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

We are a dutch couple, farming at the edge of a very small village and close to the forest in the center of Portugal.
We have many plans and ideals and are willing to learn and teach every day.
The farm is growing slowly; too much to do in too little time. We hope to live from our activities as from spring next year.
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 laid in ashes completely.
We had no insurance, 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 in good spirit and many people supported us. When you lose almost everything, you are given a chance to start new and do it better. Steady, slowly and in good spirit we are recovering 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 buil... more inside

We are a German (Franz 34) and Polish (Kasia 27) couple who both enjoyed traveling for the last years individually and together. We speak english, polish, german. We are both much interested in organic farming, permaculture and sustainable living. Franz has a Bachelor degree in Biology and we both have successfully taken part in a Permaculture Design Course program. Kasia also likes to create her herbal remedies, infusions and soaps.
In Oct. 2017 we made our best dream come true and got the land in the heart of Portugal, where we live now with our two cats - Viking and Selma - and a cute dog, Tao. The land had already some basic permaculture principles in its design when we bought it, but there is still a long way to go to turn it into what we imagine. We are setting up a food forest, doing some natural building and planning to restore our ruin in the future. At some point we want to be a permaculture education site, hosting PDCs and different workshops. We wish to create a pl... more inside

An old house and banana organic farm that belonged to my great grandparents which I manage since 2012. I host tourists through Airbnb and sometimes CouchSurfing travellers. You'll help me maintain the garden, banana plantation vegetables and other trees, composting, housekeeping, some construction, upcycling and welcoming guests for my Airbnb space. I love working with permaculture, dry toilets, bio-construction, fungal and bacterial worlds, arts and spiritualism. I have a very good network of friends and people that work on sustainability in the island, Portugal mainland and even world like. I have done independent volunteering in Haiti after the big earthquake with GiveLove NGO, working on compost toilets with Joe Jenkins (Humanure Handbook), Hamish Skermer (Natural Event) and Patricia Arquette (actress and GiveLove cofounder). I have also managed, develop and scaled up the dry toilets and food waste composting departments at Boom Festival in 2008, 2010 and 2012.

We are a family with a modern house and orchard which we are turning into a food forest and nature reserve ... 3 boys (aged 5, 4,and 20 months) ... and friends ...and happy chickens. The two older boys attend the local Waldorf School full time.

We seek a helper to lovingly help Katerina with the children, with organic vegetarian cooking, and to assist Ian with the project. An interest in holistic healing practices would be a bonus.

We are at the edge of a delightful small village, less than 20 minutes to the surfing capital Peniche and many other beaches and the beautiful Obidos lagoon, 10 minutes from the historic citadel of Obidos where we drink cherry liquor in chocolate cups, 15 minutes from the spa town of Caldas da Rainha and 1 hour North of Lisbon, The Portuguese villagers are incredibly friendly and also hold regular celebrations of life.
