my name is Dominic, I am 47 years, mother of two sons (17/23).
My main interest is organic gardening, handy crafts (Crochet), woodworking (as an empowering experience for women) alternative living projects (like wagon sites, low impact buildings, caravans and living-in vans and also conventional housing) and the art of living in harmony with yourself, your close ones and not so close ones.
I am living in the valley since 2005 and since 2002 in Portugal, thereby creating the experience of living a low impact, nature connected and more free life whilst also raising my sons in these ways.
Knowing by experience that living out in the sticks is not an easy choice but an empowering one I’d love to share with other women (and male ?) about my live style and help and inspire my sisters in finding the courage to make a step into the unknown wild life.
I’ve done plenty of things in my life, to name a few that have had an impact on who I am today: I studied special and curativ education and I worked for 10 years with adults with special needs and for about one year in an integrative kindergarten, I worked on restoration of antique furniture, in an animal shelter and I also worked for 5 years in a garden and landscape design company, where I discovered my passion for gardening and landscaping
From 2007-2014 I was part of a geodesic dome company and we were building and renting out domes. I also have been working on several Boom Festivals, with various projects, one of the most creative ones being part of the designing and setting up of the sacred fire area in 2006 and 2008.
For the last 5 years I worked with my partner Alan on several wood house building project see gallery woodhallas and in June 2016 we facilitated an alternative natural building workshop in Terra Alta, we build a reciprocal roof structure.
I am also part of “project woodhalla”. You can read more about us in the Workshops & Projects.
