THE FARM
Hello, we are an organic farm with 6 hectares., providing the development of natural autochthon vegetation and introducing the tropical vegetation creating a new balance and sustainable ecosystem with nature as our priority. We have bee hives for pollination.

We produce organic fruits and vegetables from the most common to the most exotic (aubergine, pumpkins, peppers, strawberries, watermelons, moringa, papayas, guavas, bananas, avocados ...).

We sell our products at local and alternative markets in the Algarve. We love to share and inspire our clients with uncommon and healthy food.

The farm is located on top of a small village, 10 min from the sea, 20 min from the forest. The surrounding is amazing with wonderful area for bird watching, hiking, biking, mushroom picking, fishing, and much more.

THE WORK
The work is diverse, depending on the season and the weather. You could for example plant seeds, clean the plants, harvest seeds, veggies and fruits, improving soil dynamic, make the compost and so much more.

We are also building a natural material house. So, it might require help with the wood, taipa and rock construction.

The work is always done with the notion of going in the way of self-sustainability, and harmony with nature, making a cleaner better world. The working atmosphere is pleasant and dynamic, and you are also welcoming to teach us new stuffs.

The work is from Monday to Saturday, approximately 6 hours per day. The Saturday is dedicated to the market in Lagos including preparing the boxes and the stand and selling the products to the clients.

There usually are several volunteers at the same time.

LIVING
We have a big container and some van\rooms for you to live with a wooden outside kitchen, toilet and a hot shower. There are some nice spots for you to camp or park your caravan with an amazing country and ocean view.

The meals are shared together and mostly vegetarian coming from our own production.
