We are a family of 2 persons, me and my son. We have animals that include dogs, cats and miniature horses, besides chicken. We own an 8 .000 sq m orchard, near Vila Franca do Campo in a small parish called Ribeira das Tainhas.
We have a very nice ocean and a beautiful view over Vila Franca do Campo. Also a nice calm little beach two steps away.
We are slowly implementing a permacultural regenerative system in our garden. We are open to having natural building skilled people here for experiences and workshops.
Our daily life moves around the garden tasks and taking care of our animals. Since we are still implementing structural work, the tasks are more related to that process.
