Monte da Casteleja

We enjoy meeting new people with their own experience and initiative.
We like to open our farm to people with true good feelings for nature that love working outside. We are looking for woofers that like teamwork, being autonomous and reliable.
Accomodation is very simple and basic.
Volunteers sleep in a nice and small house, made from a container and covered in wood.
The kitchen is in the outside, only partly covered with a roof.
Shower (WITH hot water) has a roof but the walls are very rustic.
The toilet is a compost toilet, which means it has no water - it works with wood chips)
It is a beautiful place full of positive energy and great for people seeking a simple life experience, contact with nature and learning the daily life of a farm.

Volunteers are responsible for preparing their own meals. We provide all the ingredients.
Our diet is mainly vegetarian (we also eat some fish) but if you have a different diet or a special request regarding food, we can talk about it.
Internet access near the main house.
As we already have 4 dogs - 2 girls and 2 boys - it is not easy to receive a new animal visitor. If you are traveling with your pet friend, please tell us in advance and explain us his characteristics/bahaviour, so we can decide if if we have the conditions to host him/her too.
Please bring natural hygiene products, as we don't want to contaminate our water and soil. Thank you!
The tasks are always different during the season and depending on the type of growing.
We mostly need help for weeding, pruning, bottling, sowing, harvesting and cleaning.
