  • Description

    Description

    I recently renovated an old farm house in the Algarve, Portugal. Now it's time to take care of the land that needs to be cleaned up and be planted with fruit trees and veggies. There are already plenty of orange trees, figues, cork oaks, olive trees.
    I am a human rights lawyer but interested in permaculture. The idea of my 2,4 hectars farm is to develop it for a project with other people who are eager to share a life in connection to the land and its traditions.
    The farm has a fantastic sea view on the Algarve's south coast and is also close to the Costa Vicentina (20 min drive to Aljezur).
    One of the two renovated houses can also be used for guest rooms to tourists in the future.
