As well as the projects of the association, we have project members – projects in these valleys whose work is aligned with our regenerative objectives.

Quinta do Vale is an off-grid permaculture demonstration and education project featuring water retention landscaping, food forest, natural building and ecosanitation. The project holds courses in permaculture design, natural building and low-impact living and welcomes volunteers throughout the summer.
In the middle of Portugal you can find a little magical valley where you can volunteer to help the beekeeper who lives here. This little patch of magical valley starts at the river and covers a hill with a watermill ruin, an animal shed, lots of trees, bushes, wild plants and brambles. And bees.

In search of who we are we found the Awakened Life Project, we fell in love with our own evolution and potential, we left our jobs, we found that we were pregnant, we decided to move from the city for the country side and we came to live in a small village in Central Portugal, called Esculca… We are creating our new life every day, evermore inspired by our own potential…
