Dragon’s place
A place where everyone is welcome.
 
And specially all those who wish to learn more about the new Celtic perspective and put into practice the harmonious integration of landscape and people, which provides for food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. 
In fact, it is an empirical experiment and update of the ideas of Permaculture set by Bill Mollison:
 
 
Food:  We work on our quinta (4 hectares own + 4 hectares use), together with local traditional farmers and other biological farmers in the area, learning from each other to provide healthy food not only for ourselves, but also for others.
Our quinta is in a beautiful natural area in the centre of Portugal. It is an old Celtic place, consisting of large areas of woodland and a terraced vineyard, where you can enjoy a natural lifestyle. Living on the quinta is also an adventure and we are very supportive/ almost self-sufficient. For almost 200 years, generations o... more inside

We are a family of 4 (children are 7 and 3 years old) that live a simple life in the mountains of the Portuguese national park of Peneda Geres. We are trying to live a natural lifestyle based on Permaculture principles. We are 100% off-grid, we have running water and solar system for energy. We live in Yurts, we close our cycles (ex: dry compost toilet, water treatment systems, soup making, composting and vegetable garden).
At the moment we are expanding our garden, building a wooden house, taking care of our horses and the most important, taking care of our children and our selves.

On the edge of a beautiful lake in Southern Portugal is a steeply wooded valley,where I have an on-going woodland conservation project. Solar panels supply my energy needs and pump water from the lake,as part of the aim to create a sustainable lifestyle. I intend eventually to offer natural retreat Yurt holidays and craft workshops but at the moment need help with the following;
The organic vegetable and herb gardens: I follow traditional organic methods rather than permaculture,( although I incorporate some principles.) My vegetables grow in raised beds, in which I am aiming to improve the heavy clay soil with compost and manure, and am experimenting with a combination of mulches and drip irrigation.
Woodland management: making and maintaining paths and steps, especially in the wake of damage done by wild boar.
A major tree planting project is underway; we are preparing a hectare of land by clearing invasive shrubs and hope to plant 100s of native trees this winter, now that... more inside
