  • Description


    Our project is located in the village of Barão de São João in Lagos, Algarve, Portugal to promote livelihoods based on permaculture and the arts.
    This project intends to have a positive impact, according to Permaculture ethics: caring for the land, caring for people and fair sharing. Art is also cultivated as an individual and cultural expression of the community.

    In this space we can find:
    - Bread with Soul, organic and artisan bakery
    - the Local Shop, with products of artisans and local producers
    - cafe where healthy meals (vegetarian, vegan and raw) are cooked and interesting books are available for consultation
    - The Art Temple, for music, dance and other arts, and wellness practices (meditation, yoga, therapies)
    - the Permaculture Garden, where ancient varieties of wheet and organic vegetables are growing to feed the bakery and the Kantina. We also aim to develop a CSA & CSB (community supported agriculture and bakery)

    We need help only for the garden and general maintenance.
