Hello,
We are about to rebuild two country houses (casas de campo) in the middle of the pur nature of middle Portugal. The houses were part of a little village which got flooded in the 60s during the building of a barrage.
The location is in the middle of the forests in the region of Pedrogão Grande, next to the river, isolated from all civilisation and it is planed to create a special Natural Site for retreats.
The works to be done reach from gardening to wood-works, building dry stone walls, paintings, creative modelation of the natural terasses,.....
If you want to see more pictures of the region, have a look on my website.
For beginning of the year, around March, the accomodations in the new house (simple, but dry and warm in the new house) will be ready, so that we can continue the works in the house (paintings, technical stuff...) and around the house (gardens, terrasses, forrest cleanings, wood works...)
We would be happy to find helpers to enjoy a community work and s... more inside

Hello, my name Rosa I'm a 29 years old Algarve autoctone (that means that my family is from here and i was raise here also), i studied psychology in lisbon. I've met Manu (40 year old french baker) and we had Artur, our 2 year old energetic miracle. We felt the urge to return to my fathers lands, organic certified over 15 years now, to avoid their abandom in time and lost of all the tradicional oral knowledge regarding the managing of orchards in water scarcity situation. So we did. We've been here for 3 years now, transforming the old houses into ecoturism lodgments, searching a new strategy for making the farm profitable but also sustainable and self-suficient in food. Our aim is also to be self-suficient in energy by the end of the decade but because of the size of the farm and lack of economical recourses it's taking longer.
Our type of agriculture is 'natural' agriculture has we don't use any chemicals or even organic fertilizers, fertilize everything with menure from our ani... more inside

We live in old farmhouse which needs a little love and attention. The accommodation we offer is a double room in the house with a boisterous dog and aloof cat, so an animal lover is vital.

We are hoping to have help with painting both inside and, weather permitting, outside, as well as general maintenance and upkeep jobs.

We are renovating ruins on a South facing terraced site in the Minho region, a few minutes from Galicia (Spain). There are three main elements of work involved:

1. Building things: structures from wood, stone, lime and earth / clay.

2. New technology ventures: solar cooking, heating, biomass heating, biogas, LED lighting, watermill power. Finding ways to create and conserve energy for free and with little environmental impact.

3. Gardens and food. Using permaculture design systems to restore fertility and high productivity to abandoned terraces. Local soil is of a high acid content. By applying organic material and nitrogen fixers, we aim to achieve better PH balance and enhance soil quality.

Guests are welcome to a great outdoor covered shower heated with solar and wood, an enormous outdoor oak table fit for the feasts of elven Kings, a bread and pizza oven we built and a fully functional outdoor kitchen. We don't have a lot of indoor sleeping space, but we have ar... more inside
