INFO Contact: sublimart(at)hotmail.com

The New School Permaculture PDC is centred on the needs of the student.So you get what you need.
This course is presented by creative non formal education methods, that are based on creating a bridge between the right and left side of the brain, so that the analytical and creative abilities of the students get fully stimulated and get the most out of the experience...for many people is the most empowering and inspiring transformative process of their lives...and they carry this with them everywere they go....and thats our goal.

Whatever your plans for the future are, the Permaculture Design Course will give you the perspective and tools required to find positive solutions towards a sustainable life....that creates abundance for all organisms and natural systems.

The course follows a set syllabus and leads to the internationally recognise Permaculture Design Certificate.

Taught by Helder Valente and friends of the New School Permaculture .
Helder studied and worked with pioneers like Bill Mollison, Sepp Holzer, Doug Bullock, Rosemary Morrow, Darren dougherty, Ernst Gotsh and others, and is now teaching all over the world.

He started in 2009 teaching permaculture to students at the agriculture university and since then learning and teaching on many different climates.
While living in the city he dedicated 3 years on developing a urban permaculture project in the center of Lisbon and co created the Portuguese Permaculture Institute. That's how it all started. Helder never stopped and this last months spent his time working with Quechua farmers in the Andes, designing projects in the Amazon jungle and ecovilages like Findhorn. Verry recently he was one of the presenters at the IPC International Permaculture congress in Havana Cuba

This course will be in the beautiful subtropical island of Tenerife in the Canary islands - Spain.This island has amazing microclimates, you can find plants of cold climates like chestnuts to tropical fruits like pineaples growing verry close apart.

The subjects covered during this Permaculture Design Course include:

The ethics and principles of Permaculture
Learning strategies
