What is Permaculture?
Permaculture is a sustainable design system that provides for human needs while having positive effects on the surrounding environment.

 

 It is based on the ethics of earth care, people care and fair share, and provides practical solutions to the global crises we are currently facing.
 
Helder studied and worked with pioneers like Bill Mollison and Geoff Lawton in Turkey, Doug Bullock in the Amazon, Rosemary Morrow in Austria, Graham Bell in Scotland, Darren dougherty, Ernst Gotcsh, Sepp Holzer in Portugal and many others in countries like Haiti, Canada, Egipt, Finland, Peru, always learning and practicing this sustainable design methods.
 
While living in the city he dedicated 5 years on developing urban permaculture projects and for the last 5 years traveling and developing permaculture institutes around the world. 
 
 It all started in 2009 teaching permaculture to students at the agriculture university and since then learning and teaching in many different climates and getting to know the old ways and new ways of sharing information.

 By December 2012 in the Peruvian Amazon working in support to the shipibo indigenous communities Helder created the New School Permaculture and  is now developing alternative educational methods.
 
In 2013 the New School has been presenting at the IPC International Permaculture congress in Cuba and sharing experience about ecosocial regeneration.

 

The New School Permaculture uses creative and inspiring educational tools that enable the students to empower each other in a way that many people have never seen before.

Permaculture Food Forests Course – 8/11 August – Portugal

New School Permaculture
Food Forests Course

Course @ Casalinho – Central Portugal 8–11 August 2013
 
 
 
A food forest is a garden where we encourage nature to do the majority of the work, yet are able to harvest an abundance of fresh food. Sounds too good to be true? Well it’s not! Join us to learn how to create one in any urban, suburban or rural space, even where space is at a premium.
 
A food forest is modelled on natural woodland, with crops being grown in multiple layers to produce the maximum yield from a minimum of space. Imagine a diverse and multi-layered mix of tree canopy, berry-laden shrubs, vines, ground cover and planting beds. Plants are chosen which benefit each other and attract beneficial inspects. A healthy, fertile and diverse ecosystem is created which ultimately requires little work from you apart from harvesting. Very little digging, watering, weeding or pest control, and as beautiful as any woodland edge!
 
This four day course, through a combination of classroom based and practical sessions, will give you all the tools you need to design your own food forest.
 
– Why make a food forest
– Laying out a food forest
– Ensuring that your food forest has enough nutrients
– Multifunctional pathways
– Building in abundance and resilience
– Low maintenance food growing
– Patterns in nature
– Understanding and maximising edge
– Water management
– Creating a detailed design
– Succession planning
– Implementation plans
– Tree and plant guilds
 
This course will be taught in English by Helder Valente. Helder is native Portuguese, so Portuguese speakers need not worry about translation for troubling words or ideas.
 
Helder studied permaculture with Bill Mollison and now teaches all over the world. You can read about Helder and see examples of his design work here.www.sublimart.blogspot.com

QUE ES PERMACULTURA ?
La permacultura surge como una respuesta, como una propuesta positiva a la crisis energética del sistema actual y plantea soluciones prácticas para la viabilidad humana en un mundo dónde la energía fósil está en declive y el clima se alborota.

Dado que el modelo de agricultura moderna depende de los combustibles fósiles, tanto en su producción (maquinaria; herbicidas, fungicidas y pesticidas) como en su transporte, la permacultura propone desarrollar técnicas de agricultura sostenibles y locales parahacer frente al futuro.

La permacultura es el diseño de entornos humanos sostenibles. Trata de una ciencia de diseño que observa e imita el funcionamiento de los sistemas naturales para crear entornos sostenibles, capaces de satisfacer las necesidades de sus habitantes, sin explotar ni contaminar el medioambiente, y de forma perdurable a largo plazo.
