Lynn Mylou of ‘A Vida Fausto’ For The Pure Portugal Podcast

Listen again here

We spoke to Lynn Mylou at ‘A vida Fausto’, with added input from dog Fausto and his friends.

Lynn’s story is truly inspiring. She lost much of her home in last year’s forest fires, yet remains an incredible stand and resource for the natural life, having made her own fascinating transition and transformation toward the ‘good life’ – or the ‘luxury life’, as ‘a vida fausto’ translates from Portuguese – from life in the fast lane.

What’s Growing in YOUR Garden? Deborah Richmond on Rewilding at Quinta Das Abelhas

Listen again here

Carl spoke to Deborah Richmond from the Quinta Das Abelhas, home of an exciting and inspiring new rewilding project, who happened to be in Devon, UK for the call.  Set in the mountains of Central Portugal, Quinta Das Abelahs’ rewilding scheme is dedicated as a sanctuary to the honey bee and ecosystem restoration.  Each swarming season they will grow the number of hives, with a particular emphasis on wild bees and log hives in the trees, creating a safe haven for them to thrive. Deborah also heads Pure Portugal’s Resources Directory, which we’ll cover in more detail episode three of this podcast, so please stay subscribed.
