Dear Volunteer:

Please read ALL THE PROFILE to be completely informed of what are the conditions of volunteering in Quinta da Bazágueda. Especialy, keep in mind the following:

Quinta da Bazágueda is a very ancient farm. It's a farm, in it's true meaning, not a house with a garden or little field with crops. Beeing an ancient farm, it has very basic acomodation. The houses are from the 16th century or older, so they are cold in winter, of course. If you come in a rainy day, as in all rainy days, the farm work must go on and some of the tasks cannot be delayed. Also keep in mind that it's not possibly to make a specific food for you if you have a very diferent diet from "most" people. We always have vegetable soop, so if you're vegetarian you're welcome to come, but if the rest of the team is having meat, with plain rice you can have soop with rice, but not a spec... more inside

This is a small BnB in the middle of Portugal and 30km from the coast. There is a main-building, 2 little guesthouses and a garden (about 1200m2)
We, Richard, Maryk and Vincent bought the quinta in 2008 and are building and rebuilding the place ever since. We did, and do everything ourselves.

From masonry walls, until designing and making furniture. Preferably from old material. Lots of recycling.
Now we have two activities going on, a BnB and a sound and light company.

So there is always a lot of different kind of work to do.
We decide each day which activity we choose to do. Depending on the weather or just what we like to do.

Such as: the continuing story of (re)building
Helping in the sound business, making cables, painting speaker boxes etc, cleaning and helping with the guests of the B&B.

But most of all we need help for the garden!

With three sound engineers in the house we never learned properly gardening. So we are kind of fighting a losing battle agains... more inside

We are a self supporting organic farm and our main activity is goat cheese production. Our farm exists since 1984, when we built our farm starting just with a few goats. Nowadays, the farm accounts more than 100 goats, 10 black pigs and 20 chickens.
We are located in a small valley near a water reservoir, and the entire farm is surrounded by forest and different types of agrarian and wild landscape. Our land is built in small terraces, where we grow all the vegetables we eat, fruits, corn for bread baking, olives for oil and grapes for juice, additionally we also grow all the animal feed we need for our livestock.
Almost all of our food comes from our farm, which includes vegetables, olive oil, pig, chicken and goat meat. During all year we need help from volunteers in a variety of activities, which includes planting, weeding, watering, crop harvesting, cutting food for the animals, making hay, olive harvesting, cleaning manure out of the stables, grape juice making, amongst oth... more inside

We are living (family with one child, 15 years old) in a rural area in the middle of Portugal. We need somebody to help my wife in the house and to do garden work also. If you can teach our child by learning another language it will be fine also.

The helper is invited to eat with us but there is an outside kitchen also.

We are a German (Franz 33) and Polish (Kasia 26) couple who both enjoyed traveling for the last years individually and together. We speak English (both), German (Franz), some French (Franz), Polish (Kasia) some Spanish (Kasia) and we are very interested in learning Portuguese. 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 PDC program. Kasia in 2018 here in Portugal and Franz back in 2016 in Croatia. Kasia also likes to practice Yoga and would love to share and exchange the practice experience.

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). 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, planning to do some natural buildin... more inside

Ecology and sustainable living are at the heart of everything here at the CdC project. After many years preparing the infrastructure, our public activity centre is nearing completion. This will include a cafe and general purpose venue for exhibitions, education, entertainment and various clubs (sewing, motorbikes, language etc etc). At this stage of the project we would be particularly interested to talk with professional people who might be interested in a longer term paid proposition in areas of management including building and gardens development and maintenance as well as marketing and business development. In the short term we would welcome someone with carpentry experience and or general building / DIY experience.
