More than a third of Portugal’s territory is covered in forests and a good part of the country is dedicated to agriculture, mainly for the production of wine, olive oil, and fruit, making it the ideal destination for those that want to work abroad on farms. For a more affordable trip, many permaculture institutes have opportunities open for those interested in working a few hours per day in exchange for accommodation.
Besides learning more about sustainability, you also get to see very beautiful landscape if you decide to travel to Portugal. Gouveia, Golegã, Ponta Delgada and Pilar de Bretanha are just a few cities with opportunities in eco-villas or ecological projects. Organic farms are also all over the country with tasks varying between construction, repairs, painting, planting, or caring for animals.
