About Me


Making a non profitable organization for ecological matters.


I´m a woman who has lived several lifes in one, always looing for my place in the world, finding answers to antike questions, with a great love for nature, and a passion for handicrafts, as a way to travel with a lot of time.
I am vegetarian for more than 30 years, try to keep open minded, very respectful for other, and at this moment I find myself with more than 50 years, a child grown up and studying far away, a boy of 12 going to secondary school, and me, trying to make my dream come true. Developing a natural place, to learn about nature, and how to live in this planet in a more harmonious way. dealig with normal problems of everybody. Now is a new time , I found my place in the world because I am building it where I grew up. My ideal place includes people like me, who cant seat back and see her life go by, people who think that there is a lot to do in this life, for good. there is a lot to see and a lot to learn and a lot to teach. The world is the most interesting place to be !


Nature and Freedom!
