Necessity is the mother of invention for Francois Cram and his off-grid showering solution. Low-tech, but high-satisfaction, the ‘Le Cram’ as it may become know to our grandchildren, is a delightful, low-impact solution that the inventor is happy to share with others wanting to re-use, re-purpose and re-evaluate their footprint on planet Earth.

The Power & Possibility Of Intentional Community With Jazz Mandala 

Listen again here

Jazz posted on the Pure Portugal Living The Good Life Facebook Group hoping to find people to help make the dream of forming a self sufficient community a reality. Here she talks to us about her dream community, which is based on the principles of meaningful connection, honouring the individual, living in harmony with the earth and being of service to others.

Jazz says – ‘Right now it’s just the two of us on the land and it’s very, very early days. In the long term we’d like to build a little community of 6-8 people, living together on the land and forming something akin to a family. If you’re looking for home, this could be the place for you, but we’re also more than open to short-term visits as well.’
