Official Permaculture Design Course From 11 to 19 of September 2010, the official 72 hours Permaculture Design Course will take place in the Várzea da Gonçala, Aljezur, Portugal.

The course follows a 72 hour set syllabus and leads to the internationally recognized Permaculture Certificate.

Tutor: Lesley Martin was an organic grower and farmer in Cornwall for 20 years before taking a Permaculture Design course in 1995. She went on to take the Permaculture Diploma, with a 2 year teaching apprenticeship.

After qualifying as a teacher in Adult Education she delivered Government funded Permaculture Training Courses throughout the South West of England before moving to Portugal in 1999.

The subjects covered include:

Ethics and principles; Learning strategies; Pattern in design; Bio diversity; Water in the landscape; Forests and trees; Soils; Climate; Buildings and structures; Formal/informal economies; Community development;

The course includes a number of practical sessions and culminates in a 2 day design workshop.

The place: Várzea da Gonçala is a smallholding/community located 7km NE from Aljezur, on the west Algarve.

We live in harmony with each other and the surrounding nature and have a few requests for you:

• Please do not bring dogs. We already have one here and there are enough locally as it is.

• We only use bio-degradable cleaning products, so please do not bring shampoos, soap etc, that our grey water treatment system will not enjoy. Suitable products will be available for purchase here.

• To avoid too many cars here, we are able to collect you from Aljezur, should you opt to travel by public transport. For further info, please contact us. • We do have internet access here and mobile signal is not brilliant. We do have the landline phone though, and can take messages for you whilst you are here.

• Whilst we have no objection per se of parents bringing children, we do not have facilities or people to look after them, and hope people respect the fact that this is an adult learning course and children could cause an unwanted distraction for all.

• Please respect our daily doings and do not arrive before the afternoon of 5th March.

• Live-in buses and vans by prior arrangement only. Thanks.
