Welcome to our farm. This is a little place in the western coast of Sao Miguel island, Azores archipelago, where we live and try to be more and more self sufficient. The village, called Joao Bom, is very small and people here are mainly milk farmers. We are 220m above sea level but in one hour walking we can be in Mosteiros which is a sea level village, with a little beach and some natural swimming pools. With a longer walk of two hours, we can be in Sete Cidades which is a wonderful crater of a sleeping volcano. As in two other big volcanoes in this island, water filled up the crater and now it has two large lakes.

Our land as around 1400m2 and being volcanic in its origin, its soil is very fertile. We grow all different kind of vegetables but we also have had some problems. Last two years cutworms were our nightmare!
It can be a lovely garden all controlled or it can be a complete jungle with weeds growing everywhere, it all depends the time we have to work on it! Permacultur... more inside

I'm Lucas, 29 years old, my parents are German, and I was born and raised on this little farm living all my life in Portugal.
Since I was little I learned a bit about farming and in my early twenties I started to get enthusiastic about permaculture. Since 2012 I'm living full-time on the farm (except for a year in 2014) doing some projects at our place and in other farms around us.
Rafa (27) is my girlfriend and she is living with me since 2012. She is an amazing cook and very talkative! She's always happy to share stories and knowledge about portuguese culture.
My sister Leonie (21) is living with us in part-time, since she's studying Biomedical Engineering at Coimbra's University.

The house has a garden right at the entrance, some other gardens around the house, and a 2000m2 land that we are taking care since April, where I'm creating hugelbeet and making some experiences to improve the soil.
We have a Eco-shower working with shredded branches that by decompossing produce... more inside

We are searching for someone who can stay for minimum a month and can book both tickets (to and from Madeira) within a week.

Start date:
-September 15th (1 person)

Hi everyone! We're Philippe and Anna.
Since June 2013 we're running the first hostel on our beautiful island, 20 minutes walking from Funchal center. Ourselves being backpackers, our goal is to make the place a comfortable and homey place to stay for people who come to discover Madeira and find new friends.

The hostel itself is a big house with capacity of 22 people. Here we have a bit of everything - bunk-bedrooms, private rooms for couples or friends, shared living rooms.

The help we need is not hard to do, but requires day-to-day attention. The main help is about keeping the place presentable and clean, getting rooms ready for the guests and some small tasks. Usually all the tasks don't take longer than 3 - 4 hours of help total, so there's still enough time to go around:)
From time to time in the nigh... more inside

Early days on an ecological project to create a working model of accessible sustainability in the mountains of central Portugal.

We do have a small mediterrian plant nursery.
Here we do need help for all the different works, e.g. clearing the ground, cutting, potting plants.
And we really like to welcome motivated helpers for this kind of work, as it is a lot.
We prefer short time stays first with possibility to extend the stay, when everybody feels ok with it. And we normally ask for help in the mornings, so afternoons are free time for the helpers. As helper you should like to spend some free time by your own and you can use our bikes to go around.

Right now we need help with the plant nursery and selling plants on markets, beside keeping the pots clean, weeding and potting. And we need help in taking care of the whole plot, sometimes we also need somebody help us with painting or cleaning.

The accommodation for a helper will always be together with a bathroom, depending of the time of the year, it will be a guest-room or a caravan and we cannot guarantee Wifi.

We do live 8 km away from the next... more inside
