volunteer with us

We are often looking for volunteers to help us with various projects and share skills. Ellis is a highly experienced builder and has many skills to share, so people always gain a lot from their experience with us. There are various types of projects to get involved in including – working the land, building, cooking, eco-projects and looking after the animals (currently a dog and cat! But we hope to have more soon)

We offer free board, food and yoga in exchange for 25 hours per week for a 3 week minimum stay. On days off you can explore the area, we have a lake about 45 minutes walk from here and there is a free bus that runs to Monchique 4 days per week, 3 times per day and often there is a trip to the beach once per week during the summer months.

In return for sharing 25 hours of your time you’ll receive:

  • full board (food and comfortable lodgings sometimes shared with a volunteer of the same sex)
  • a healthy vegetarian diet
  • laundry facilities
  • *yoga (5 days per week/weather permitting)
  • learn new skills
  • a reference if needed
  • a cheap holiday
  • meet new like minded people

*please note if Camilla is away we can’t provide yoga

Many of our volunteers have come from the Workaway website where we advertise but if you are interested in joining us you can also contact us directly by emailing ellisb4@hotmail.com and we’ll arrange a WhatsApp or Skype call.

We hope you come and join us!
