  • Description

    Description

    In 2017, I renovated an old farm house in the Algarve, Portugal. Since then, I cleaned up the land, planted various fruit trees (such as almond, walnut, mango, cherry, apple, pear and peach) in addition to the already existing citrus, olive fig and other trees. Moreover, a veggie garden has been initiated.
    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 is occasionally used for guest rooms to tourists.
