About Me


Love, learn and create.


I am on the way to leave my office life behind and learn as much as I can from nature, about natural building, permaculture, natural farming etc. so that one day in the near future my dream of living in a permaculture community and co-creating a place for people to open, learn, heal and love will come true.


"Live simply so that others can simply live." (Mahatma Gandhi)

“The greatest change we need to make is from consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens. If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone." (Bill Mollison, founder of Permaculture)

"All the world's problems can be solved in a garden." (Bill Mollison)

“Sitting at our back doorsteps, all we need to live a good life lies about us. Sun, wind, people, buildings, stones, sea, birds and plants surround us. Cooperation with all these things brings harmony, opposition to them brings disaster and chaos.” (Bill Mollison)
