The Experience

We are a young couple with some experience on self-sufficient-living that in 2015 got a piece of land close to a small growing community of close friends in a beautiful valley at the highest mountains inside the biggest natural park of our country. We need help on creating a Natural Farm to support our small eco-community!

I have passed 1 month in Quinta Regadinha and it has been a really good experience. It has been my first work away and I am really happy. Rita, Goncalo and Dana are really kind and they are happy to help in every work, and explain if you have doubts. The activitis were divided between the constructions and the garden. The moment I was there we were working for 3 hours each day. The volunteers had the meals in our own kitchen, what was really nice for cooking all together and know better each others.

I am happy about this staying. It brought me the opportunity to know more about an alternative way of living, a really peaceful one and definitely not against nature! During this 2 weeks I enjoyed working to improve the Permaculture Farm. I felt I was in paradise, surrounded by water, plants, animals and very nice people. I am glad for Gonçalo and Rita because they have reached their dream of living more in contact with earth. Also fell in love with their lovely daughter Dana.
Muito obrigado ❤️

I expected to practice my portuguese and learn something about Permaculture, but I didn't learn anything. Just wasted my time and money. Volunteers don't work with the host, and outside working hours, the boss, I mean the hosts stay on one side of the property and the volunteers on another side. Really felt like an unpayed job. I was happy to see others volunteers arrive, because the first days it was just me and the spiders (don't stay in the roundhouse if you don't like to wake up with spiders on your face)..and flies, millions of flies.
There was no wifi but a guitar. That was cool.

We feel very sad that Loic is not capable to be social and communicate is needs and instead he decides to write lies about us. After deciding not to help us for one morning he stayed for the weekend and the left us without a warning.
