  • Descripción


    This is a 75 acres off grid project, inspired by permaculture design, located in Portugal in South West Alentejo, between the beautiful natural park of Costa Vincentine and the Monchique Mountains.
    We are at the early stages of building and revitalizing the land through soil, water and plant management.
    We are aiming for food self sufficiency with natural growing practices based on vegan/vegetarian principles and we are putting together a viable economical structure.

    Coming with friendly dogs should be fine. Two big dogs are living here : Luuz and Ancho. Luuz is nearly 4 and has been in contat with a few other dogs without any problem, once she has been introduced to them; Ancho just turned 1, and does not know many other dogs than luuz. But I suppose he would be fine too to run and play with a new 4 legged friend! I would not try to come with cats or other pets...
