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.

This autumn we are looking for help with quite physical work, involving digging - swales on the hillsides, holes for tree-planting. There are trees to plant,acorns to put in the ground, organic matter to carry about for mulching,paths and steps to make, in fact more stuff to conveniently list! Also, gathering berries from the hillside bushes, and some gardening also.

A couple would be welcome.

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 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.
