Pachawa is an ecology centre in the south of Portugal that I have been consulting for to develop the Permaculture Design. It is a great opportunity to spend time on an emerging Permaculture site and experience what it means to design, implement and maintain full Permaculture systems.
The surroundings are just amazing and include a river (walking distance) and stunning beaches and hikes!

The venue of the course is involved in many regenerative activities including an organic farm, a research centre and one of the few eco-building companies in Italy. The project is very active in Permaculture and is one of the few places visited by Geoff Lawton for the reactivation of an abandoned village through Permaculture design. The abandoned village will be visited during one of the free afternoons. Moreover, the site hosts the biggest, legally recognised, adobe eco-building in Europe!

Summary: 

Learn at one of the most established Permaculture projects in Europe—the off-the-grid Permaculture education center, Terra Alta. With 10 years as a permaculture site-in-development, a center for research and education, and with over 20 Permaculture Design Certificate Courses (PDCs) taught, Terra Alta, led by visionary Permaculture teacher Pedro Valdjiu, offers Permaculture education at the highest level. Alongside Permaculture, Terra Alta is committed to bioregionalism, evidenced by the involvement of local guest teachers and by the Waldorf school, "Escola da Terra", that Pedro Valdjiu and his life partner, educator Rita Seixas run which, together with Terra Alta form the nonprofit “Waldorf Association of Sintra”.

The two-week PDC is an internationally recognized intensive program that equips students with:
a comprehensive understanding of the concepts of Permaculture tools and know-how to design your own regenerative projects the basics for land design and whole-systems thinking tools to better navigate society as well as your own inner landscape.

The course is an introduction and stepping stone towards advanced land-design or teacher training programs. That being said, we support students’ continuing education through offering lifetime access to our knowledge base (read more about it below) and by providing recommendations for advanced programs you may want to take after the PDC. Formats vary from locale to locale, tailored to suit the local environment and expertise of the teaching team. Like other PDCs around the world, Terra Alta's PDC has at its core Bill Mollison's 72-hour curriculum. David Holmgren’s seven domains of permaculture action are also paramount in our permaculture teachings. Also in line with other PDCs, ours is designed to reflect the conditions of our locale—the beautiful bioregion of Sintra. Pedro is a certified teacher through the UK Permaculture Association.

Summary: 

Permaculture design is all about creating ecologically sound ways of living based on observing natural systems and applying ecological principles to what we do. It equips you to care for the earth, yourself, and others in ways that are resilient, abundant, and rewarding - and it can be a truly life-changing and empowering approach to learn.
The basic qualification for doing permaculture design is a Permaculture Design Certificate. This course offers you the opportunity to gain your PDC over a period of several months, plus a minimum of 16 hours guided home study, to cover the full PDC curriculum. The certificate follows the Permaculture Association's approved curriculum, which is recognised by other permaculture practitioners internationally.
The essential pre-requisites during 2021, due to Covid restrictions, are participation in two online courses - Introduction to Permaculture & The Living Soil. Following this, there will be two long weekends in the autumn when our group will come together in person at two inspirational sites in West Wales. The first, Blaeneinion, is an inspiring conservation & permaculture project set in 75 acres of land at the head of Artists Valley, near Machynlleth. The second, the Centre for Alternative Technology, is a world renowned learning & demonstration centre for ecological ways of living,
Your tutors, Dr Angie Polkey and Dr Alice Gray, have between them many decades of experience in using permaculture thinking and applying it in practice, both in the UK and abroad, They are established teachers with a wide range of experience in teaching diverse groups of adults in accessible and dynamic ways.

While living in the city he dedicated 3 years on developing a urban permaculture project in the center of Lisbon and co created the Portuguese Permaculture Institute. That's how it all started. Helder never stopped and this last months spent his time working with Quechua farmers in the Andes and designing projects in the Amazon jungle.
