Alexandre Pereira Álvarez aka Pere BNOMAD is a Senior Technician in Management and Organization of Natural and Landscape Resources. Nature lover and (self-taught) passionate about the land. He has worked for a long time in a nursery and as a gardener and realized that there was something more.
Seeing the factors that threatened us such as the lack of natural resources, desertification and the loss of arable space, he began to study in a methodical and systematic way the bases of Permaculture. He met a group of friends with whom he shared values and thoughts on how to live in harmony with nature. From that interaction was born “Ecolectivo” of which he is a co-founder. An experimental life project, with the potential to “contaminate” and empower people towards self-sufficiency and collective intelligence.
