Permaculturing in Portugal

One family's attempts to live in a more planet-friendly way

QUINTA COURSES

Government restrictions on free movement and assembly put in place in response to CoViD-19 very regrettably meant we had to cancel all our courses in 2020, some quite literally only at the last minute.

After 2019's great start to the quinta's career as an education centre and its ongoing recovery from the 2017 wildfires, this has been quite a considerable blow, not least in the resources invested in preparing for courses which could not then take place.

For 2021, we are resuming (circumstances permitting) our programme of Permaculture Design Certificate courses in partnership with Circle Permaculture. We've chosen July and August as being the months most likely to feature the least restrictions. July's PDC is now fully-booked and we have scheduled another for August.

We also hope to organise a rocket mass heater build and more natural building and vermicomposting toilet workshops, but for the moment are adopting a stance of watching and waiting to see how events unfold.
