Come join us for an amazing Permaculture Design Certificate Course in Central Portugal, on a stunning site committed to sustainability, featuring countless examples of sustainable living strategies and techniques. Owned and run by Wendy Howard, eco-builder, gardener, biologist, ecologist, activist and pioneer in the region.

We are extremely excited to partner with Wendy, who has staged an incredible bounce back following the tragic fires that devastated the region in 2017. This really is a superb opportunity to be immersed in an off-grid permaculture smallholding/ homesteading.

NOTE – WE ARE ALSO OFFERING A POST-PDC PRACTICAL LED BY WENDY! A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR HANDS-ON IMPLEMENTATION FOLLOWING THE DESIGN PROCESS

About the site:

Quinta do Vale is part way up a mountain in the Serra do Açor, part of Portugal’s principal mountain range. It’s about 75km (45 miles) inland by road from the university city of Coimbra, Portugal’s 12th century capital, and 100km (62 miles) inland from the Atlantic ocean.

Its 2-ish hectares (5 acres) of steeply-terraced land lie between 360-420m (1,200-1,400 feet) above sea level. The land is predominantly north-facing, forming a rough S-shape around a northeast-running river valley. It’s sheltered by mountain ridges to the south and west, and to a lesser extent to the north. Slopes vary between 30-45°. The major biome type is warm temperate with climate classified as US Zone 9 and Köppen-Geiger borderline Csa/Csb (warm to hot summer Mediterranean). Annual rainfall averages just over 1000mm.

Summary: 

The Permaculture Design Course (PDC) is a 72-hour internationally recognised training engaging participants' head, heart and hands to discover the principles and techniques of Permaculture Design.

At Tribewanted Monestevole in Umbria, Italy, we bring learning about Permaculture into its right context. You could say it is our up-market PDC. By joining the course you will not only become an accredited Permaculture Designer, but you'll be able to put the theories into practice on the 40 acres of available permaculture gardens, orchards, with the animals and in the local kitchen, all while enjoying the Italian hospitality and delicious organic and locally sourced foods.

The 2020 course will be our third Permaculture Design Course held at Monestevole and we are looking forward to building on the design insights and land restoration techniques applied in previous years.

Umbria is known as the green heart of Italy, with lush, sustainably managed landscapes and woodlands.

Summary: 

Due to popular demand, Azula and Surplus Permaculture Design are excited to invite you to join us for an extended- 21 day- Permaculture Design Course (PDC) on a stunning 15 hectare Permaculture project on the South West cost of Portugal.

An average PDC runs for 10-14 days, packing in all the 72 hours of theory into the shortest timescale possible. We want to do things differently and after feedback from PDC graduates they want it differently too – so we have created a 21 day PDC. This will be a unique learning experience giving you all the knowledge and skills of a PDC but with the added benefit of being able to deepen that knowledge – to learn by doing – to put theory into practice – get your hands in the earth and connect with the land from day one!

You are also welcome to join us on our music jams, open air movie nights, Yoga/Akro, Capoeira and pizza nights that we organize.

We are looking forward to have you :)

We return to Sunseed for our 9th course! We love Sunseed!

Sunseed, a non-formal education project for the transition towards sustainability, is based in an ancient little Andalusian village with a long historical background. The electricity is provided by solar panels, a nearby water source provides water for daily use and natural water treatments are used for sewage. The village is home for about 50 people and is a hub for creative projects like Sunseed, Pita-Escuela, Casa de la Realidad and Cultura de la Tierra.

Sunseed is located in a valley of the endangered Rio Aguas in the natural reserve of Karst en Yesos de Sorbas, famous for its gypsum crystal caves. Various hiking trails are located in the valley, including a route to the source of the river passing through the natural pools.

Sunseed was first conceived in 1982 during a talk at a green festival by Harry Hart, co-founder of the charity Green Deserts. In August 1986, having rented a house in arid Southeast Spain, a small joint project began looking at practical ways of combating desertification. In March 1987 Green Deserts withdrew and Sunseed Desert Technology and The Sunseed Trust were inaugurated to direct the project.
