About Francisco Amaral

Early on my childhood i had this dream of becoming an amazonian guardian or living in the savanna grasslands in kenya. The wild world outside was calling me.
Ever since, i have this feeling of getting closer to nature in every steps and big decisions i made in my life.

At college i became graduated in enviromental engineering by IST, from Technical University of Lisbon and was when i first had contact with permaculture and transition ideals. It was not a deep contact and neither in the academic context. I was just studying some landscape arquitecture when i cross into it.
Since then, i start to get into Permaculture subjects with more and more interest and by my own.

On 2011 i decided to get the Permaculture Design Certificate with Lesley Anne Martin at Quinta Cabeça do Mato and oficially start my pathway on permaculture. Since then i have been in several permaculture and organic farms as WWOOFer, in some workshops on gardening, and in some eco-building experiences.

On 2012 i start my designed permaculture travels. India, where i lived in Auroville.. Nepal where i was living and volunteering in Himalayan Permaculture Centre. And now in The Channon at the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia, taking the 10-week Internship Program with Geoff Lawton.
