  • Description


    We are a new Forest Regeneration Park project.
    What is a Forest Regeneration Park?
    It's a project dedicated to restore human's perstine role in nature, one of mutual growth, benefit, partnership and support.
    We want to plant and seed as nature likes it: mixed, raw, wild, real.
    We want to eat from nature without killing its spirit, we want to feed and protect it in return. We want to store water on the land, in lakes and dams and swales. To nurish the roots and retrieve the ground water. We want to cure with seeds: heavy landslides caused to the slope by previously opening a dirt road with heavy machines.
    We have 16 hectares of beautiful hilly land with a small river, close to the beaches of North west Algarve.

    * Guys - please notice that "We" are currently two couples living on the land and more 1-2 volunteers. We are not a community and building a community is not our intention. We want to work together and have a good time and also a lot of free space for each to enjoy nature in her own way.
