    Beschreibung

    My name is Matthieu. I have been a freelance photographer for 20 years, and an active National Geographic photographer for the last 10 years. My wife (she is German, we met in Indonesia) and I recently bought a beautiful land near Palmela, overlooking a valley called Vale dos Barris. During confinement, we improved the land with a connection to our 2 springs, permaculture vegetable garden, water tank made from an old wash bassin etc. We have olive and pomegranate trees and lots of bamboos. We have planted hundreds of trees so far, and plan to plant more this winter! The land is right next to where we live.

    We now need some work on landscaping and also building a small wooden house, some work with palettes etc.
    Driver license would be a great add-on!

    More about the PROJECT:
    We have been implementing a vast forest garden on the lower part of land that comprises of 14 terraces and a couple of pond system. We have planted around 80 fruits trees, and thousands of cuttings of endemic species, vines etc. we have a pond system as well. Lands needs constant small work as far as weeding, mulch, landscaping etc. We have a permaculture specialist, Joaquim, who helped us direct the project. This experience is a great opportunity to learn about food forest and permaculture.

    More about the FAMILY:
    We have 2 boys, Timo (10) and iluka (15). Both our kids are born on the road (one in Hong Kong, the other in Istanbul) and speak German, French, English and Portuguese. Our boys are home-schooled. We are a truly multicultural family, love sharing our travels (we have been to most countries in Asia) and we have been living since 3 years inside the Arrabida Nature Park, just 35mn south of Lisbon.
