Quinta das Abelhas

Quinta das Abelhas (“farm of bees”) is a project dedicated to studying an agroforestry system in the Alentejo in Portugal. Marc Leiber, a student of Ernst Götsch, implements syntropic farming techniques at Quinta das Abelhas to restore degraded soil, provide a home for pollinating insects, and re-establish the water cycle to create a climate-resilient agroforest. This project aims to create a place for all generations, especially young people who have moved to urban areas, to observe the benefits of syntropic farming and agroforestry.
