At Corga da Pereira. With Nuno Mamede (Terracrua)

“Although the problems of the world are hugely complex the solutions remain embarrassingly simple” B. Mollison

Reforesting our areas and our planet is probably the most important activity of our times.

Forests supply all of our needs, from timber, to soil, from rain to air, we are dependent on them

In this 9 day course with Nuno Mamede we shall learn how to forest, reforest any type of land also how to convert from a mono culture.
