ABOUT

The Permaculture camps are a hands-on learning experience. The participants will be invited to co-create green spaces, and participate in the daily care routine of the CAMPO DO VALE pedagogical campus; headquarters of the New Discoveries Project Association. They will as well take part in the others routines at the Vale da Lama Farm.

Our focus for this camp will be to contribute in raising awareness on the importance of soil and ecosystem regeneration, and in support of the promising United Nations Decade for Ecosystem Restoration 2021/2030.

This will be a five-day residential program, where the group will be able to engage in practical action, co-create pedagogical sharing moments about relevant topics, with the support of a facilitating team.
