Course summary

Let’s explore a design system focused on creating sustainable solutions for both humans and the planet, promoting resource abundance and health.

Permaculture is an ecological and regenerative design method for sustainable human landscapes. It is based on three Ethics: Care for the Earth, Care for People and the Fair Share of Surplus. Permaculture provides a set of tools, technologies, and solutions for living harmoniously and abundantly on this planet.

This workshop is suitable for everyone, including farmers, gardeners, those who are curious, and those seeking tools and solutions to care for the land and people.

Facilitator | Ângela Gonçalves – I have been a language teacher (Portuguese, English, and Spanish) since 2005 and started studying Permaculture in 2013 with Nuno Belchior. I completed a Permaculture Design Course (PDC) in 2015 at Biovilla in Palmela. Since then, I have been facilitating Permaculture courses in Environmental Education Centres, schools, associations and online. I have designed and implemented various urban projects in associations, schools, and for small-scale farmers.
