I’ve learned than beyond these titles, I want to learn how to do everything.
I’m from the Algarve (south Portugal), I was born in Lisbon, and lived until I was 17 in Faro. In 2002 I went to Lisbon, by myself, to study in the big city. After 5 years of theoretical and artistic learning, in the wonderful world of a student, I find a big disillusion: reality! Then I begin to discover Permaculture world through my beloved partner Maurício, that introduces me a different way of living, that starts to question everytinh that I’ve learned util I was 22! Since that time that I walk to find a meaning, a reconstruction of the real scenario I'm living in.
In 2008 we had the opportunity to start the implementation of a Permaculture Project, named O FOJO, that goes in a way to be a Permaculture and Art forApprenticeship and Demonstration Site.
In August 2009 I make my PDC in Sintra. This was an important thing for me, it clarified a lot of doubts and preconceptions I had, living me with this notion:
Nature is perfect and we are part of it.
At this moment I’m in Transition to a more practical and responsible, less theoretical and ideal way of life.
