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.

We'll use your donations to further our plans to plant more trees and vines.

It’s amazing the difference a week can […]

Casalinho is full of colour just now, with Spring flowers everywhere. These are a few of my favourites, but I’m afraid I’ve no idea what they’re called.

This one is some sort of orchid. We have them growing at the sides of the stream.
