Smallholding in Spain

Hi, we are gardeners living in the Sierra de Aracena, Andalucia, and after many years of searching have just bought 2.5 hectares of land to create a forest garden.  The culmination of a long-held dream, to live more simply, healthily, and sustainably.

And the reason for telling you all this is because like gardeners everywhere we want to swap ideas/ expertise/ plants and seeds with likeminded souls.  Even encourage them to come and visit.  By linking what happens here with your newsletter/ website.  Either through a feature, regular column, or just posting our blog address.  Whatever you think is appropriate.

Right now we have a basic blogsite for friends and readers of our books, to let them know what weŕe up to.  Soon that will be joined by another, dedicated to the garden and our efforts at self-sufficiency.

Look forward to hearing from you.

  1. hi there,
    myself and my partner , apmela, are currently living in granada, but are in the process of looking to rent a place in the country where we can try to live”the good life” like tom and barbara. i am trying to make contact with fellow down sizers in the area in an effort to learn a few things and offer my support to any future projects. i am finding it quite difficult to find the perfect place for us, so any help or direction you have would be delightfull.

    best of luck and happy xmas,
    jon and pam
