerational pocket games, that we are now producing and launching on the market as a fund-raisering strategy for many of the activities we promote in public space. We are a team of four collaborating with many others.

We need 2 Lisbon based volunteers for a short period interested in stencil artworks to help out in some urban actions, and to communicate on social media. ... more inside

Laura and Andrew own a small farm in Central Portugal. We are committed Christians. We aim to become self-sufficient on our land, producing wood for fuel, organic vegetables and fruit for food and keeping some livestock (currently pigeons, chickens and goats) for meat, milk, cheese and compost. We have been here four years and there is always lots to do! At present we are completing a grey-water recycling system and also installing a caravan for volunteer use in a pleasant woodland setting. We are planning to build a cob meeting house for prayer, parties etc.

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

Small organic farm with animals. We have a luxury caravan for helpers to stay in(it has an out side bathroom and kitchen area as well as the ones in the caravan. We require person/persons to help run our small farm and duties would be planting, weeding, watering, helping construct animal shelters and feeding of animals. Occasionally looking after the farm over night so we can have a break. Must be dog friendly!!!!!!This is a working farm and as such the proper working cloths and footwear(boots)are essential. In the past helpers who turned up with just flipflops made it clear they were not here to help but to try and have a free holiday.We are not a campsite(FREE) for travelers.Genuine helpers are always welcome. We expect you to pay for yourself on days out although we do provide three good meals a day with drinks when you are on our farm.

We are Adam (Web developer) and Sue (chef). We live in the hills of the Algarve, in an old estate with a lake, all situated in a quiet valley. We have been slowly renovating and improving the land here for the last 2 years. We aspire to being organic and self sufficient eventually but need some help to achieve this! We have dogs, cats, quails and chickens, and hopefully this winter will have some goats too.

We are looking for 1 or 2 fit, energetic, hands-on people to work with us to maintain our lake, create and maintain the garden and trees, rebuild drystone walls, brick & mortar projects, and other general maintenance. In exchange we can offer accommodation and meals. We are omnivores, but happy to cook vegetarian or vegan as required too!

We can offer a skill swap of cooking, programming, and the practical skills that we have learnt along the way so far.

Accommodation is a double or twin bedded room with en suite bathroom, and we have plenty of space for live in vehicl... more inside
