Hello everyone, I’m starting Living Nature ecocomunity in a 10h land close to Aljezur.
The aim for the ecocomunity project is to create a eco safe heaven for artists and artisans where people can live sustainably, create their art/produce using local materials and locally grown produce, and organise workshops/events/traders market in the land.
The land is divided in two sections of 5h. One section bordering the road, is destined for short term participants, workshops, market, parking and community gardens/forest gardens and transitory light/movable structures. The other section is destined for longer term participants, water management, dense forest gardens, animals and permanent essential infrastructure.
At the current state of the project we already have water/irrigation systems sorted also with nice water reservoir, few private and common areas(kitchen), plant nursery, a small garden, and few animals. We do focus to finishing properly the water reservoir, nursery, planting, fences and private/communal buildings for the first residents. Later on in the spring, we plan on starting the first workshops/events/market.
