Life in a biodynamic community in Ecuador

walter2Biodynamic & Permacuture Farming ~ Walter’s Blog

Welcome to a glimpse into my life, homesteading in the mountains of Ecuador. You will find a mix of articles about Biodynamics and permaculture, living simply on the land in community and integrating into the local culture. Now and then I will describe my own spiritual journey, opening to the creative power of the divine feminine. Walter was born in the jungles of Borneo of Dutch parents back in 1949.  As a child I lived in Malaysia, England and New Zealand.  It was here, as an eighteen-year-old that I fell in love with the land and decided to become a Biodynamic farmer. A while later, I met a young American women, was enamored and followed her to the States, where I spent most of my adult life. Over the years, we raised a family and owned and operated various farms, producing Biodynamic cheese and bread, as well as milk.  My love was dairy cows and all they entailed. My passion was to steward the earth and raise good healthy food to the best of my ability. In addition it was always important that I help  non-farmers to connect to the land where their food was raised. Now we live in a beautiful sacred valley in the mountains of Ecuador. With my wife Susan and partners Leisha, and Cristian, we hope to homestead this farm, become self sufficient and share our joy with others. We offer day-long and short-term stays, an intern program and workshops. We are also looking for folks who would enjoy being partners, requiring investment.
