We are developing a permaculture project in the heart of Alto Alentejo (Portugal) and you will be able to learn and share your knowledge in the scope of sustainability, agroecology and permaculture. Paintings, natural constructions, restorations and creative arrangements are also one of the areas of our work. In addition to these activities, you can enjoy walks and trails, dive in the lagoon, Alentejo / Portuguese cuisine and music.Learn more

Semente libre is a green oasi in the middle of a beautiful landscape, perfect to feel in the middle of nature.
My stay went well, Mafalda is a great chef of Portuguese vegetarian dishes, salads and soups, and Jeronimo really patiently explains you so many things, about permaculture, Portugal and stay connected with nature, probably while you are having a delicious dish together.
Joana and Jil are two great children, they speak some English and are willing to help, share and learn anything they can.
I should have planned a longer stay, 10days have gone so fast, but I’m sure I will be back.

My time in Semente Livre has been quite special. Mafalda and Geronimo are amazing people, open-minded and full of positive energy. The place is cosy and well equipped, with the option to sleep inside a traditional Portuguese cottage in the weekdays or a big tent. We mainly worked on the organic garden and agroforestry, which were among my favourite passions. We had fantastic jam nights at the fireplace when they stayed for the night and their son and daughter are great musicians and companions too. Huge thank you for all the beautiful things you shared, and I hope to meet you again soon :)

Semente Livre lo mejor! Así de simple. Mafalda y Jehronimo son excelentes y muy cariñosas personas, aprendimos mucho de permacultura, pero también conocimos lugares, personas y momentos que nunca olvidaremos. Sin duda recomendado para cualquier viajero/a que quiera experimentar un lugar agradable y tranquilo.
Nos vamos con nuevos amigos y mil historias por contar.
La mejor primera experiencia para nosotros.
