About Maria Lua

A few years ago I did a PDC at Coed Hills in Wales that changed my life! Not doing anything by halves I packed up shop and left for Portugal, this where my ancestors came from and my calling took me there, to live off the grid, study Permaculture and create a self sufficient self sustaining forest garden.

3 years down the line I have completed my PDC with Geoff Lawton, am building my own home and creating the food garden of my dreams!However; It is only me on nearly 2 hectares of land and it is proving to be hard and not as enjoyable as it should be when realising ones' dream. This is why I am now asking for others of like mind to come and join me on this venture.

I aim to become an example to all those around me.To lead by example. I intend to create a small Education Centre where others can come and learn how to apply Permaculture ethics in their lives. I am interested in nutrition and health and have this lovely fantasy of making organic food baskets to sell at markets and shops as well as Home made cosmetics!

I also love music dance and outdoor festivals. I DJ as a hobby and am also looking forward to creating a space to hold gatherings, workshops and recreational facilities. I have all the equipment to do this I just need the 'right team'.

I am really excited in going 'global' and taking part in this amazing movement! I know this is the way forward! Now I sit and wait for the right ones to come along so we can enjoy a healthy happy life together!

Live with Passion
