a-simpler-life-el-pocito-header-our-journey-here

We arrived here in 2009.  Nine years after setting out from the UK to look for land.  Prior to that we were living in North Yorkshire.  The process of becoming aware that we wanted a more simpler way of life is documented by several publications, all available here as downloads.  The first was published in 1994, entitled HOW A GARDEN CHANGED MY LIFE
