  • Description


    Hello beautiful beings
    It’s Been one year and half that I’m joined to an big family that 10 years ago bought, together a land to make one dream come true: live in harmony with nature and with each other, creating a little paradise to raise up our children. All these years we have been creating spaces - by now almost each family has built their house to live, and we even built a "homeschooling" school, four years ago where we make activities with the children on a daily basis.
    The place where we live together is a very special place: it is big and wild, has an incredibly beautiful river, pure air and water, and is surrounded by only more wild nature. We are totally off-the-grid: our water comes from a nearby spring, we use only renewable energies as a source of electricity, and we have compost toilets.

    So we are an eco village where together we bought 40ha of land in the Beira Alta area of Portugal.
    It is a very interesting project that energies flow from the individual towards the collective!!

    So I arrived last year to one part of this eco village where I have 1.3hectares to explore and create edible gardeners, agroflorest, food forest, eco buildings, etc, always with the principals of permaculture. I finish one living yurt to live between I project one house...
    it’s the beginning, for now I’m projecting a COB house to be the bath house, and an summer kitchen with wood oven for bread and pizza party’s. I already start to plant some trees, agroflorest , and a small garden to grow food witch this spring I want to make bigger...

    In this beautiful land I have a dome geodesic which it’s my workshop with a big Solar system where can I work. Can be also some accommodation. And I have my old autocaravan where can sleep one couple.
