1st – 9th October 2016

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.

// Course structure:
The first hour of the days will be theory of techniques and strategies, the remainder will be “hands on” practical’s, here at Corga we believe people learn by doing.

// Subjects covered will include:
Permaculture design
Topography and mapping
Regenerative forestry techniques
Erosion and natural succession
Techniques for erosion control
Mono culture conversion
Applied mycology in forestry
Pruning, cuttings and transplants
Pioneers and invasive’s

// About the teacher:
Nuno is the founder member of Terracrua and works with private land owners as well as council projects in Portugal. He teaches with us every year on the Permacuture design course (see relevant page)

His passion is regeneration of forest, land and rivers, and has many years’ experience in these fields.

// What the course includes:
Certificate of attendance
Accommodation (mainly dormitory)
All meals

Price – 300 e (equates to 33e per day)
