About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

I am the proud owner of 2 houses inside a farm named "Quinta da Canada" with more than 12 000,00 square metres located sligthly higher than the village, with fantastic views to it but also to a coastline without any building. It has views to the Sunset and to the Rising Sun filled with good vibes and energies. Overwhelming views to the sea and direct access to the beach are a special treasure.
Both houses being one small and the other fairly big have nice caractheristics and do provide a sense of tranquility. These houses are to be fixed and there are planned uses for them.
In the farm there are quite a few areas to be worked on in view to be holístic areas, leasure areas, garden areas, picnic and barbecue areas, bar and restaurant areas with esplanades, viewpoint areas, outdoor gym, sports areas and activities áreas. An area by the sea to host a Nautical Activities Center with Diving, Kayaks and others.
Ecological concerns to be addressed.
Music & Art Festival to be implemented.
Other events to be implemented.
Workshops on various areas to be implemented.
Traditional construction to be considered.
On the gardens are places traditionally being used for camping by many scouts and visitors which are served with water fountains, showers, ecological bathroom, barbecue, etc. The camping area is to gain more and improoved facilities.
