About Silvia Floresta

Since childhood I have a huge passion for country life, plants , seeds , animals and people !
I studied botany , soil regeneration , worked in the natural park of Sintra in Portugal for a few years where I learned lots of skills , from plant propagation , seed collection and conservation , recognition of pests and diseases in plants ( trees ) , learned historical gardening .

I work with about 900 species of natural flora of the region ( sintra) in which half of them are Mediterranean, and about 10% are plants worldwide are found only in one area, the rest are endangered species, which are in the Serra de Sintra, favorable conditions for their survival.

One of my main jobs is colect and save seeds of endemic and highly endangered species.
started a project to permaculture gardens in schools in 2008 and has since I have worked with schools in my community .
During this journey I was giving training in various areas related to sustentabilidae , conservation and collection of seeds , vegetable gardens on balconies , permaculture in the kitchen ( fermented ) , composting , permaculture for children and schools , natural soap , Urban permaculture, and various workshops do yourself .
I got involved in various projects of community gardens in some towns near Lisbon .
I became involved in the project as voluntary and Campanha das sementes livres and develop some workshops related to collection and conservation of traditional seed varieties and helped collect traditional seeds with the farmers .
Among those things I was studying for the PRI Australia, where I did an internship of 10 weeks :

Have a passion for seeds , and i believe that the future of traditional varieties is in its preservation and freedom of all seeds! thus began my journey into the world of permaculture!
