Permaculturing in Portugal

One family's attempts to live in a more planet-friendly way

Stumbling across a bit of quinta history

While idly Googling around, as you do (or at least as I do), for interesting snippets of online information about the Serra do Açor, I somehow stumbled on a photograph of Quinta do Vale as it was 5 years ago on April 17 2004, snapped during a weekend hike by a member of the Associação para a Defesa do Vale do Bestança on their way along the track towards the path up to Pai das Donas.

The quinta in April 2004

Vegetables growing on the fruit terraces and lots of equipment in the house.

It underlines how fortunate we’ve been to find somewhere that hasn’t been badly neglected for a number of years (though I’m guessing it probably also means a fair few chemical residues in the soil).
