We welcome any volunteers with all skill sets, but especially people looking to live a more natural, true and conscious life. You can stay from a week at a time to much longer as part of our community.
We ask for 5hrs of your day, Mon – Fri and have weekends off to explore Portugal, unless there is an event being hosted that weekend, in which case you will be given 2 days off during the week instead. All food and accommodation is included, but you do have to find your own way to Project Roots. We are aiming to grow most of our own food, in an organic and sustainable way and our kitchens are mostly vegan, apart from eggs and honey we plan to produce ourselves.
We currently can only take volunteers that are willing to share a bunk room with other volunteers or have their own campervan or tent. We are planning on creating more individual/private volunteer spaces very soon.
We are very interested in volunteers who have permaculture, gardening, bee-keeping, painting and decorating, plumbing, electrical, office/admin, marketing, and photographic/video skills, but we welcome anyone willing to help the project flourish in any way they can.
Every morning Mon – Fri is yoga and every Friday evening we hold a group growth activity. This can be anything from fire or glass walking, to breath-work of Shamanic journeying. You can choose to join these activities or not.
If you are interested in volunteering please will out our contact form here, with as many details as possible about your skills and interests and also the rough dates you are available.
You can reach us my train from Lisbon or Porto to Coimbra and then bus from there to Serta. Depending on the day, we may be able to pick you up from Serta if prearranged, if not then it’s a 20min taxi ride or bus ride out to us from there.

Postcodes in rural Portugal don’t always get you to where you want to be, GPS Coordinates in Google Maps do though (good old Google Maps)! Please, do not just turn up, prior notice/agreement is essential as we can only take 10 volunteers at a time.
