Hi Maria

Talking about your deers and boars - do you know anything about whether you can hunt in the region?

I'm not a gung ho cowboy, just a practitioner of the Ray Mears approach ie. Sustainably foraging from what nature can provide, responsibly.

we don't usually use 'real names' on the forum - that's why we have 'usernames' ;)

Also, for all those in Maella and Spain, I found this link on the net which I thought may be helpful:

PTP Forums • View topic - Buying land in Maella

Hi. I have also just bought a Finca near Maella, using Finca casa aragon!
We're looking to use it as a holiday home until its habitable and our children are at a sensible stage in their schooling, then we will move there full time, hopefully.
Would your builder friend be able to recommend somewhere that we can hire a medium sized digger from as my other half is in the building trade but has no equipment like that!
We are also looking to buy a cheap second hand car, I know that can be a long shot in Spain, but do you know of any classified ads online that I can check out?
Hopefully we will all meet up in the town square! :)

Try this coches/ es some cheap motors on there
Also you can check the car history fines finance etc etc and its available free on itunes and android

Hey guys!

For any one interested in Permaculture there's a new free course from Geoff Lawton, the right hand man of Bill Mollison - the creator of Permaculture.

Permaculture being the use of earth's natural systems for Permanent Culture - opposed to agriculture's unsustainable Monoculture, which is heavily dependant on fossil fuels for energy and fertiliser. Not only unsustainable, but costing the farmer A LOT of money.

Geoff Lawton

..............................................

When you leave an agricultural mono-crop field alone, like wheat or anything where only one type of plant is present, nature turns it back into, if not a forest, a bio diversely rich eco system. Rich in plant and animal life. Closed. Independent.
No work required. No machines, no fertisliser, and several times more productive.

How? Because a cross section reveals a mono crop's yield as only one level. Mono-culture.

A forest on the other hand has a multi layered level yield. Everything working symbiotically, providing each for each others needs. Like the difference between people living together but being isolated from each other, compared with an actual thriving community.

Nature's natural design.

Then a clever guy called Bill Mollison came along and figured out the ecological design of a forest and how to redesign a forest to incorporate all the medicinal and dietary needs of humans into it. With little to no work, depending how you want to do it. Thereby rendering redundant the need for machines and fertilisers, harnessing nature's natural cycles to supply our needs.

Clever little chap that.

No food transportation costs, no packaging pollution issues, all organic, free range etc etc. Doesn't matter if there's a food crisis, banking crisis, energy crisis - you and your family will always have food on your table.
These guys have so much experience with replicating this in every climate they can make it happen in any environment. Desert, urban, temperate, snow etc. etc.

I highly recommend taking a look. After all, it's free.

Hi

We've been looking for a property to buy around Maella, and we're flying out at the weekend to have a look around. We're more familiar with Andalucia, as we have friends down that way, but we're looking at buying a finca with an original masia we can make habitable, and live as much of a self-sufficient life as we can, hopefully getting our bills down to just a few euro's a week.

At this stage, we're simply wanting some good advice regarding areas to avoid for any reason (flooding/crime/development), or anything you feel we need to be made aware of in the area that a newcomer to the area and this site may not be aware of.

Many thanks,

Al

Hi

We've been looking for a property to buy in Aragon, particularly around Maella & Caspe, and we're flying out at the weekend to have a look around. We're more familiar with Andalucia, as we have friends down that way, but we're looking at buying a finca with an original masia we can make habitable, and live as much of a self-sufficient life as we can, hopefully getting our bills down to just a few euro's a week.

At this stage, we're simply wanting some good advice regarding areas to avoid for any reason (flooding/crime/development), or anything you feel we need to be made aware of in the area that a newcomer to the area and this site may not be aware of. I will endeavour to browse the site for information in the meantime.

Many thanks,

Al
