    Beschreibung

    I am Kathleen, 32 years old. I bought a 2 hectares land in the Natural Parc of Douro International (north-est of Portugal), two years ago. I am starting an agricultural project with medicinal and aromatic plants, fruits trees and bees. For now, I am living in a little wooden and stone house that I made with friends. The land has fresh drinking water from the spring and there is a little river that flows part of the year. There is a lot of wild life: eagles, vultures, lezards, frogs, trees and flowers... and hudge granit rocks. Escalhao, the closest village, is 3 kms away.
    I am also interrested in massage, yoga and natural medicine. It is a long term project to combine these practices to make a living out of it.

    Sou a Kathleen. Comprei uma terra de 4 hectares no Parque Natural do Douro International, ha dois anos. Estou a comecar um projeto agricola com plantas aromaticas e medicinais, arvores de fruta e abelhas. Para ja vivo numa casita de madeira e pedra que fiz com amigos. O terreno tem uma nascente de agua potavel e um ribeiro. Ha muita vida salvagem: aguias, abutres, lagartos, rãs, arvores, flores...e enormes rochas de granito. A aldeia mais perta fica a 3km.
    Eu tenho muito interesse em massages, yoga e medicinas naturais. É um projecto de longo prazo de juntar essas practicas com a populaçâo local, e de tirar rendimento disso.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    I am doing an experimental farm. I mix traditional knowledge from the area with new (re)discovering about sustainable farming, inspired by permaculture and others . My companion João is a biologist, working on an 800 ha natural park that belongs to a local association. It is the occasion to meet people from Portugal interrested in nature preservation. I have many nice friends in the small village of Escalhão, that the traveller can meet if she/he wants to.

    Estou a fazer uma quinta experimental que mistura tecnicas antigas de agricultura e novas descobertas sobre agricultura regenerativa. Estou inspirada pelas ideas de permacultura entre otras. O meu companhero João trabalha como biologo numa assoçação local que tem uma grande reserva naturale de 800 hectares. Pode ser a ocasião de conhecer gente de Portugal interessados em conservação da natureza. Tenho muitos amigos na aldeia de Escalhão que o viajante pode encontrar se quiser.

    The land was abandoned for many years before I got there, so the biggest work for now is to prepare it before planting. Depending on what the workawy likes to do, there is also a lot of ecoconstruction work. This summer I will be working on cob house construction. I also welcome ideas to help me organize the project.

    O terreno estava abandonado há muitos anos. O maior trabalho é de o preparar para poder plantar. Se o viajante gosta, ha tambem muito trabalho de ecoconstrucão. Este veraõ vou estar a fazer construção de terra e palha. Eu sempre gosto de ouvir diferentes ideas para planear o projecto.

    I went everyone to feel free and confortable on the land. I take care of people, and have moments to listen to how everyone feels.
    The land around is semi wild and beautiful. There are great walks to do. The village of Escalhão is made with old stones ( houses and streets) and have a church from the 11th century. There is a pacific atmosphere. I am close from the river Douro and the river Agueda, that make the border with Spain. In the region they mainly grow olive and almond trees and vines.

    Quero que cada um se sinta livre e à vontade na minha terra. Cuido das pessoas e tenho momentos para escutar como cada um se sente.
    As terras à volta são meio selvagens e bonitas. Podem fazer-se caminhadas. A aldeia de Escalhão é feita de pedras de granito (casas e ruas), e tem uma ingreja do século 11. Ha um ambiente pacifico. Estou perto do rio Douro e do rio Agueda que fazem fronteira com Espanha. A região tem sobretudo oliveiras, amendoeiras e vinhas.
