Who are we?
We came to live here in Monsanto, Portugal seven years ago. With a passion for eco-construction and sustainability we decided to leave our old lives behind. We consider ourselves realists more than extremists. Sustainability needs to include a human level, which means finances, speed of construction, and how realistic it is to build something with just a few people. The best design needs to consider all solutions available. Adhering strictly to ideology can sometimes run the risk of being unrealistic and inhumane.
We believe that knowledge is essential to experience true freedom. We are on a constant search for knowledge, and if we can share a little bit of what we have learned, hopefully we can make a difference in this world. We are not certified architects, engineers, or landscape designers, we are just regular people who are developing their own smallholding and have learned a thing or two on this incredible journey. We are all about win-win situations, so if we can share what passion, experience and knowledge we have, while at the same time contributing to our family’s needs, we can create a positive cycle.
We relish the opportunity to connect with other people who share our same passions.
