  • Description

    Description

    Hi! My name is Tânia and I currently live in Bragança, a city located in the north of Portugal, in the region of Trás-os-montes and 20 km from Spain.
    5 years ago I was a teacher and lived in Porto, but tired of the confusion of the city and the education system, I moved to Bragança, where I dedicate myself to Plastic Arts, music and Agriculture.
    I have a space even within the city where I usually organize courses on Syntropic Agriculture and I have been creating my little Agroforestry. The space has about one Hectar and I recently built my house and my Atelier, where I currently live. I have been building my “nest” little by little, which I want to be open and communal. A space for meeting and sharing, friendship and joy.
    The city is small and I will be able to walk with you sometimes. I can also make my bike available for them to move around at will. There are beautiful places to visit.

    I have three dogs: Mel, Godushi and Pepa and also 5 chickens. it's an animation! :D

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you come to help me, I will be able to teach you what you need to do at the moment. If we are plastering the walls using traditional and ecological techniques, I will be able to teach the technique. If we work at Agrofloresta, I will be able to teach how to create an Agroforestry and how Syntropic Agriculture works.

    If available, I will also be able to show you around the city, as well as interesting places around.
