We are a small, start-up project and are currently raising funds to support continued improvements to our space – a beautiful, restored Lagar (olive press building). Any donation, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated and will allow Folha Verde to thrive and flourish. As a community, we dedicate a large amount of our time, skills and energy to this project, but we do need external support for major building projects. No matter how big or small, every contribution is very much appreciated.

You can make a donation directly by bank transfer to Associacao de Apprendizagem Natural (FV):
