Hello everyone!

I'm currently living in the beautiful algarve on a beautiful 1ha property where I'm transforming a warehouse into a loft, and want to arrange the property in a permaculture way....
And I could have some help building a wooden house. Basic handyman skills are sufficient, the rest you will learn from me by doing.
I hope I could tickle something in someone of you.
So maybe Cu soon.
All the best, Jochen

Looking for people now.

WHO WE ARE
We are a family of 3, Erica (Mum), Panama (daughter) and Gary (daughter's partner). Early in 2016 we bought 2 acres of land that sits atop a hill looking out at the Serra do Acor. The view is stunning landscape with hardly a building or a light to be seen. The land faces south and is blessed with olive trees. We had a small mixed woodland and many fruit trees but these were burnt in the forest fire of October 2017, so we had to fell the woodland but we have 100 new trees coming in September 2019 to re-plant the woodland - walnut, pine nut, oak, cork, medronho, chestnut are we are planting a new orchard of fruit trees, peach, apple, fig, nespera, medronho, yellow plum, purple plum, apricot, chestnut, hazel, tangerine, orange, lemon, persimmon,pear. We also have a good sized veg plot. We grow everything organically and are aiming to grow the bulk of our food. We are vegetarian/vegan so veggies are the mainstay of our diet. We have 2 wells for i... more inside

Help needed shepherding goats, cheese making and gardening.

Nestled in a shallow valley over one thousand meters up on the top of the Serra De Estrella mountains is our isolated farm. We keep a number of different animals, mainly goats which need walking on a daily basis. There are lots of tasks we need help with to bring this farm back to working capacity.

We are a small family of three, me Emily 34, Sam 34, recently arrived Connie, just over 1 year. Almost three years ago we brought one of the abandoned "casais de Folgosinho", featured in the documentary "Ainda Ha Pastores". We feel a strong responsibility to bring this place back to life and to show it the respect it deserves.

Me (Emily) and Sam spent 3 years travelling and volunteering here in Portugal before moving here. During our travels we have learnt a bit about permaculture principles, wild food and organic farming. In our previous lives, Sam was a sheet metal worker, and me a digital designer. We want to use all... more inside

Hello dear friends of nature! My name is Andi, original from Switzerland but living in this beautiful area of Portugal since 25 years. The farm is embeded in a national park. I'm not really a farmer. My idea was (and still is) to build up a natural growing landscape. But the nature needs a little assist..and this means work. Too much for only one person.
I'm looking for allrounders, people who like to work outdoors...gardening,watering,planting trees,cuting brambles,pickin' olives and so on. But are also able to work with wood,all kind of repairings on the two houses,paintings,etc.
I can offer free accomodation. You live in a small apartement with bedroom and a little kitchen.
Almost forgot to mention my friendly dog Zora. She likes to go for a walk..;) Musicians are very welcome. Rehearsal-room available. Music is my hobby..and my love.
I prefere long therm stay, at least one month, if possible.
Any questions...just contact me!

Hi there, thanks for choosing to read our entry :))
We live on a small farm (2.5 hectares) inland of Central Portugal, 30km from the Spanish border in a beautiful wild area. From our land you can see the mountain of Monsanto (Sacred Mountain).
We have 80 olive trees, 250 vines, various fruit trees and an ever-expanding vegetable garden.
We are restoring the land; planting trees and digging ponds and swales. We are working towards a food forest, self-sufficiency, and money-less living. Those are our ultimate goals!
Volunteers will be working on any of the land projects: digging garden beds, planting trees, watering the nursery, working in the veggie garden or helping us build because we are still in the process of creating structures.
We like to use natural methods of building and work with reclaimed materials as much as possible.
We are designing our property along the lines of permaculture principles. A friend recently called our life-style 'natural living'. We don't reall... more inside

We are a registered animal protection society near Vila do Bispo in the South Western Algarve in Portugal. We have a dog sanctuary with up to 100 abandoned dogs and puppies at any one time. We are looking for volunteers to help look after the dogs for between 4 and 6 hours per day. The work involves feeding them and ensuring they have sufficient water, cleaning the areas, spending time with them, helping to train them, walking them, making sure they have enough shade and shelters and maintaining the pounds. All our dogs live in large pounds with space to run and play with other dogs they get along with. They all have proper shaded areas, with comfy beds and trees or bushes for shade too. They are all happy, this is not a sad shelter! Portugal has a large number of abandoned and unwanted dogs. We sterilised over 85 dogs last year and found homes for 105 in different countries throughout Europe. This year we have found homes for 83 so far. We need voluntary help to continue o... more inside

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

Hey we are Manuel & Zuzu, living on a small farm with three pigs, 2 dogs and cats.

We have mixed roots, Manuel (29) is half Portuguese and German; whereas Zuzu (26) is a mix of German, Lebanese and Swedish. We are an active couple, enjoying surfing, ninjutsu & yoga for instance. We love to travel, meet different cultures and we especially love cooking and eating good & healthy food (as you are what you eat).

We try to get back to the roots by being self-sufficient and working in harmony with nature isntead of against it.

We look for volunteers, that share the interest of a healthy lifestyle and would want to exchange work (4h a day, 6 days a week- but we are flexible) for food, accomodation and the experience of living with us on our little farm. We only just build a little house on the land here and there are heaps of projects to do.

Currently we need someone with experience in wood work- a carpenter to help us with some construction work.

We are excited to meet ... more inside
