    The main goal is to be testing a simple way of living, self-sufficient, away enough from big cities, in nature.

    The project include the minimum/basic need of provide water, power, food, heat in a sustainable off-grid manner.

    Water: harvesting rain water for shower, cooking, watering gardens. Main house use a pond harvesting rain after in all fashion way, my grandfather leave it ready, still available. A new wood shed, made of recycled pallets with a 1000 liters pond, on the foundation. And a couple of ponds spread over the land.

    Power: Solar power in early stage provide light, pump power and small tools power.

    Food: first year of the project, just creating the soil. As in permaculture the tree early years the main goal is the regeneration of the soil, only a little greenhouse is able to provide very little amount of fresh food. Dreaming of a future food forest.
