Aldeia, family collective

Aldeia, family collective

Aldeia is an open space where each individual can express him or herself in his or her own unique way

We are a group of friends and families attempting to live together, and in harmony with nature. We believe in having a relationship with the land we live on.

We believe in community, in the sharing of resources, skills and ideas. Each member of our community has a skill to teach and a perspective to share, but we more than anything else, seek to be students; students of nature, of our common history, and of community living.
