Working at the farm was a beautiful experience. The landscapes and nature of the place were beautiful. Gonçalo and his family have big hearts and were very kind and welcoming to me.

I have passed 1 month in the farm 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 ❤️
