Our Path

Mount of Oaks (Monte dos Carvalhos) began in 2006 and in the first years, hundreds of people passed through, staying from a few days to a few years as pilgrims, painters, builders, gardeners, and dreamers.


From its beginning, Mount of Oaks has been a stage for playing with various notions of sharing of resources, knowledge, spiritual experiences; a time to seek solace in nature, and a platform for people to gather and talk. We have been working over the years to practice the ideals of living in community and from the land, interdependent with neighbours, and dedicated to the principles of permaculture.
