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.

A Visitor’s Perspective: A Letter to Dona Céu

This is part of a series of posts where we ask one of our visitors to say a few words about their stay. Dominik and Matic wrote this note to the lady who runs our local bar in Unhais o Velho.
Olá Dona Céu, (Scroll down for English)

Vamos embora amanhã, por isso queriamos agradecer por todos os cafés que você nos serviu, todos os pães e outros presentes que você nos deu, mas principalmente para a boa energia e felicidade que você traz para a aldeia e os seus visitantes.

Com seu sorriso caloroso, você é a mão amiga que as pessoas precisam, bem como a ligação entre os moradores. Esperamos que um dia destes volteremos para o seu cafe para vê-la novamente, e espero que nós falaremos Português para que possamos ter um conversa.

Obrigado por tudo, Dominik & Matic 

Tia Ceu

We’re leaving tomorrow, so we want to thank you for all the coffees you’ve made for us, all the bread rolls and other gifts you’ve given us, but mostly for the good energy and happiness you bring to the village and it’s visitors.

With your warm smile, you’re the helping hand that people need, as well as the connection between villagers. We hope that one day we’ll return to the bar to see you again, and hopefully we’ll speak Portuguese so we can have a chat.

Thanks for everything, Dominik & Matic
