People Care with Permaculture – August

People Care with Permaculture, with Helder Valente and New School Permaculture.

Monday 12th – Thursday 15th August 2013


Learning to design and care for ourselves, our communities, and the planet.

This four day course is designed to be useful to anyone who interacts with others. So unless you’re a hermit, that’s YOU!

Have you ever asked yourself one of these questions?

  • Managing people is so much harder than developing the land. How can I do it better?
  • Where do I start when trying to create and organise my project?
  • How do I keep the people involved in my project happy and inspired?
  • When challenges appear, how do I keep moving forward?
  • I want to keep inspired and manifest my vision for the future. How can I get support and help others realise their own visions?

Then this course will help you find solutions.

During the course we will explore:

  • Decision making
  • Social organisation
  • Conflict resolution
  • Power of celebration
  • Alternative economy
  • Sustainable community

….. and probably much more …..!


This course will be taught in English by Helder Valente. Helder is native Portuguese, so Portuguese speakers need not worry about translation for troubling words or ideas.

Helder Valente

Helder studied permaculture with Bill Mollison and now teaches all over the world. You can read about Helder and see examples of his design work here.

Helder facilitated a well received Introduction to Permaculture and Permaculture Design Course here earlier this summer (read one participant’s story here), and we’re looking forward to welcoming him back to Casalinho.
