Sítio das Figueiras (Figueiras Farm)
Hello guys :)
About our place...
Our place is a former agroindustrial farm. In the 90s it was about milk, chicken and natural humus production. From 2005 to 2015, no activity has been developed here.
From 2015, we are putting into practice our currently project :) Now, our place is a Permaculture and Arts Exchange Centre. We've been developing courses and exchange experiences with students, volunteers, visitors and researchers from all the world.
We have a SAF (Agroforestry System) that have been implanted in our first permaculture course, in Aprl, 2017, as well as a Rain Water Capture System wich we use to irrigate our plants. These systems need care and attention, as well as other maintenance activities to prepare our place do Arts and Theater courses and to keep it always working and with good vibes!
Check out some pictures! :)
We are brother and sister developing this project :)
