Project Summary

Observation: Stream invaded by mimosas, no water running from spring to outumn. Area 3,5 hectares. Design: Focus on regenerate the soils, speeding the sucession as key for bring the forest back. First fase was designing and implement the water catchment, that will supply ferrocimento tank and hidro turbine.

Project Description

Jovem agricultor com projecto Proder aprovado (shiitake e mel como produtos ancora) solicitou projecto para regeneração ribeirinha. A linha de água está marginalizada, infestada de mimosas e eucaliptos, e pouca água corre de momento. Cerca de 700mts por 50mts são a área de intervenção.

São estes os principais objectos de design:
-Regeneração da circulação de água.
-Regeneração ripícola com instalação de floresta autóctone sobre uma presente infestação de mimosas.
-Selecção de espécies com floração de inverno para apoio à apicultura biológica.
-Instalação de zonas de produção de cogumelos.

A implementação é feita em três fases principais, que se extendem até 2022, sendo que a primeira fase já foi iniciada, com os trabalhos de afunilamento, captura e armazenamento de água dos escorrimentos superficiais.


Starting the implementation of the forest!

From the 10th to the 18th of november, we start the forestation of this project.

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.

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.
