Project Summary

Earth Neighbours is about (respectfully) reoccupying abandoned land, focusing around existing 'Earth Care' projects, with the intention of creating neighbourhoods of regenerative action.

Project Description

The Earth Neighbours initiative is about (respectfully) reoccupying available and abandoned land, focusing around existing 'earth care' projects, with the intention of creating neighbourhoods of regenerative activity.

It aims to do this by connecting people who are searching for land (and wishing to start there own sustainable projects) with existing 'earth care' projects here in Portugal that can facilitate access to either some of their own land, or to abandoned land surrounding them.

The intention is to create a support network, to not only help further the goals of each neighbouring project but also, and more importantly, to work in synergy towards a collective goal; to serve and protect the land. Regeneration, reforestation and conservation.

---

It is also about creating conscious rural communities here in Portugal that are willing to confront and creatively tackle very relevant topics that are damaging to the ecology such as monocrop foresting (especially of eucalyptus), the increase of (man made) bush fires that threaten the reforestation process and other issues such as reckless hunting that is prevalent in many rural areas.

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.

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.
