Permaculturing in Portugal

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

Courses and workshops

We’re delighted to announce our 2022 programme of courses and workshops at the quinta. This promises to be our busiest year yet with our regular Permaculture Design Courses and associated practicals supplemented by a 2-week rocket stove natural build.

We place special emphasis on small class sizes. This means more individual attention for each student, a more intimate group dynamic and a more comfortable, relaxed classroom experience. This is the kind of place where students become family. So be warned – this place and the landscape and community it’s embedded in can capture your heart and your imagination!

This year, we’re also very excited to be introducing a new initiative.

This is the quinta’s new online Student Forums with an ever-growing library of course-related resources, Q&A forums and the opportunity to keep in touch with fellow students. These forums are private and restricted to students on the quinta’s courses, but once you’re registered on a course here, access will be lifetime.
