Hi everybody, I'm writing here about the next coming of Max Lindegger in Europe. Well, he needs no introduction, he is the designer of Crystal Waters, first permaculture ecovillage, and creator/director of Global Ecovillage Network Oceania/Asia... (www.ecologicalsolutions.com.au/max.html)
For the birth of a new Master Unit (a sort of ecovillage based on volunteer work, service to the local community), he will come to Europe in mid may, to help designing the overall plan, and giving a special permaculture design course of 9 days, in the beautiful Portugal. 2h and half from Lisbon or Porto, it's a special place where to meet and learn permaculture directly from Max, and be present to the birth of this project.
