Welcome to Varzea da Gonçala

We are a working project with lots of varied activity,and those wanting to learn about permaculture and its ways will have plenty of opportunity to do so.

This winter we are looking for help mostly involving digging swales and terraces, so it is important to realise that this work is quite physical and demanding. For this reason we ask for only 4 hours per day, but that there is a good commitment to work.

How do we live? Working on developing the Várzea to be low-maintenance and a productive diverse ecosystem. WWOOFers share the communal kitchen, often we all eat together but not always.

We are 6km east of Aljezur, the nearest small town, 34 km north from Lagos, 15km from the nearest beaches.

There is a bus from Lisboa to Aljezur. From Faro, there is a train to Lagos, then a bus to Aljezur, from where we collect you.
