This topic can trigger fear and judgement and especially cause panic for commercial beekeepers who’s livelihood could be at jeopardy from hives loses due to disease. However recent research provides powerful insights as to the case for not treating diseases such as varroa.     IBRA (International Bee Research Association) shares: “This is always a dilemma beekeepers face when deciding whether or how to treat varroa.

Celebrating Bees: Happy International Women’s Day

My relationship to bees is a mixed bag of rational awe at what they do and their role in nature, and irrational fear about getting stung. I say irrational not because it’s such a wild notion to think that I might get stung, but because even if I did, it would not be half as bad as my fear makes it out to be (note: I am lucky enough not to be allergic). Focusing on my awe, I thought I ...Read more

Grief after the WildFires

Dealing with Personal and Collective Grief… Life after the WildFires “The village is the place you go to be seen. It is this being seen for what we most deeply value that helps repair the “break in belonging” and lets us plant the seeds of hope and renewal”. Sobonfu Many traditional indigenous cultures hold that the sharing of grief is essential for the connectedness of a community. Grieving is one of the ways we express love for what we’ve lost, ...Read more

Bees and Bee Keeping Course

The bees have arrived at Quinta dos Covões! I didn’t know they were here until I heard a knock at the door and opened it to find Harald there holding out a bee keeper’s suit for me and saying “Do you want to come and watch me open the hives up?”. So off we went, suited up, to release the bees! I know very little about bees other than they’re entirely fascinating and I really want them on the quinta and ...Read more

Rocket Stove

Nice and comfy, nested on the heated sofa-bench… The house is warm, the water hot, and the stove gently crackling as it finishes hits burn for the day. Temperature meant to go down to 1°C tonight. Right now it’s 4.7°C out there, but 20.2°C in here. Our rocket stove is now in its second week of its second season. Only 2 blow backs so far ; once after I rushed putting a big log in shortly after starting it, the ...Read more

Eating Invisible Flowers: the Delicious Mystery of FIGS

© Keith Irwin Their skins are golden or leaf green, delicate cream with a pale pink blush, amber, mauve, royal purple shading into eau de nil, or inky violet tinged with midnight. There are dozens of varieties in Portugal, and their names echo like the words of a song – surely a love song in praise of the beloved’s beauties: Olho de Perdiz, Douro, Pingo de Mel, Paraíso and Princesa. Every year, millions of people around the world watch the ...Read more

Sustainable Forests for Portugal

We – a group of Portuguese and foreigners who believe there has to be a better way for the environment AND the people – have set up this page because we believe that NOW would be the perfect opportunity to replant the devastated forests of Portugal with the indigenous forest of sweet chestnut and oak. But local people need an income, so chances are we’ll see more pine and eucalyptus, This is the real root of the problem – massive ...Read more

Beber de uma Nuvem

15 de agosto de 2015. A Vida em Portugal – autora: Dra. Jude Irwin Hoje, enquanto fazia a minha corrida matinal e me movimentava calmamente através da névoa fria que se espalhava pela encosta arborizada abaixo, eis que me deparo com um mistério. Os raios de sol já começavam a queimar, criando manchas de azul vívido por cima de mim. Porém… Eu conseguia ouvir um ruído: era a inconfundível e bem-recebida água neste violento verão de seca e de incêndios ...Read more

Depois do Fogo. Uma Caminhada pela Floresta (Muito) Negra

15 de agosto de 2015 – A Vida em Portugal – Autora: Dra. Jude Irwin Ao lerem isto, alguns de vós já devem estar “habituados” a isso aqui em Portugal. De certo que já presenciaram incêndios florestais e leram sobre eles, e certamente também já experienciaram a amargura de ouvir o som das sirenes, o fumo a deflagrar e os desvios rodoviários tantas vezes que, mais um incêndio, é apenas “só mais um”. Mas para mim e para o Keith, ...Read more

Drinking from a Cloud

August 17, 2015. Life in Portugal by Jude Irwin As I took my morning run today, jogging rather ponderously through the cool mist that billows down the wooded hills, I encountered a mystery. The sun had started to burn through, creating patches of vivid blue above me. And yet…I could hear a sound – unmistakable and welcome in this gusty summer of drought and forest fire: It was raining! Or was it? If it was, why wasn’t I getting wet? ...Read more

After the Fire. A Walk in the (Very) Black Forest

Some of you reading this are “old hands” here in Portugal. You’ve seen forest fires and read about them, and put up with the wailing sirens, smoke and road diversions so long that another one is just ho-hum. But for Keith and me, the burning around Figueiró dos Vinhos during the first week of August 2015 was our first experience of a rapidly-spreading and potentially catastrophic conflagration. It was both shocking and fascinating. One week after the last of 600+ ...Read more

When the Forest Burns

In this world of “bucket lists” prioritising things to see and do before we die, there are a few dramatic scenes one never wishes to see. One is a forest fire practically on your doorstep. It is August in Portugal – prime holiday time, but also the danger zenith of the forest fire season. Everything is tinder dry. While the firefighters of Rocky, California slog on against a blaze engulfing 90 square miles, other smaller but no less frightening Mediterranean ...Read more
