Host CE146

Hello everyone! Our family is part of a group of 17 people from all over the world that got themselves together to join forces and energy and make the difference that we want to see around!
2011 was the start of our big adventure, together we bought 40ha of land in the Beira Alta area of Portugal.

The land is pure and wild, has 1,5 km of river that crosses with some waterfalls most of the year. We are totally off-the-grid: only renewable energies as a source of electricity, compost toilets and water from a mine.
We are still setting the physical, emotional and spiritual bases of our common spaces. ...
We are Dreamers, open-minded people and life followers.

Now we have maintenance work in the house and surrounding areas of the house. We also started a garden!! and is a big one :) We also need some extra hands in there!!. We need all the help we can have before winter comes!! Fire wood is also a priority now!!

We work a lot in keeping the budget very very low (with the three \"r\"s principle: recycle, reuse, repair :-)
Our showering facilities are very simple with solar showers, also composting toilets and super cozy corners in the woods :D that's for sure!!

We can provide some tents if requested.
Our preferences are:
To host 4 helpers at the time!!
That helpers stay minimum 2 weeks!
Work 6 hours p-day and take sunday off!!

We are a family of two adults, 2 teenagers and a 5 years old kid, so the dynamics should respect the needs of the children for play and rest!
We ask you to bring, sleeping bag , environmentally friendly hygiene products, your snacks and little things that make you feel comfortable;

If you think it might be an experience for you and you are willing to help us please let us know soon in order to make a more realistic and proper plan for all of us, we can only host 4 people at the time!
You can arrive any day till 8pm. There are buses ”Rede Expressos” that arrive to Satão that is 10 km from us and we can pick you up! Please communicate your intentions at least 1 week before you're coming.
Thank you, even if only use your time to Read US :)
Love, Li and Gui
