  • Description

    We are Anna & Rufus.
    We are a family of four from Bristol. We left UK, traveling to Portugal looking for work away.
    Anna grew up in a tight nit community in rural Hungary, caring for farm livestock, cooking big pots of food on the fire outside with singing and story telling as much a part of her heritage as her passion for plant medicine. With skills learnt from her Grandmother, she has an innate talent for growing vegetables, herbs, flowers and trees and knows how to best harvest, store, preserve and prepare them to nourish and heal the body.
    I grew up in a remote nook of South Wales with a close connection to nature due to my parents knowledge and love of organic food, low impact, sustainable living. Food was grown and water collected, we built a timber frame house and an outdoor compost toilet.
    I am Rudolph Steiner educated, where the focus is on the development of body, mind and soul as one.
    Merlin our 6 year old has been attending a Steiner School and we have been splitting the care of our 3 year old daughter Zahra and working for a live in Steiner care facility. Specialising in teaching children who are physically disabled and have varying mental disabilities.
    Since having our family we have enjoyed growing our own herbs, vegetables and fruits and making natural remedies and oils.
    We feel ready to welcome some change in our life and start a new and exciting adventure, so we have bought A van and are ready to travel to Portugal!
    We are looking to expand our knowledge and exchange our skills in organic gardening, eco building projects and animal care and well pretty much anything practical.
    Anna and I have always dreamed of a self sufficient sustainable way of life.
    We are very much looking forward getting involved with new projects and people.
