Enjoy unique moments and experience the daily life of a farm by taking part in activities such as tilling the land, tending to the vegetable gardens and orchards, looking after livestock and composting. You can also observe and learn about the processes for making bread and jam.

Located in the Parish of Olivais, Olivais Teaching Farm is a public space that has been managed by Lisbon Municipality, under the auspices of the city’s Department for the Environment, Green Spaces, Climate and Energy.

Since its inauguration on 16 April 1996, the farm has been a community learning environment home to both educational and recreational activities. The space, which covers around 2 hectares, meets the ever-increasing public demand for contact with nature and the rural life.
