Care of People – Care of the Earth – Share the Surplus. Permaculture is a creative and artful way of designing our lives, where wastes become resources, productivity and yields increase, work is minimized, people and nature are preserved – all by thoughtful planning and a respectful approach to life. Thus embraced, we create an environment where all may thrive for untold generations. We as humans have the ability to re-design the world we live in. All it takes is desire, know how, will, and time. Even if it takes 50-100 years, the change can begin with each one of us right now and the effects of our work can have beneficial consequences for generations to come. The goal of permaculture is to create harmonious relationships with all aspects of our life, to learn how to live abundantly well without hurting or polluting our surroundings and actually leave the planet in better condition than when we arrived on it. permaculture invites us to look at our homes, our uses and sources of energy, our methods for providing food and comfortable shelter, our work, our relationships with others, and even our relationship with ourselves. As in Yoga, permaculture is essentially a spiritual approach to living consciously, harmoniously and healthfully on the planet. We can heal this planet. We can live lightly and we can live well. We can each make a difference... a big difference.

We feel concerned about the environment and make our choices for materials and gardening as much as possible in accordance. Our meals are simple, nourishing and vegetarian. We love working and are addicted! Sometimes we work very hard and often all day long. Herefore we expect you to be independent for your spare time and when we're not around. and we would gladly welcome someone with an environmentally-friendly outlook and willingness to help, mostly in the garden (splitting wood for the winter planting trees and fencing them, clearing brambles, collecting wood and shredding it with a shredder for mulching, collecting leaves and helping prepare a compost heap, weeding and planting in the vegetable garden, etc ON our place is smoking and drugs not allowed

Learning & Fun




A place to put your breath in the center of your attention. You need to be okay with the silence or learn to practise it. I learned more about a lifestyle and a very different way to behave with each other than people are used to in towns than farming. I recommend this place cause there arent twice like that and people are open to teach you everything as much as it comes from you. Ill always remember my time there. The shared experiences and smile of Najuka, the voice of Shaan, the peacefullness of Peregrina, and the stability of Wolfgang.

I felt home immediately. Meeting Perigrina and Shera was wonderful. Although some moments at the place were heavy in energie.. I learnt more and more to keep on breathing. And then the love flows back. Back in every movement you make, in every task you do and in the contact with yourself and with the people and animals around you.

I can’t describe the way Perigrina, Shera and Shaan made me feel welcome and loved. Thank you so much. See you somewhere somehow 🌀

And loved to work with the goats and in the garden.

Listening closely to how you feel when you leave gives the real outlook on an experience.
For us the time spent with Najuka, Shaan, Peregrina and Shera was such a genuine human experience we could not ask for more.
Place is isolated but stunning, perfect to slow down. Work is fair, diverse and interesting. Being proactive and independent are keys to the success for your staying.
Hosts might not feel overtly communicative at first, but do spend the time to be around them, discover them and show interest: magic will happen and you will get to know amazing souls.
Thank you!

Our experience was amazing and definitely left a mark on our hearts.

The landscape is breathtaking, place is big and well advanced in organic farming.

Tasks are diverse and interesting, you will learn and pass through all the steps to grow food.

It took patience and some time to understand and consolidate communication with hosts.

We advise to be independent and take initiative in your way of working and living in the farm.

Respect common spaces. Of course hosts are there in case of questions or needs.

The room is comfortable and able to welcome couples.

The farm is beautifully located in the Monchique Hills and is truly an incredible place.
The work was fair, although wouldn't be opposed to even more at times.
The host were welcoming and warm and will defiantly be back! :)
