Permaculturing in Portugal

One family's attempts to live in a more planet-friendly way


This page details ways in which you can participate in the work of the quinta financially, and by doing so, perform a vitally important and very much appreciated enabling role.

Sponsor one of our projects

We are making opportunities available to help the quinta continue its recovery from the fires and to move into the next phase of its development as an ecoliteracy and solutions-oriented education centre.

Below is a selection of short, medium and longer-term projects in which you can get involved in a specific and targeted way. The projects will change regularly (we hope!) as projects are completed and we add more. Most are specific to the quinta, but as we go forward, some will involve the quinta’s work in the wider community.

Click/tap on any of the projects for more details and the opportunity to donate.

You can either donate directly through PayPal or “offline”. If you chose the “offline” option, I will email you with details for direct payment.

Sponsors of individual projects can receive regular updates on their chosen project as we move forward and also hear about progress with other projects. If you’d like to be kept informed, please sign up to the sponsors email list at the bottom of the page.


If you would like to just donate – either with a one-off donation or on a regular basis – without a focus on a specific project, then this is also possible and hugely appreciated.

Click/tap DONATE below. As with the specific projects above, you can either donate directly through PayPal or “offline”.

If you’d like to donate to the entire community rather than just Quinta do Vale, the community post-fire crowdfunding campaign is still running. Go here –
