Liesbeth Vdk 1,530 learning to apply permaculture in a Mediterranean climate
In the process of creating a food forest in Central Portugal with my partner.
Living in rather primitive conditions: electricity from a solar powered generator, no municipal water. We get water in big jerrycans from the spring in the next village, cook with gas, have a dry toilet for our humanure.. Humble beginnings coupled with preparing a healthy space for the next generation. And always being short on mulch. We work on a terraced plot of agricultural land (building a house is not allowed) of 1852 square metres (one quarter of an acre). Main challenges at the moment : surrounding eucalyptus plantations posing a fire risk,, pesticide drift from vineyard up the hill, rainwater harvesting , and improving the water holding capacity of the soil.
