  • Descrição


    We are a small community in Portugal close to the border of Spain in the Algarve. We recently started our project of the reforestation of a beautiful piece of land. It’s a honor to do this because it’s the land of Agostinho‘s Grand-grandparents that was burned 10 years ago by a fire.
    Our goal is to make this land as a living space again.
    So we started in 2020 with a greenhouse to grow plants because we definitely need a lot of them. After some time and a break because our little daughter was born our garden is growing more and more. We have now several gardens, a school of trees, and a seed bank that we look after.
    Another important part of our daily life is the work with canas. It’s an amazing material that is growing in our land. We developed certain techniques how to use the bamboo like material and are able to build almost everything out of it. Agostinho is becoming a master and is very happy to share his knowledge with you.
    Cooking is also an important part of our day and the kitchen is for us a place to meet and enjoy time together.
    We would be happy to invite you to our peaceful oasis in the valley of canas and turn this space together with you into a jungle full of plants, living beings and water ponds. We would like to spend here a fulfilling time with you, exchange ideas and knowledge, create new things and turn this space into a place that is in coexistence with the nature, with the people and culture around us and our ideas of a sustainable and responsible treatment of the environment that we are living in.
