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.

Support our Project

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


Whether you lead a Scout group, a youth group, or any other sort of group, here at Casalinho e Escabeldo we’d be pleased to discuss hosting your camp event.

We can offer you camping accommodation in beautiful surroundings where you can take full advantage of all that nature and the local area has to offer. You can either pay a very reasonable rate to camp here, or organise a working holiday where your group can help us out with various projects around the farm in exchange for your stay. You can organise your own meals if you’d like, but if you’d prefer to relax we can organise shopping and cooking on your behalf. If you would like us to arrange outings for you we would be happy to do so.

Chat to us to discuss your requirements. There are no hard and fast rules, as we recognise that every group has different requirements.
