Quinta do Vale is partnering with our local community natural education project, Folha Verde, to host a NATURAL BUILD-IN during July 2019..
This is a natural building course, but with a difference. It’s conceived as a learning experience which not only gives you some natural building knowledge and skills, but also immerses you in our local, largely off-grid community to collaborate on a community project.
The natural build-in runs between July 7th and 28th 2019 in weekly blocks. You can attend as many blocks as you like. You can also stay on after the Permaculture Design Course which runs at Quinta do Vale from June 23rd to July 7th.
We build Monday to Friday. Weekends are kept free for arrivals and departures and for exploring the area or enjoying the many other events and activities which go on here throughout the summer.
Families are welcome – Folha Verde have an open month in July and children aged 6 and over can join in the project’s activities.
We’ll use the same Agile Learning System we use in our community education project as the framework for the build-in. If you’re not already familiar with this system for managing and developing workflow, it’s essentially codified biomimicry. It takes the natural way people self-organise and self-manage to achieve an objective and ensures it’s fully participatory, supportive and successful.
