Location: Ferraria de São João, Penela

Extension: +-120Ha

Ferraria de São João, the village that right after the great fires of 2017, decided in an assembly to replace the eucalyptus trees around the village with more resistant and/or fire-retardant trees.

In 2020, we were commissioned with a project that meets the needs and aspirations of the population, creating a structuring "master plan" to help materialize a village with life and a future. That's how it was, and after many months and many face-to-face and online meetings, the project ends, and the action begins!

It was a pleasure to work with the population and define together the vision and how to get there, and we must thank the Ferraria de São João Residents Association, the Penela City Council, and all the public and private entities involved in the project.
