Quinta do Vale is an off-grid permaculture project of 2ha in the foothills of the Serra do Açor near the village of Benfeita. It's an evolving education and demonstration site for many aspects of sustainable living and I'm 8 years into the project now. The land is steeply terraced with vegetable gardens, fruit trees and vines, some olives, chestnut woodland, a stream, ponds and ancient stone-built waterways, a developing biodome with aquaponics system, a coniferous plantation under conversion to deciduous woodland, a growing food forest, and several buildings being constructed and renovated using natural materials and techniques.

In 2017 the various buildings, the geodome greenhouse and the permaculture design work were all coming into the final phases of completion. Then in October we, along with countless others throughout Central Portugal, were hit by the unprecedented and catastrophic wildfires which burned 2,000 square kilometres over the course of just 24 hours.

We are a German (Franz 32) 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

Hi Welcome to Dove Farm, we are an eco project within a larger eco project !

Special Notice: In August and September 2018 we need practical people to help in constructing the straw bale round house walls with cob and lime rendering. Experience of some sort would be preferable.

We are lovingly restoring this abandoned quinta, it has a stone farm house, a small barn/workshop and another small stone building as well as three large fields, and a small woodland. There is also an amazing water mine and various wells. The woodland was planted around 40 years ago, we are currently in the process of regenerating it with native trees and nurturing the oaks, chestnut, wild cherry and hawthorn that already growing. Our plan is to create a mixed broadleaf woodland, encouraging the native tree species, fauna and flora.

Hey, do you like art projects?, weeding? Plaiting? Eating flowers? ??, if you are into mountains and rivers and nature away from it all, this is a great area. The house is spacious and cool. Caravan and tents too. Food is simple and yummy.
This year we are working on beautifying the concrete shed with a mosaic, painting the caravan, restoring old furniture and giving them some zing, working on trees and planting and weed control too.
Lots of little and big projects.
I’m a former midwife and enjoy meeting new people and sharing experiences and learning new things.

You'll help me maintain the garden, banana plantation vegetables and other trees, composting, housekeeping, some construction, upcycling and welcoming guests for my Airbnb space. I love working with permaculture, dry toilets, bio-construction, fungal and bacterial worlds, arts and spiritualism. I have a very good network of friends and people that work on sustainability in the island, Portugal mainland and even world like. I have done independent volunteering in Haiti after the big earthquake with GiveLove NGO, working on compost toilets with Joe Jenkins (Humanure Handbook), Hamish Skermer (Natural Event) and Patricia Arquette (actress and NGO founder). I have also managed, develop and scaled up the dry toilets and food waste composting departments at Boom Festival in 2008, 2010 and 2012.

Postponed: Gilbert is convalescing following a stroke in March 2018. We do not know when we will be able to continue with this project. Please keep a lookout for updates.

The property is set in 6,000 square meters. It has a lot of fruit trees and an empty field. The long-term project is to grow and preserve enough fruit and vegetables to be self-sufficient.
There are two flats on the property, we occupy one of them. The house is habitable but needs a few finishing touches. There is no heating yet and so we do not live there during the winter months.
When we are there to supervise the work, volunteers are invited to stay in the other flat or can also stay in our small caravan which is close to the house. Both the flat and the caravan can sleep 2 people. If you would like more independence then there is plenty of room to pitch a tent. You can connect to our WiFi in the flat or the caravan. Please do not smoke inside.
During your stay, you will be provided with three... more inside

Hello everyone!
After five years of great experiences with Helpx, with lots of exchange and beautiful new friends, we are looking again for international helpers interested in art, architecture, design, collective urban action and a lot of fun (and a lot of work) in Lisbon. For 6h a day and 5 days a week work. 3-5 week stay. The tasks will be described in our first email after a skype meeting.

briefly: We started our project in 2013 during the architecture triennial in Lisbon out of an interest in interdisciplinary research in the realm of temporary and immediate architectural action in public spaces. We are a team of four collaborating with many others.
After some successful collaborations with awesome HelpX volunteers, we want to invite you to join us again for new projects starting June 2018!
Please note we offer accommodation ONLY! But we try our best to offer lunch during individual building workshops.
