Permaculture Intro Weekend Course

Permaculture Intro Weekend Course

18th - 21st June 2021

We are excited to invite you for one weekend permaculture adventure.

The course takes place on our charming farm in the heart of Portugal.

Let’s learn, experiment, have fun and see, how can we make a positive change!

During the course we introduce you to the permaculture world, its main principals and ethics. You will find out about gardening techniques, natural building, social and community aspect, technology and other topics. To make it fun and effective, we blend theory with hands-on practice. There will be time to rest in the shade of trees and watch permaculture related movies under the stars. It’s a wonderful opportunity to spend a weekend in relaxed, healthy environment and get inspired. As well as meet other interesting people and experience a positive group spirit.

As a part of the course you will get a file with lots of books and videos, that we found inspiring on our path of learning with permaculture. Amongst other resources, will work with The Permaculture Student 1 – textbook, which you will take home with you as well in PDF form.

We will enjoy the facilities of Quinta Kania Farm and the beauty of forests in Portugal. There are various types of accommodation to choose from, to suit any personal needs.

Below you can look up the topics listed and the day schedules. We would like to keep the course flexible and stay oriented on individual interests. That means we will leave plenty of time to answer questions and advise.

Feel free to get in touch!
