PLEASE READ THIS TEXT VERY CAREFULLY AND ATTENTIVELY!! THE MAIN TASKS AND RULES ARE WRITTEN HERE!!!
Hello beautiful people!!! :D
We, here in A Quintinha da Liz, welcome you and invite you to experience how it is to live on the campsite, to depend on Mother Nature and live in strict communion with Her!!
We are 100% organic, we Reduce the waste at the minimum, we Reuse the most we can, and Recycle what we can’t! We make compost, we have our own seeds and trade seeds with other organic farmers, we have a dry-toilet, and we are now starting to do eco-building! We also want to apply some solar panels and build a natural swear. We save and reuse water!! Our most precious gift from Mother Nature!!
A Quintinha da Liz is a farm with several fruit trees (orange, peach, cherry, fig, apple, pear, lemon, persimmon, walnut, hazelnut, ...), many fruit shrubs (Blueberry, blackberry, Araçá, ...), and many, many other beautiful plants!! We have an amazing mandala shape vegetable garden!! (That last year several WWOOFERS helped on accomplished the dream!;) it became OUR dream!!!) A garden with medicinal herbs, and many other flower gardens that need our attention!!!
We have cats, bees, cats, dogs, cats,chickens, a goat and more cats!!! We love animals a lot!!! We love them, we respect them, they belong to the farm and they belong to the family, we appreciate that whoever comes respect and love them also. If you don’t like/appreciate animals that much it’s not worth it to come!! Please, this is really important!!
Since January to January we have always work to do: cutting wood, cleaning cellars, taking care of animals and clean their facilities, seeding, planting, pruning trees, weeding, mulching, harvesting, cooking preserves with the leftovers from the farm, ordering stuff, gathering straw, watering, .... the normal maintenance of a farm!!
We often do jams, liquors and other preserves with the fruit and vegetables that we don’t consume or that we don’t sell. We sell our products directly to the consumer or in markets, if you like you can help in this task too!!
We aim to start doing essencial oils, hopefully this year!!
Our aim this year is to start a community! The huge house that exists in the farm is divided in several smaller houses that can be completely independent. We just want to have the pleasure of being in the same energy with persons and with Nature!!
If you are looking for a place to stay longer than one month, you are totally welcome to come and experience life in A Quintinha da Liz!!!
We are in a deep connection with Nature and therefore with ourselves so we meditate, do yoga, some times Chi-Kung and Tai-Chi and other practices that help us connect with our inner being, being in peace with us, and love the world!! If you want, you can join us!!
We have enough land if you want to start your own vegetable/herbs garden, as long as in an organic way!!!
We have places away from the plantations where you can rest and be in peace with yourself and with Nature, really beautiful and magic places!
We eat essentially vegan, but we eat honey from our bees (or from an organic farmer that is our friend), and eggs from our chickens. We appreciate that people don’t cook meat or fish, only if it is strictly necessary!!
We give preference to people who want to stay one month ore longer, but if you really want to come but can’t stay that much, just send a message and we can talk!!
A Quintinha da Liz cooperate in harmony with several other farmers and WWOOF hosts, we normally visit them and work with them, so it can be a double or triple experience coming to A Quintinha da Liz!!!
Hope to see you soon!!!
Smile always!!! :D
When can you visit this host?
