Our Week in Pictures: 27th October 2014

Our weekly round up of what volunteers have been working on at Casalinho, our developing permaculture project in central Portugal.


There has been so much going on this week that it’s been hard to choose the photos!

1) What a handsome boy!

2) Our last batch of corn drying on the driveway. We cut it before it cobs, for winter goat food.

3) Remember last week’s photo of Josh in his wetsuit and wellies? Well this is Charlie, his partner, demonstrating that wellies really are high fashion this season.

4) I got savaged by a guinea pig 🙁

5) Pippy and Charlie.

6) The goats are really enjoying the newly green fields after the dry grasses of summer.

7) Peas going in.

8) Making the most of the ramps in Casal da Lapa. It was obviously so unusual to see anyone using them that cars were stopping dead on the roundabout to stare.

9) The first Portuguese Convergência de Permacultura was held in Fundão. Great to meet old and new friends .

10) We’re back to glorious weather, but here’s someone who’s enjoying the damp.

11) Strimming the broom which has popped up all over the orchard area over the summer.

12) Aren’t these fabulous? And they’re self seeding all over the tyre terrace and the bees love them.
