Project: El Espino

Posted by claudio Rubilar almost 13 years ago

happy days and hard days here in the drylands


april has been a month of encounter and reencounters, all began with the "ecoaldea" 's reunion at el manzano where we join and share with our friends from all over the country. then at easter we recived a new group of volunteers where we harvest the grape, mulched the high beds and share great food and music with quiltro and charagüilla, noah and henry , the great valentina and of course all the delicate sense of humour of ruben humor


now, along with the rains, the wine is alrady in process, resting on his barrels and we are preparing all for the first round of courses of urban permaculture that we are gonna realize at santiago begining the 14 of may.

all is better and we have plenty to do

(original text)

Abril ha sido un mes de encuentros  y reencuentros… Todo comenzó con la reunión  del consejo de redes de ecoaldeas en el Manzano, donde participamos y compartimos con nuestros queridos amigos de distintos emprendimientos en el país. Luego, de regreso en casa, recibimos a un grupo entusiasta de amigos y voluntarios en la minga de semana santa, donde cosechamos la uva materia prima para nuestro vino orgánico, mulcheamos las camas altas, y compartimos  buena comida y mejor música con el Quiltro y la Charagüilla, los incomparables Noah y Henry, la gran Valentina, y por supuesto, toda la delicadeza humorística del incomprendido Rubén Humor.

Ahora, junto con las lluvias, el vino ya está en proceso descansando en sus barriles, y nosotros preparamos todo para el primer ciclo de talleres de permacultura urbana que realizaremos en Santiago a partir del 14 de mayo de este año…Todo muy bien, y mucho que hacer

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.



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.

Male memberFemale member

Permaculture Matchmaker

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.


PDC Verified

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.


PDC Teacher

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


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.

The individual with this badge is indicating they are, have, or would like to do paid permaculture design consultancy work. As such, the individual may or may not have permaculture consultancy experience. Watch their updates for evaluation.


Community Project

Community projects are projects that help develop sustainable community interaction and increase localised resiliency.
