Don’t make the same mistakes I made!
How exciting, today two of my favourite YouTube channels released new videos with the Freedom Farm in them!
Here are some of the things we’ve been up to this Spring…
These caterpillars who eventually become moths are spreading into Norther Spain and France from the south, killing off coniferous forests with alarming speed.
Starting tomorrow we will be hosting a community stall where you can come and join in for the princely sum of €1. We can help you out with your Spanish and even if you only have a few items to sell, by working together we might just get your items sold!
This week I decided to make my own starter culture for yoghurt from chickpeas.
Abby Pulham, a former climate change political advisor and water engineer who now lives in Spain with her family on a beautiful traditional finca (farm) where she is pursuing her goals of homesteading, permaculture and regenerative agriculture in the form of food forestry talks to us about water, climate change
and living off-grid.
This week we all squeezed into our car, with the trailer filled to the brim with shovels, pick axes, and pre-made sandwiches and headed out to El Gozo in Caspe to offer our assistance to a sister permaculture project in need of some helping hands.
It is easy to get carried away describing the beauty of the Farm and the valley; the views across to the mountains, the olive and almond groves, dotted with the ruins of fincas from time gone by. What makes this place really special however, is how, amongst the spectacular landscape, Max and Nic are working to make their own place from scratch. We have really appreciated their down to earth and relaxed nature, and their thoughtfulness in sharing their space and introducing us to their way of life.
