Water channels under renovation

Project: Mountain Steep Permaculture - Permacultura em Declive de Montanha

Posted by João Gonçalves over 6 years ago

after a few centuries of use and minimum maintenance, the traditional community managed summer irrigation water channels undergo renovation to achieve higher efficiency


In this picture, looking towards east, we see the relative location of the snowed Star Mountain, highest mountain range in Portugal (granitic stone and soils), whose springs and winter snow feed the River Mondego, and the southern Colcurinho Peak, that belongs to the Goshawk Mountain range (schist stone and soils). The Colcurinho peak has several springs that feed by gravity the irrigation channels and tanks a few meters above Chão Sobral, which are now under renovation, as we see below.

These water channels are located above the hamlet and its growing fields, and below the square concrete water tanks (some private and some community managed) which receive and store temporarily water piped from higher up mountain springs. All water flows by gravity pressure and no pumps are involved in this system.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
