    Description

    Hello my name is David live in a small town of Toledo in the center of the Iberian peninsula with the Sierra de Gredos to the north and the plains of La Mancha to the south, there is much diversity of plants and animals because it is a unique environment that combines climate mountains and plains in perspective, which is why this area has been inhabited since ancient times as demonstrated by the findings of numerous civilizations, from the megalithic era that remains a menhir recorded through the village vettones Celtic roots which preserved stone representations of bulls, Visigoths of a wall and tower remains, Romans, Arabs etc.

    The aim will be to promote this area in terms of tourism superadobe building homes with wood or stone of a sustainable and self-sufficient way by applying the principles of permaculture as well as learn the exploitable resources of the environment.

    I'm a technical architect and my idea is to combine technology with permaculture with the construction of the digester, hydraulic / aerial mills power generators, fuel cells and many other projects to make this place more self-sufficient.

    One of the main places of work (among others) will be a farm located within the town of Castle Bayuela, about 1000 square meters with running water where you can camp in the same town but surrounded by nature with spectacular views.

    Hola mi nombre es David vivo en un pueblo pequeño de Toledo en el centro de la peninsula iberica con la sierra de gredos al norte y la llanura manchega al sur,hay mucha diversidad de plantas y animales por tratarse de un entorno unico que conjuga clima de montaña y de llanura en su justa medida,por ese motivo esta zona ha estado habitada desde tiempos remotos como demuestran los hallazgos encontrados de numerosas civilizaciones,desde la epoca megalitica que se conserva un menhir grabado pasando por los vettones pueblo de raices celtas de los que conservan representaciones de toros en piedra,visigodos de los que se conserva una muralla y torre,romanos,arabes etc.
    El objetivo sera impulsar esta zona en cuanto a turismo construyendo casas con superadobe,madera o piedra de un modo sostenible y autosuficiente aplicando los principios de la permacultura asi como aprender los recursos aprovechables del entorno.

    Soy Arquitecto Técnico y mi idea es conjugar la tecnologia con la permacultura con la construción de biodigestor,molinos hidraulicos/aereos generadores de electricidad,pilas de combustible y muchos otros proyectos para hacer este lugar mas autosuficiente.

    Uno de los lugares de trabajo principales (entre otros) sera una finca situada dentro del casco urbano de Castillo de Bayuela, de unos 1000 metros cuadrados con agua corriente donde se podra acampar dentro del mismo pueblo pero rodeado de naturaleza y con unas vistas espectaculares.
