Volunteer at Quinta da Bazágueda
Eco-building opportunity – Hello, people interested in natural construction. Quinta da Bazágueda is back on hosting volunteers from March 2021 onwards in the beautiful natural Reserve of Serra da Malcata, in the centre-east of Portugal.
At the moment we are specifically focused on restoring/building with the natural and local materials available: dry stone, clay, river sand and wood from our land in a very traditional way.
We also have to build a new electric fence for the animals.
Although this is the main work we need help with, the farm continues to go on its daily needs, so you will have a chance to see our animals grazing happily around, to get to know how we milk them, make cheese and so on…
More information: a real farm life experience!
If you are interested in a more sustainable lifestyle, surrounded by Nature, wilderness and a very authentic, original landscape, this is for you! Among all the farm and day-to-day activities, we are now especially needing help to build an electric fence to keep our goats, sheep and cows safe. Other daily animal care, gardening and foresting tasks will be done so you can participate in your free time if you feel like it.
We are looking for people with:
- Strong interest in Nature and Heritage Breeds of animals;
- A vigorous capacity of adaptation;
- Respect for Nature and behaving accordingly;
- Welcome Families with children as we also have 2 sons.
There will be also plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, bath in the river, see wildlife, share and get to know our way of living on a real farm. Contact us to know more! Kind regards everyone
