My name is Jamie, I am starting a construction project on a beautiful piece of land in the forest. I am looking for those with either experience or interest in natural construction, particularly round house construction. We will be principally using the materials at hand because the land is a 30 minute walk away from the nearest road. The roundhouse is to be a meeting place and especially a place to reconnect with the earth, cleanse the body and soul, and heal. It's a dream i have, i would love to make it happen! Those helping with the construction project will need tents and camping gear.
My current living space is a simple setup with an emphasis in incorporating native and wild plants in the garden as well as medicinal plants. I also have goats and chickens for milk, eggs and meat. Located in a cozy valley, my house is very simple and has a wood stove, solar panel. It was constructed principally with surrounding materials including clay and wood. 15 minutes near the village of Fazenda das Lajes, a foot path through the forest, beautiful and isolated.
A great place for getting closer to earth and to yourself.

Visitors would learn about wild plant foraging and natural alimentation/plant medicine and identifying plants. Also about natural building and natural/elemental living and gardening. Musical exchanges, musicians very welcome! A great place for experimentation also.
I need help with setting up temporary living space, cutting trees, moving logs, clearing land, cooking with fire, setting up campsite, moving materials, construction. Experience with chainsaw a plus.
Visitors will be camping on site, food will be provided.
