Permaculture Design Course / Portugal

Posted by Silvia Floresta over 3 years ago

Tuesday 1st July – Thursday 9th July 2014

Permaculture is for EVERYONE, regardless of their education, background, or previous experience.

Permaculture is NOT just about trees, or just about gardening! You don’t need loads of land to practice it and it’s a design method that can be applied to all social systems.

Whatever your plans for the future, the Permaculture Design Course will give you the perspective and tools required to find positive solutions towards a sustainable life.

This is an intensive course, where we will concentrate fully on the permaculture immersion for the whole nine days. You’ll receive the full 72 hours teaching plus practical sessions, but we’ll be working hard! It’s ideal for those who are time short or just prefer a more intense experience. For those who are able, there is the opportunity to stay on at Casalinho as a volunteer after the course and try some additional permaculture in action.

Official Permaculture Design Course

When? Tuesday 1st July – Thursday 9th July 2014

What? The official 72 hours Permaculture Design Course

Where? Casalinho e Escabelado, Aradas, 3320-361 Unhais o Velho, Pampilhosa da Serra / portugal

The course follows a 72 hour curriculum Taught in English by Silvia Floresta.

Silvia studied her own PDC with Doug Crouch and then continued her permaculture education with Geoff Lawton and the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia. She is currently involved with a number of permaculture projects here in Portugal (Instituto Permacultura de Sintra, Permaculture para Crianças, Quinta dos Sete Nomes) and a popular permaculture teacher. She has a passion for seeds, and believes the best legacy she can leave to her children (and ours!) is a healthy planet.

Andrea and Jeroen are your hosts here at Casalinho. Andrea’s PDC inspired her so much that she insisted Jeroen also do one, and the first PDC taught at Casalinho was born! In 2012 our eldest son also achieved his PDC here, making him one of the youngest graduates. This will be the sixth PDC to be taught at Casalinho. We’re now working towards the Diploma in Advanced Permaculture Design with Casalinho as our focus. We’re assisted in our projects by the international volunteers that we host, a fabulous opportunity to bring permaculture to a wider audience and expose ourselves to new ideas and inspirations. The rest of this website should give you the flavour of our project.

The subjects covered during this Permaculture Design Course include:

  • The ethics and principles of Permaculture
  • Learning strategies
  • Pattern in design
  • Biodiversity
  • Water in the landscape
  • Forests and trees
  • The importance of Soils
  • Climate
  • Buildings and structures
  • Formal / informal economies
  • Community development

The course includes a combination of classroom and practical sessions and culminates in a design workshop.
