Querença Sausage Festival, 2015

The 2015 Querença Chorizo Festival will take place on Sunday, 18th January.

It is a festival in honour of St. Luis (the protector of animals).

Traditionally the families in inland Algarve raised a pig to sustain themselves through the year and asked St. Luis to keep it in good health. To thank the saint they offer their best homemade chorizo.

The festival includes a procession, musical entertainment and, of course, lots of homemade chorizo!

This event will include a procession, tastings of grilled sausages and lots of music.

Swim for shoes

Swim for Shoes. 2014/15 the annual event to swim or paddle in the Atlantic Ocean has, this year, so far raised over 1000 Euros for new shoes for children in care.  

Many congratulations and thanks to all those who participated.
This year's events had, for the first time, the support of Events Organiser - Portugal4U www.portugal4U.pt and the Albufeira Surf Clube - who added greatly to the excitement by arriving by sea.
The weather was perfect for both of the events, one on Christmas day, and the second on New Year's day,  blue skies and high temperatures, and the sea calm.

The money will be used to buy shoes during the year for the teenagers.  It will be divided between  A Gaivota, Santa Casa in Albufeira and Espaço Amigos in Armação de Pêra.  Each child at school needs a pair of trainers and plimsolls. 


Certificates were awarded to all those who got wet and everyone enjoyed a "Hot Chocolate " in the Holiday Inn Algarve bar afterwards.

A big thank you to everyone who took part, those who watched, the media for helping with the publicity, Dave Sheldrake (http://davesheldrakephotography.com/) and Diogo Correia https://www.facebook.com/diogo10  for photographing the two events  and to everyone who donated so generously.

Journeying towards sustainability - Next Workshop - 10th January, 2015

Educational Meltdown and Alternative Schools 

Time: 15:00-17:00 
Language: English 
Overview: Since the first schools started, education has been evolving and we are now faced with a myriad of sometimes confusing choices on how to educate our children. This talk looks at where the present conventional system may fail us, and the alternative education schools cropping up that include environmental awareness and sustainability in their teaching policy. Come and meet new and likeminded people in a learning and sharing atmosphere. 

Despite existing a suggested donation for attending of 10 Euros this is not restrictive if you cannot afford paying that; just come anyway; your presence is what counts! And maybe as an exchange you can help us for 2h in our farm or other. The collected donations will support upcoming events and 10% will proceed to the Peta Birch Community Association (a registered Charity that helps children and animals in the Algarve).
