Volunteer with us

Do you want to experience a completely different way of traveling? Do you want to slow down for a while, dive deeply in into a new lifestyle and culture and make friends with open minded people? Learn about a completely different side of how life can be?

Come, live and volunteer with our family, here on Quinta Cheia on beautiful Graciosa!

Could you imagine to be our helping hand with a variety of projects, like working in the garden, making repairs on the boat and house, running errands, cleaning, babysitting and feeding the animals, keeping your eyes autonomously open for how to make this place and the work flow better? We are also interested in your suggestions and the knowledge and special skills you are bringing with you and you will have the chance to learn a lot practically about permaculture, sustainable living, natural lifestyle, alternative and healthy cooking and eating, personal development, crafting, biology, grounded embodied spirituality, community… and meet a bunch of like minded people here on our island.
