Haverá outro contraste mais permente que a nudez dos terrenos Alentejanos? Brutalmente revirados, vez após vez, privados de pelo e pele...
Os meu avô olha para os campos com um ar de confusão, como se sentisse a marcha suicida de quem agora "trabalha" a terra. "Até parece que não vivemos da terra" diz com afinco.
A geração da "Revolução Verde" são de facto os inconscientes carrascos do ofício de agricultor, e o seu legado é um destruição ímpar. E é essa herança que trazemos, com a dor da solidão que provocamos e a devastação que nos convenceram ser 'natural'.
Mas esta realidade não é fardo: é motivação! E a redenção, desse ofício abandonado de Agricultor, emerge num renascimento ético.
Desnudou-se, agora, se vista; se vistam os solos e que a vista vislumbre sombras, e que o solo se cubra de verdes e se aconchegue de amarelos, sob herbáceas, arbustos e árvores!
Um dos primeiros passos é conhecer os habitantes dos espaços, e assim temos vindo a identificar algumas das espécies:

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.
A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.
One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.
People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.
People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.
People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.
People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.
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.
