Within the hive

Below is the core team, however this project is only possible because of many people not listed here.  

Liz Granfort

Liz is the dreaming pollinator and guides the vision of Quinta Das Abelhas whether on the land or from a far. Her work as a business coach, dancer and costume maker is a constant weave of creativity and clarity to the unfolding journey. 

Deborah Richmond

The honey bees were the inspiration for Deborah co-initiating this project with Phil. Alongside running Quinta Das Abelhas, Deborah offers systemic coaching to support the restoration of a thriving human species and the natural world. 

Phil Gould

Phil makes the physical happen at Quinta Das Abelhas and supports the bees, trees, soil and water through land regeneration. He produces and installs log hives so the honey bee can return to natural behaviours. 

Angharad Barlow

A background in theatre, film, television special effects and costume design, Angharad is creativity. Her environmental work and art raises awareness of the need to protect nature. Her latest art installation 'Bee Temple' is currently on tour.

Richard William George, Contemporary School of Yoga
Richard is the founder of a yoga school that is affiliated with Quinta Das Abelhas. Their collective work links Portugal with England and focuses on fostering creative potential and human resilience.
