From one metal box to another.

We begun journeying Europe and beyond in 2014, after graduating from art college and ditching a London flat for a home-on-wheels. Most of our time has been spent doing work-exchange projects, having rich experiences in different cultures, communities, natural building and self-sufficient living, exchanging our help for food and living space, and getting to know and to learn from some truly wondrous people. We're trying to discover ways of living that aren't dominated by money and capitalism, where value is put upon gift and exchange to deepen inter-personal connection and equality. 

Two of us became three when we adopted the puppy of a stray dog in the mountains of Portugal, Jella the explorer!

We have found ourselves repeatedly returning to Portugal, to the warmth of the people and the sunshine, and in 2017 landed on a large, wild, brambley plot of land with a ruin. Here we've been a little more stationary, digesting what we've learned and putting some of the skills into practice. Using mostly reclaimed materials, we've converted a container into a little cabin and built a compost loo on stilts. A lot of hours battling brambles, and 200+ trees planted. Following permaculture principles we hope to turn a hot, south-facing slope into a water-retentive landscape using swales, rainwater collection, and by encouraging reforestation with native and food-forest species.

Three of us became four, Suri the street dog... and then five, Ali the forest feral... and then seven, Aldous & Fridha the wildcats.

Our aim is to practice a sustainable way of being, 
to explore and experience, to create, help and experiment. Over time to develop a space for wildlife, for sharing, learning, yoga, dancing, playing, laughing, love and silliness etc etc etc... And to gain a greater connection with communities and the natural world. We hope our journey inspires others on theirs, as others have inspired us on ours.

“What strikes me is the fact that in our society, art has become something which is related only to objects and not to individuals, or to life. That art is something which is specialised or which is done by experts who are artists. But couldn't everyone's life become a work of art? Why should the lamp or the house be an art object, but not our life?” - Michel Foucault
