Freixo do Meio is the project of a man that became a sustainable reality for many beings. It is a big organic farm and organism, integrating with the sourrounding Montado, a typical ecosystem from Alentejo, Portugal. The presence of human beings here wants to be a peaceful cooperation which welcome and arouse biodiversity.

In this visual summery, Alfredo, manager of this ecosystem, starts explaining his philosophy which lays as a basis on his way of farming. In this open view, a circle of people works in the puzzle of nature, in a balance which allows production without exploitation of resources (agroecology).

In the video we see people and their various skills, Cooperation, ecofunctionality, managing the risks, as well as a biodinamic approach. The production of the farm flows to Alfredos farm shop in Lisbon, to allow a honest economy which grant the workers to be paid.

Alternative projects are included: beekeeping, permaculture, medicinal garden, and a horse-riding school. In the end it´s shown how Sorraias horses (indigenous ancient breed) are respected and kept wild in their ecosystem. This video is an example of how man can act in a sensitive way, contributing with local production and environment protection.
