We are a sustainable gardening and tourism family business in Ponta Delgada, which we run in a 17th century farmhouse recently refurbished with all the mod-coms. We aim to have an inspiring project that will help tourists and locals to regard sustainable practises as part of their daily lives, and as such we have incorporated as many eco-techniques and demonstration areas as we could into our overall design. We have a range of organic gardens and orchards, a biological swimming pool, a reed bed system, compost toilets and composting areas, and renewable systems for water heating. We are passionate about our work and about gardening. We love travelling and meeting people and so we look forward to hosting travellers who can enjoy S. Miguel in exchange for awesome accommodation and a a bit of hard work in meaningful tasks! We have two accommodation options: one indoor double bedroom with its own WC, and we also have very good sheltered camping areas in the garden, where you can access compost toilets and several outbuildings, as well as a fully kitted bathroom indoors for hot showers, shared with other volunteers and staff members.
