Project Summary

Núcleo Ambiental da Associação Circuito Explosivo. Este projecto nasce em 2016 com a vontade de mudar algumas coisas no mundo em que vivemos! Somos um centro de investigação na área da sustentabilidade com formações nos domínios da permacultura, agroecologia, agricultura regenerativa, construções naturais, paisagens aquáticas, desenvolvimento pessoal e muito mais. O projecto fica situado no concelho de Sintra, mesmo na fronteira com o concelho de Mafra pertinho de Cheleiros. Quando cá chegámos encontrámos um lugar, triste e abandonado já com marcas do tempo. A paz e a beleza do lugar fizeram-nos acreditar e bem haja a quem acredita connosco! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This project was born in 2016 with the desire to change some things in the world we live in! We are a research center in the area of sustainability with training in permaculture, agroecology, regenerative agriculture, natural constructions, aquatic landscapes, personal development and much more. The project is located in the municipality of Sintra, right on the border with the municipality of Mafra, close to Cheleiros. When we got here we found a place, sad and abandoned, already with the marks of time. The peace and beauty of the place made us believe and well be with those who believe with us!

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.
