Hey you! I'm Cat, a homesteader, mother, gardener, maker of things, student of plants, keeper of chickens, writer, knitter and failed artist. Me, my lover Sam and our squish J live in the remote countryside of Portugal.

We strive to grow our own food, make our own medicine and build our own shelter. We value what's local and in season and believe in the strength of community and trade. To us, these represent acts of resistance and social empowerment against a corporate world that controls from what to eat to what we wear. They may be small steps, but make a difference in our local level.

And because I love writing and taking pictures, in this little corner I will journal our day-to-day, homesteading adventures, nourishing food experiences, magic - in overall, just a bunch of thoughts weaved with images. Yay!

Thank you so much for being here ♥
