[center]A two-day course covering the essentials needed for an endlessly rewarding adventure. [/center]


This course has been specifically designed for people wishing to buy land upon which they intend to create a sustainable lifestyle.

The subjects covered in the course include –

The Permaculture Perspective
- an introduction to the principles and design methods of this holistic approach to sustainability.

Soil - how to assess and improve it.

Sustainable Living - developing self-sufficiency in food and energy

Greywater Systems - creating a constructed wetland treatment pond

Organic and Ecological Gardening
- working with nature to produce....

Building with Natural Materials - adobe, strawbale, cordwood...

Food Preserving
- drying, storing, bottling, pickling etc.

Land Design Skills
– how to represent your ideas on paper.

Places are limited. To reserve a place on the course, contact us either through our email address - mail@varzeavivapermaculture.com - or by telephone (00351) 282 995060. Evenings are best for telephone calls.
