Current work October 2015

At this moment (October 2015) Marko can be found building the most beautiful forest house. Marko and David (brother, friend and talented builder) are currently putting on walls and figuring out windows at a pace so that we can host volunteers as soon as possible in 2016.

I can be found supporting the building process and writing and publishing this website (with help from our friend Helder Luis) so that we can get out there and hopefully inspire people with our vision of a sustainable forestry and a more evolved way to relate to Nature, ourselves and each other.

If you are inspired by our work please get in touch, sign up for our newsletter and if you have any funds to spare consider supporting our plan to buy more monocultured land to regenerate into the abundant forest the land here wants to grow. If you don't have money to spare but would like to support us in another way we would also love to hear from you.

People have retreated to wild places for millennia to find inner peace and a greater perspective on life. Nature, in it’s simplicity and beauty, supports a profound relaxation in body, mind and soul.

Many people have asked us how they can help in the wake of the fires and all we have lost. We are very touched and grateful for these offers of support. Here are some ways you can help:

 
We have started building the second floor of the workshop!! This will be our last major build here and will provide a dormitory and meditation/workshop room which will increase our capacities for events and hosting people, especially outside of the summer months.
I am passionate about building with round wood because it simply makes so much sense.
It’s autumn again and the abundance is obvious. The forest and land is heaving with food and we know of no greater joy than getting out into the hills and foraging this freely given resource.
 

So we have some systems and facilities coming online this month - very exciting!!

Davi and Hazel have been working hard on the bathroom tiling, building glass brick walls and crafting mosaics. It looks beautiful!
