We began studying Permaculture since 2006 when we attended an introductory course in Cornwall, UK. In April 2009 we organised and attended the first Permaculture Design Course held at Mount of Oaks in central Portugal with Lesley Martin.
Since then we have been creating designs for many different sites in Portugal and the UK and learning constantly, broadening our knowledge and skills base.
Whilst studying for the Permaculture diploma, we have gained diverse experience in facilitating Permaculture courses by working alongside various different teachers and have learnt many different approaches, techniques and exercises. We combine this with our previous experience of working with adults and children in both teaching circus skills and care work to make our courses as informative, enriching and supportive as possible. We accredited as diploma holders in 2011 and are now offering introduction and full certified Permaculture design courses. If you would like to see how last summer’s courses went please have a look at our blog www.nurturingournature.blogspot.com
Also on this web site you will see a portfolio with examples of our design work and some information about our home and lands in Foz da Cova, a tiny mountain village in the Serra of central Portugal. When we arrived in November 2011 it was almost totally abandoned and, step by step and with much help and increasing numbers of inhabitants, we are bringing it back to life.
