Fire Days in Torrão
8th of January 2023 &
5th of February 2023

In our two FIRE DAYS we explore the methods of PRIMITIVE (8.1.23) and URBAN(5.2.23) fire making methods!

Primitive fire building skills are those skills focusing on starting fires without matches, lighters, or an excess of lighter fluid. They can be the difference between life and death in any sort of unexpected situation where the need to start a fire arises, but the ordinary supplies are not on hand, or even fail.

Matches are great, but if you get them even a bit damp, perhaps as you pull a co-adventurer out after they fall through the ice, they won’t even sputter.

There are more than 20 ways of PRIMITIVE FIRE MAKING METHODS.

In our PRIMITIVE FIRE DAY we explore some of them, like the bow drill, inuit fire making method, bamboo saw or the Ötzi fire.

On our urban fire making day we learn how to make fire with things that surround our daily life. A glass bottle, chewing gum paper with a battery or even an empty cellphone battery.

On both days you will learn the essentials of how to make fire without any equipment, which tinder sources you can use and how to set up and maintain a save fire even in wet conditions.

Weihnachten steht vor der Tür und du möchtest ein originelles Geschenk?

Verschenke eine Olivenbaumpatenschaft an deine Lieben!

Was genau ist eine Baumpaten-schaft?

Wir sind ein kleines Familienunternehmen welches in Portugal ein Land besitzt mit 350 Olivenbäumen. Unser ältester Baum ist ca. 800 Jahre alt! Wir fühlen uns als Gäste auf diesem Land, denn unsere Bäume haben bereits viel mehr gesehen wie wir und werden auch uns überleben :-). Daher pflegen und beernten wir unsere Bäume rein natürlich und manuell ohne den Einsatz von großen Maschinen oder künstlichen Dünger.
Das Resultat ist ein handverlesenes, natürliches Olivenöl.

Wir bieten dir die Chance, Olivenöl direkt von uns (Erzeuger) zu beziehen. Ohne Umwege und Zwischenhändler direkt zu dir nach Hause.

Die Baumpatenschaft kostet €130.- und enthält 6l Olivenöl von unseren Bäumen und eine Urkunde mit einem Foto “deines Baumes”. Bei der Bestellung kannst du uns einen Namen für deinen Baum mitteilen und diese Urkunde deinen Lieben schenken bzw. unter den Weihnachtsbaum legen.
Deine Patenschaft ist genau für ein Jahr gültig und verlängert sich nicht automatisch. Kein Abo, keine Kündigung notwendig!

Im März/April 2023 verschicken wir das Olivenöl der diesjährigen Ernte nach Österreich wo es weiter verteilt wird bzw. direkt zu dir nach Hause geliefert wird (derzeit beliefern wir Ö und D).

Hast du Interesse an diesem einmaligen und originellem Weihnachtsgeschenk?

Hier kannst du deine Olivenbaum-patenschaft bestellen!
