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.

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 have 3 volunteers here already for the whole winter, and could do with one extra in the month of February, up to the 26th. Work will be involved with tree-planting and pruning and grafting, and some landscaping and gardening.

We are 6km from Aljezur, the nearest small town, 34 km north of Lagos, 15km from the nearest beaches. We have bicylcles for borrowing.

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.
