    Hey ! 🌱
    I'm looking for help for the fall and winter months.
    If you seek to be close to nature and practice permacolture and building in a peaceful place with good vibes, contact me :)

    My vision is to embrace nature and create a space for healing and joy.
    A space that embraces creativity, imagination, and wonder.
    Food forest, swimming pond, medicinal herbs garden, treatments, and workshop spaces are part of my plan.
    In the future, I would like to host workshops, events, and guests here.



    My name is Lee, I came 3 years ago to Portugal.
    I like to explore and learn about a lot of things; herbalism, mysticism, shamanism, cultures (especially ancient and tribal), gardening and landscaping, building and DIY, crystals and minerals, and more! :)
    I've learned graphic design for a few years but I like more traditional art like painting, carving, and sculpturing. I also practice aromatherapy and herbalism.
    I like to play music and jam together :)
