Permaculture in Practice Course
in Portugal

Come get your hands dirty!

Learn how to design for water abundance!

1st - 7th July 2023

@Pachawa, Alentejo, Portugal 

Also check the half online Permaculture Design course happening right before this course here!


Course Overview

This course is a perfect next step after taking your Permaculture Design Course! Nevertheless, even if you are new to the Permaculture world, you are still more than welcome to join as we will cover the basics of everything while we get our hands dirty!

If you feel like you need to get more practical knowledge and see things in action instead of just studying theory, then this is the right course for you!


The program


During our time together we will focus on putting theory into action. Every day of work will be integrated with a question and answer session, and before implementing every system we will go through a design phase together to help everyone understand the why of what we will be doing. 

Here is a list of the systems and projects we will be working on:

- Maintenance of agroforestry systems

- Design and implementation of a swale (water retention system)

- Design and implementation of a grey water system to recycle waste water from a kitchen

- Maintenance of annual vegetable gardens

Note that the exact systems we will work on will depend on the group's wish as well as weather conditions at the time of the course.

The Facilitators


Eduardo Terzidis is a permaculture teacher and consultant, a writer and a yoga teacher. As an engineer, he wanted to help the world, yet he felt the need to “be out there”, learning and sharing with the very people who seek the same change he envisioned. At the core of his work is the understanding that global change needs to be carried from the inside out, recognising the intricate web of which we are part and being able to play our role in support of all life. Today he focuses on water management and agroforestry for mediterranean and provides 1:1 sessions to individuals to support them in manifesting their mission and dreams.


Nick Steiner is extremely passionate about exploring, developing, and sharing ways of regenerating the world around us. His focus is on working with water and finding smart ways to grow more with less work. He has been working and educating in the field of regenerative agriculture and permaculture for almost a decade. Through his job in building up Climate Farmers he has worked with hundreds of farmers all over Europe on their regenerative journeys.
