What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a sustainable design system that provides for human needs while having positive effects on the surrounding environment.

It is based on the ethics of earth care, people care and fair share, and provides practical solutions to the global crises we are currently facing.

Permaculture is for EVERYONE, regardless of their education, background, or previous experience.

Permaculture is NOT just about trees, or just about gardening! You don't need loads of land to practice it and it's a design method that can be applied to all social systems.

Book up for a Summer Permaculture Design Course PDC


So our summer schedule of courses is now live, and we’re taking bookings. This year we’re offering a choice of three Permaculture Design Courses, all certified by the UK Permaculture Association and taught by Josh Gomez. They’re differing lengths, so there should be one to suit everyone.

This year, for the first time and at the suggestion of previous participants, we’re offering a PDC spread over a month. Josh will be joining us for taught sessions, and we’ll be doing lots of practical work and demonstrations in between.

And of course, we’re offering two shorter options for those who are shorter of time. Full details and prices are on our courses page.

We’ll look forward to welcoming you to Casalinho 🙂

    Bom dia!!

    I would like to participate in your extended PDC this summer! Do you still have one place available? And I think, I am right with, that one does not need a specific pre knowledge? I do not have any practical knowledge on agriculture/perma culture. But i finished a Bachlor in International Development at Wageningen University last year. The focus (except for some free choice courses i followed) was more on the economic/social realms of agriculture.
    Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Looking forward to hear from you,

    I am sorry for leaving that comment here. I thought this would be the place to contact you for the course 🙂

  • No worries Marcel! We do have space on the course, and I’ll email you direct to chat about it.
