Sementes Vivas is an organic & biodynamic seed company founded in 2015 and is based in Idanha-a-Nova, central Portugal, near the Spanish border. Nested in the beautiful landscape of the Beira Baixa, our farm integrates seeds and vegetable production. Our 25 hectares are farmed in accordance with Biodynamic principles, aspiring to be an ecological and economic model of sustainability. Our team consists of 30 passionate, experienced people with backgrounds in organic and biodynamic agriculture, seed production, plant breeding, marketing and sales. We operate our own seed production site in addition to external multiplier fields. Our company specializes in locally adapted seed for the Mediterranean climate. Quality control, storage, packaging and distribution of the seeds are happening on site.

We are welcoming interns/volunteers for the coming season: for the period from APRIL – OCTOBER (1-7 months) and for the period from JULY – OCTOBER 2019 (1-4 months).

The preferred length of stay is one month. Our volunteers live on the farm and participate in the following activities: sowing, planting, weeding, harvesting, seed processing, irrigation and taking care of small farm animals and celebrations.
