The CO Project Farm is a unique, educative eco-tourism property nestled in the rolling hills of wine-and-olive country in central Portugal. Founded by United Nations Champion of the Earth Dr. Leyla Acaroglu, the CO Project initiative focuses on restoring an abandoned olive farm through sustainable design principles, transforming it into one of the world’s first and only ‘Brain Spas’.

The CO Project runs on-farm, interactive experiences for people interested in contemporary sustainable living, zero-waste cooking, organic small-scale farming practices, all of which help to promote a deeper understanding of systems change.

Our ‘Living-Learning Laboratory’ creates as a way of exploring natural systems, sustainable living practices, and hands-on experimentation, all designed to ignite creative thinking and offer people from every walk of life the opportunity to learn directly from nature. The CO Project Farm hosts dynamic minds from around the world, curating experiences that complement a multitude of different sustainability learning outcomes.
