Hi, me and my partner have been learning about permeculture, we have been to India, Greece and Tenerife to see some farms in action.
We currently live in Catalonia (we are english) we are looking for a place to start a food forest where it is cheaper and were considering Portugal. Although we were hoping the canaries would be an option aswell because we love tropical fruits. So if anyone has suggestions on that too?
Anyway a big must for me is access to clean fresh drinking water on the land and land that already has some fruit, nut & olive trees established.
We also prefer to be in a warmer sunny spot.
Somewhere quiet and private yet close enough to a community or village.
Also another advantage would be need to somewhere that actually has public transport as I'm not that keen on relying on a vechile but I understand that might not be possible.
We are thinking to do some work exchange in Portugal to experience the perma scene there.
But any suggestions in the meantime most welcome

Hola holaaaa family!

we are also a group of 5 heading to coimbra castelo area by the end of feb searching for a land. we've been hunting some properties and arranging some visits but definetely everyone of us think is better to head to the area and talk with locals. for what I've been reading lately there is a big community already on this are of people following values like sustainability and moving forward to apply permaculture. we would be really drawn to meet some people and get to stay for a few days with you or near your area to get to see your projects in the land or get some contacts to help us moving forward

We'll be traveling with a motorhome and another vehicle.

thanks
