Just wanted to let other European Permies know that there is a strong movement happening in Portugal now. We are hosting another course in July which you can see the official details below. It will be at Escola Da Terra, a sustainable school to be, which today just got more of the sub-canopy, shrub, and herbaceous layers to the emerging small scale intensive garden and food forest. Many food forests are popping up in the area as this is a beautiful micro-climate here where you can grow Avocados next to Apples. You can see pics and read about the previous courses and projects we are involved from the link below to TreeYo Permaculture. Thanks Doug
