Host NO025

We are Pedro and Nádia that started this agriculture project in 2012 when we returned to Pedro's birth town (Bragança) and wanted to revive the abandoned family lands.
Now (2018) our family grew and we have also Afonso 4 years, and Gaspar 2 years that love the farm a lot.

We have several interests and working focuses:
- Bees, polinization and honey
- Condiment herbs
- Mushrooms
- small and wild fruits
- Vegetables inside and outside greenhouse
- Fruit trees
- Ecological construction

We are still in an implementation phase so we are happy to receive anyone who want to share and help to build this project.
This implies the work can be very diverse and that we will need to think and decide a lot on subjects.

Our inspiration is permaculture and we try to learn and help nature.
We have technical help in organic farming but most of the stuff we try to learn ourselfs

ACCOMODATION
From the end of 2017 we have a house in a small vilage near the farm for the volunteers.
Its cold in winter but there is a fireplace and lots of blankets.
There is also a warehouse in the fields that we are still finishing and you can also camp there.

FOOD
We usually prepare dinner and the next lunch in the night, and eat lunch in the beautiful country side. But if the weather is bad or we dont have time to prepare it before, we come home and make it. Everything we'll be decided together with the group available at the time.
We have a vegetarian diet but you are free to add anything you want to it at your responsibility.

WORK TIME
We are still trying to find the best solution. Lets define 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.
This is the minimum each person must dedicate to work the farm.
If we are a big group, some people manage the lunch and that time counts as work.

OTHER STUFF
We can provide you a bike.
