We are a young at heart retired couple in the prime of youth in mind if not body which is why we need some help in our Gardens. During the month of May. Initially we are looking for Helpxers for 1 or 2 weeks who can turn their hands to general garden duties like weeding, pruning, cutting down dead trees, along with a variety of other tasks. With the help from other Helpx Sam Barbagallo who completely remodelled our koi pond and fitted a new liner a job well done! Also in 2017 we replaced all of the fencing to stop the dogs escaping and to keep our guests in as well! Our project for 2018 is to complete our 2017 project which was to convert our stables into kennels. This project will restart in the Autumn 2017.

Ancient Convent, recently restored, dating from the 17th century, in the middle of a farm with 4 ha situated right next to the beautiful village of Castelo de Vide and 10 km from Marvao.
The farm has olive trees, chestnut trees, fruit trees, a big well and a natural spring.
We are now in the process of starting a vegetable garden and doing some landscaping and we will need people to help us out with cleaning, trimming, planting, recovering walls and all kinds of agricultural work. Now we have some sheep and in the near future we will have donkeys, and chickens.
Inside the house there are lovely granite door frames that are painted and need to be brushed off and cleaned, furniture and windows need a little work (mainly sanding).
The Convent was built in 1639 and belonged to the religious order of Saint John of God until the 1800 when it was turned into a Military Hospital because of the Napeoleonic invasions. In the middle of the 19th century it was abandoned and became a ruin ... more inside

Hi,

Our names are Steve & Frances and we live in a small south facing Quinta or Farm in the heart of Portugal near the beautiful Sierra de Estrella mountains, which provide us with our breathtaking views. We travelled Europe in a camper van for 4 years doing volunteer work, before finally settling down here in Portugal. We decided to make our own piece of paradise and put into action all the things we learnt on our travels, to try and give something back to Mother Nature. We have only just started on our journey here and currently we have very limited facilities, but are working hard to improve them. We need the assistance of some energetic pioneer helpers who don't mind a little rough living for a short while. We aspire to Permaculture principles and design in all the things that we do, and would love to teach and learn at the same time, as we set about putting our ideas and designs into action.

We love to socialise and after the days work is done, enjoy a good beer or a nice... 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, on average, between 60 and 100 abandoned dogs and puppies. We are looking for volunteers to help look after the dogs for between 3 and 4 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 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 80 dogs last year and found homes for 100 in different countries throughout Europe and need voluntary help to continue this work. The work is very satisfying, fun and challeng... more inside

There is a beautiful spot in a valley. This land is now our garden, so if you like forrest farming-gardening, welcome.

We live a simple and healthy life. We have no internet(or not a good one-mobile connection)
or telephone reception, so low radiation.

For phone calls we walk up the hill, for internet we visit libraries or cafes.
There are 2 (caravans) or a tent available.

Although the location is remote, there is a big social network here with many like-minded back-to-the-land people.

We appreciate more or less 2-4 hours of work a day.

Activities are cleaning, building, collecting firewood, cooking and more.

We are (pretty) new at this and look foreward to some wonderful connections.


We are living on a 7 hectare Permaculture Forest Garden which we have developed over the last 14 years, it is a mature example and one of the largest in Europe.

We are aiming to be as self sufficient as poss and are currently extending our forest garden,designing and p... more inside
