Shared Experiences

As a community we are stronger through our shared experiences. We share the joy and pleasure of living with nature and everybeing, Our events are unique spaces where we can experiment with what we do and how we connect to each other and everybeing. We are offering the different types of events (For a full list of all events, please see our events page.)

Working on the Quinta

Working on the Quinta and on the land offers us a unique experience to grow as a community and to connect to our home.

We organise WorkWeeks around the year, coinciding with key times at the Land Project, such as harvest times.

WorkWeeks are a great way to connect to others and enjoy being on the land together as a community of around 10 people.

If you join us, you will be spending time with fellow “Quinters”, with space for deep conversations, intimate sharing, fun, exuberance, and perhaps a bit of bewilderment.

Up coming workweeks are:

Sep 18
18 September - 26 September
Oct 02
2 October - 10 October
Dec 04
4 December - 12 December

In addition to WorkWeeks, we occasionally host specific Project WorkWeeks. These are dedicated to larger projects, such as restoring a building or putting up structures on the land. Check our events page for more details. 

Volunteer

Outside of WorkWeeks you are invited to come and volunteer on the land. Normally there are between 2 and 5 people on the land.

As a volunteer you are invited to join them in their daily tasks and help with the running of the farm. There is no organised programme of activities, which gives you more flexibility to explore the area by yourself or with your fellow Quinters. 

Contact us to discuss volunteering opportunities after attending a Welcome Meeting.

Theme Weeks

We host “themed” gatherings. The difference to WorkWeeks is that theme weeks are dedicated toward sWe also host themed gatherings. These allow us to focus our attention on specific activities and questions of importance.

As in other weeks, you will complete 4 hours of work each day on the Quinta.

Outside of these hours, time is dedicated to a particular topic, including:

  • local food harvesting and preparation;
  • creative workshops like writing or crafts;
  • eoqueer research and practice;
  • ecofemminism;
  • body nature connections;
  • and more…

Online and Community Events

We host regular hybrid and online events to allow Quinters who are at the Quinta and those who are away to connect. These events allow people not currently part of the community to join us from anywhere in the world. Among these events are:

  • The Queer Book Club

  • Seasonal Ceremonies
