About me

Ângela is passionate about Permaculture and Ecological design and even more about teaching, learning and people. She's keen on gardening, soils, seeds, fungi, worms, decision-making, and community management tools and methods. Food preservation and cooking have always been part of her everyday life.
She has been a language teacher ( Portuguese, English, and Spanish) since 2005 and started studying Permaculture in 2014. She completed a PDC in 2015, at Biovilla, in Palmela, Portugal, and since then she facilitates courses related to Permaculture in Environmental Education Centers, schools, online, associations, and at Escola de Permacultura, an urban family project near Lisbon.
She has also designed and implemented several urban projects in associations, schools, and for smallholders.
In 2022, she completed the Permaculture Teacher Training Course with Graham Bell and Rakesh Rootsman Rak and kept on teaching, participating in PDCs, and developing her own project.
Escola de Permacultura is a Permaculture school in a peri-urban context that aims to give tools to anyone who wants to design sustainable human environments. It is more focused on solutions for the urban context through educational programs.
