Summary: 

Learn at one of the most established Permaculture projects in Europe—the off-the-grid Permaculture education center, Terra Alta. With 10 years as a permaculture site-in-development, a center for research and education, and with over 20 Permaculture Design Certificate Courses (PDCs) taught, Terra Alta, led by visionary Permaculture teacher Pedro Valdjiu, offers Permaculture education at the highest level. Alongside Permaculture, Terra Alta is committed to bioregionalism, evidenced by the involvement of local guest teachers and by the Waldorf school, "Escola da Terra", that Pedro Valdjiu and his life partner, educator Rita Seixas run which, together with Terra Alta form the nonprofit “Waldorf Association of Sintra”.
The two-week PDC is an internationally recognized intensive program that equips students with:
a comprehensive understanding of the concepts of Permaculture
tools and know-how to design your own regenerative projects
the basics for land design and whole-systems thinking tools to better navigate society as well as your own inner landscape
The course is an introduction and stepping stone towards advanced land-design or teacher training programs. That being said, we support students’ continuing education through offering lifetime access to our knowledge base (read more about it below) and by providing recommendations for advanced programs you may want to take after the PDC. Formats vary from locale to locale, tailored to suit the local environment and expertise of the teaching team. Like other PDCs around the world, Terra Alta's PDC has at its core Bill Mollison's 72-hour curriculum. David Holmgren’s seven domains of permaculture action are also paramount in our permaculture teachings. Also in line with other PDCs, ours is designed to reflect the conditions of our locale—the beautiful bioregion of Sintra. Pedro is a certified teacher through the UK Permaculture Association.

https://www.facebook.com/rasjc/media_set?set=a.10157432909957534&type=3

We are offering a highly affordable and beautiful experience of learning and inspiration, in our PDC course. Based in the natural and gorgeous surroundings of the Sierra Nevada mountains, it is a 16 day long residential course.
The intense theoretical lessons in the classroom are balanced out by practical workshops and exciting 'field trips' to visit two other permaculture projects in the local valleys and mountains. We feel it is important to see the subjects that we study being put into action, experiencing the ways people put permaculture in practice.
The local area also includes many opportunities for continuing your permaculture journey, such as Volunteering on farms, practising design skills, working at the local seed bank, it’s a hive of eco-minded activity!
Taught by local farmer Ras John Cresswell and with special guest teacher Cathy Whitefield, partner of famous U.K. permaculture godfather, Patrick Whitefield. The course will also include five other guest teachers.

This course will be held on the farm of SuperNatural, a beautiful mountainside project, And to keep the students happy there will be lots of fresh organic food coming straight out of the gardens. We are very blessed to be able to have our own spring water and an ancient flood-irrigation system.

This course has a maximum of 25 people, but we had many requests for the last course, so please be quick in booking if you want a place!
