This is a splendid example of organic vegetable garden. The owner doctor Barrie Oldham is gardening organically here, in this red tough Portugese soil, following the valuable permaculture path.
Some parts of the garden are still a working project like integrating fish into permaculture green-house gardening – hope to see it working already while visiting next time.
Thank you doctor Barrie for permission to share your garden with the readers of this blog!
Finding Casa Nirvana for the first time is kind of miracle. Frankly, I don’t know how I got here, must have been some help involved not only from friendly lady working in the cafeteria in Moncarapacho. Making sure about the right direction, was the most important challenge, then following the intuition was the second one. The closer I was, the narrower the road was, at the end just one car can pass.
Backyard garden with two Bougainvilleas, Brugmansia and the softest Agave attenuata.
In Algarve it rarely rains, there is average rainfall from min. 1 to max. 12 mm/monthly.
