Our Next Permaculture Design Course:

Quinta do Vale, Serra do Açor, Central Portugal, Portugal

June 23 – July 7, 2019

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 (featured in this natural homes blog).

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 context with a resilient local sustainability leader.

“Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex,
the solutions remain embarrassingly simple.”
-Bill Mollison


Permaculture is a set of design principles centered around whole systems thinking simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and resilient features observed in natural ecosystems. Tune back into nature and re-align your mind, body and soul.

Our courses are taught by experienced, passionate teachers, incorporate relevant practicals and dynamic lessons, are structured by the chapters of permaculture, A Designer’s Manual, by Bill Mollison, and provide excellent value.

What People Are Saying…

I learned so much in this two weeks! I also got inspiration from people sharing ideas

The best educational experience of my life

The humor, the hugs and advanced experience and stories of teachers. Thank you both, big time!

I loved the way you put the course together. How you created the safe space for us and the respect you show... I loved the course because it showed us the science of how to connect with and cooperate with Mother Earth.
