The land

Posted by Heloisa Dinsmore over 9 years ago

Description of the land and objectives.

Our land is 9 hectares (~ 22 acres) in size in the Mantiqueira Mountains, in the South of Minas Gerais, (Southeastern region of Brazil), where I would like to create a small garden of eden. The land is at 900m elevation and it has different microclimates, stream, spring, hills, pasture, forest and marsh. The climate is subtropical with wet summers and dry winters. Due to altitude, in the winter there’s fog in early morning and frost. It is situated near a small village where I hope I can attract interested people who have a desire to learn how to live according to the ethics of permaculture. I dream of establishing a living example of how permaculture can be a helpful solution to the problems we face. I’d like it to become a learning facility where people can visit, live, work, and learn.

This is where my heart is, it's also what I want to create for my children and future generations. In doing this I definitely wish to include my children 100% of the time. Actually that is impossible as of now because of the mandatory schooling situation in Brazil, which is why I'd hope to include a free school (recognized by the Brazilian government) in which the curriculum would revolve around permaculture.

I wish to connect with like-minded people from around the globe but specially in my area, to explore possible ways in which we can help each other to reach the goals we have in common.

Dwarakanath Jnaneswar Ekkirala : Love the school idea. I run a home school myself here in india for children of friends and family. There is no mandatory schooling program here, thankfully. And all the children (now they are 14 to 18 yrs of age - 7 in total) are all PDC grads!
