    Description

    We are a family of two, my son and me, and our three little fellas our big Dog and two cats. We've been nomads traveling here and there in the lately years, exploring the world connecting with people and different and new ways of lifestyles.

    I get the call of Mother Earth, and I wanted to settle and root myself to feel the connection with the Pachamama. After been looking for long in Portugal, country that I loved so much, in many different ways...and after doing my Permaculture Design Course in Aljezur, I felt the need to be close to my family and friends, and build a nice Permaculture project in the needed Andalusia and I finally decided to get back to my roots, and invest my time, energy and love in my born place, so we just get this plot of land in beautiful La Palma del Condado, Andalusia.

    At the moment, We are in the basic beginning, with a small house with a kitchen and a toilet, but we have the essential to offer, water, electricity (solar panel) and a caravan.
    You are welcome to come and stay also in your van. :)

    The land is around 7000m2 it has 2 pozos and small solar panel, we have 40 fruit trees, and vine yards all around, there is a small arroyo crossing by the land which gives a lot green and potential to plant around in the future.

    The idea is to create a Permaculture Design Project, and slowly slowly develop all itself.
    We would like to start by creating a compost toilet and outside shower, water system and natural pool and improv the solar system. Planting all around and creating a new ecosystem in the land.

    There is a lot to do and would be nice to share this nice project with beautiful people, who can add and improve here and there.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Huelva province, is an area of various landscapes including marshlands rich in bird species, sandy beaches, and lush inner forests. A really Natural Reserve and a place to disconnect and connect with Nature.

    To the south we have Doñana Park Reserva Natural, The park is an area of marshes, shallow streams, and sand dunes in Las Marismas, the delta where the Guadalquivir River flows into the Atlantic Ocean, It was established as a nature reserve in 1969 when the World Wildlife Fund, The park features a great variety of ecosystems and shelters wildlife, including thousands of European and African migratory birds, fallow deer, Spanish red deer, wild boars, European badgers, Egyptian mongooses, and endangered species such as the Spanish imperial eagle and the Iberian lynx.
    Also you can enjoy a chill day at the beautiful beaches around.

    Further north, the earth is orange and rivers red, colored by natural copper metals excavated from giant mines. In mines of RioTinto, create a surreal, almost lunar landscape. The removal of layer upon layer of soil and rock, in the search for iron ore, copper, silver and a host of other mineral ores, has tinted this part of the world in hues of dusty pink, brown, yellow, red and grey. So great is the scale of operations, that the depression created resembles a man-made crater that measures several kilometres across. From the edge of the 'crater', a giant space opens up before you.

    We loved to be connected with Nature, and sometimes we going to the beach and all beautiful places around for a trip and enjoy this magical place.

    I like to start my day early in the morning practice with Meditation visualizing the day and a Yoga practice. And slowly checking the needs for the land in the day.
