WHAT OUR RETREAT RESIDENTS SAY
We have creative residents from all sorts of professional fields, joining us from many different corners of the world united by their passion for positive creative. Designers, sociologists, jewellers, writers, engineers, entrepreneurs, communicators, bankers, illustrators, therapists, even dentists have come to work, regenerate, and take in a piece of inspiration from the CO Project Farm.
A GREAT PLACE TO DISCONNECT
"The CO Project was a beautiful paradise filled with everything I needed to disconnect with the craziness of life and connect with friendly, like-minded people who are passionate about systems change."
- Josh Drummond, Vancouver, Canada
RECHARGE YOUR CREATIVITY
"My experience at the CO Project gave me the chance to relax and recharge my creativity. My favorite moments were spent in the stunning nature that surrounds the farm as well as sharing conversations and delicious meals with like-minded people."
- Sofia Ratzinger
FOCUSED WORK WITH RELAXATION ON THE SIDE
"I came to the farm to write parts of my thesis. It was such a good environment to concentrate and write. The food was amazing and in the breaks there was always the possibility to pat the animals, jump in the pool or swim in the river nearby. Also it's worth checking out the town of Tomar which is a real beauty as is the whole area. Thanks to everyone at the farm for that great experience. I will be back!"
- Florian Schickl, Berlin, Germany
MORE THAN JUST A PLACE TO WORK
"The Co Project farm was a more than just a calm and great place to work, it was also a great place for reflection, a time -out and for battery recharge. After a long working day, we would spend the day walking around on the farm, getting vegetables from the garden, help cook, sip wine, have long amazing dinners and chats around the fire. I am also very impressed with how the farm worked with a non-waste policy and the strive towards functioning as circular as possible, changing habits, and appreciating the nature.
The Creative Residency was a chance to get away from the everydaylife «todo’s» and a chance to focus solemnly on our project. Not only did we manage to get to start up a project that needed focus, patience and time, but we also had the chance to get to know each other really well. I highly doubt that we would be able to get that far with similar results anywhere else.
Apart from having a highly productive 5 days, The Creative Residency helped me uncover my love for Portuguese organic wine, Chard salad, and home grown zucchini. Creative Residency also enable us to set the Vision, Frame and Business plan of our project in fantastic inspiring surroundings.
My favourite thing about the Co Project farm was maybe the incredible night sky full of stars, silence and calmness".

NEW WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES
“After five days of learning, creativity, and play on the CO Project Farm, I feel like someone has dusted off my brain and opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities.”
