When Steve and I first arrived in Portugal with two kids and two dogs several years ago. We didn’t speak any Portuguese and didn’t know a soul. After a tremendous uphill struggle we bought a piece of land and embarked on planning and building our place in the sun. We grow organically (actually bio dynamically) as much of our food as we can manage having run an organic food distribution service in Britain. Back in the UK Steve was involved in many private and civil construction projects. Over the years in Portugal he has had lots of dealings with local Camaras (councils) regarding planning and construction, found some excellent English speaking architects and lawyers and has lots of reliable and professional contacts in the construction industry.
We live a fairly “green” lifestyle and often come across the word “alternative” to label what we do. However, we think “shades of green” is a more realistic approach to environmental awareness – no one’s perfect and no one wants to ruin the planet so we all try to improve our lifestyles with this in mind. Some people want to live in a tee pee or a yurt others want to live in a castle. It’s up to all of us to find environmentally sound solutions to this challenge so that we can all be happy with where we live and when it’s our time to leave the stage those that follow can feel proud to inherit our achievements.
