Beautiful stocking filler gifts for a great cause!

Very quick post today, as I’ve been working all day and my brain is frazzled!

My good friend Andrea lives in central Portugal and she and her partner run a permaculture project, keep livestock and are doing a damn fine job of living self-sufficiently. Me, I like my home comforts, like hot and cold running water, electricity and a flushing loo, but the area they live in is beautiful and I am full of admiration for everything they have achieved, often under difficult circumstances.

Anyway, Andrea is in the process of planting a “windbreak” of trees to protect her land from a newly improved road and she needs 150 seedlings to start the work. A supporter of her project makes beautiful personalised pens and has offered to help by sending her one sapling for every pen sold to a Casalinho supporter (that’s the name of her smallholding). The pens are unique and gorgeous and at only £3.50 each they are definitely a great idea for Xmas presents … plus Andrea gets a tree for every one bought too!

To find out more about the windbreak, permaculture or their project visit Andrea’s website at www.casalinho.com – or you can go straight to the pens at either Etsy or Folksy. Make sure you mention Casalinho when you order and Andrea will get her trees!

Thank you 🙂
