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

We live in a beautiful small hamlet nestled in the hills of central Portugal. There are four houses which until recently lay abandoned for 60 years. The river Pera runs through the valley (we have a great swimming hole) and a spring delivers our drinking water. We, Miguel and Shobha, live here with our seven year old son, Saul, and four year old daughter, Anaya, and are restoring part of the hamlet and reclaiming the land. We are planting trees, setting up an organic permaculture garden and provide a retreat and workshop space.

Helpers are needed for a vast array of tasks! These include landscaping, clearing, cleaning, cooking, childcare, gardening, tree-felling, pointing, dry-wall restoration ... and more! Accomodation is either in tipis or a self-contained room. The set up is basic but comfortable. We have a solar set up for electricity & wifi. We will also provide 3 nourishing, vegetarian meals. We ask for 5 hours work per day, 5 days a week. We welcome nature-loving, commu... more inside

Work Hard and Play Often! Asian Atlantis provides opportunities to learn organic farming, integrated with Permaculture principles and local techniques.

I am an organic farmer doing Permaculture, a registered artisan fiber artist, a trained massage therapist and a highly educated Jane-of-all-trades. I started a new sustainable living project and try to do things with a small carbon footprint. I have eleven years experience living off grid, doing an independent living project. I am a single mother with two boys, ages six and four, Odin and Mitra. I need help in the gardens, feeding rabbits, caring for sheep, chickens, and caring for the children. Work exchange with me means that you will have a bedroom of your own, work about four days (total of 25 hours a week), have three days off, have all meals provided, all housing, and you will be integrated as a family member. You will be treated with respect and dignity and nothing will be asked of you that I myself cannot or will not d... more inside

Hello,
We are a young couple just moved from Belgium to Portugal to start an organic farm. We arrived at the end of July and offcourse there is a lot of work to be done. We're leaving most of the veggie garden for next year due is is to late for a lot of crops. Our main focus now is renovating the stable to have good accomodation for our volunteers. Putting renewable energy systems in place. Putting some fences and trees this winter so we are ready to go 100% next spring. We aim to be as much self sufficient as possible in food and energy, but offcourse this takes a lot of time, money and effort.
We have a big caravan for you or you with a friend to sleep in (it has 2 dubble beds). Hopefully with some help we have the stable clean and heated by winter.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us by phone or email.

After having been a helper, I'm happy to be a host!
I have land with a ruin waiting for building licence approval. In the meantime, I am living in a yurt and there are lots of living arrangements to be done, as well as land maintenance. There is no power nor water (a spring downhill where we shower -see picture), or toilets. So no optimal conditions yet but people who like to be in nature would love it. And for 1 or 2 weeks that's really a great experience!
The village (with 3 bars and 1 1/2 shop) is a 5 min drive or reachable by foot, beach a 15 min drive. If you want to explore, there are lots of forest tracks.

I could use some company to get more motivated and also I realize that being 2 persons does not multiplies the amount of work being done by 2 but by 5 at least!
Current projects I need help with are:
- building a shed (this one is urgent and requires someone with building skills)
- building cob rocket stove and roofs for the outside kitchen
- building compost ... more inside

Welcome fun, happy helpxers:)) IT is a lot to ask of anyone! Because everything needs doing here atm.
Small farm, back to basics,but it really is basic, no power, no livable house, would only suit really tough people that can cope without these things, the toilet atm is only a hole in the ground. I really need help with getting this small neglected farm back to what it may have been quite some years ago, with the aim of being self sufficient in time. The ruin is being rebuilt, using eco building methods. I`d love to hear from anyone who has an interest in permaculture and natural building with earth and lime, The farm is situated near a quaint little village in central Portugal. There are great places to visit locally, and some very inviting lakes to swim in when it`s too hot. Help is needed in many areas as the farm is very neglected, everything needs doing. no skills necessary, just an enthusiasm for mucking in. I am very basic atm so only people that can cope without lifes lux... more inside
