The site's story:
"An Inspiring and Beautiful Project:
After 250 years in our family, Fornalha (traditional mediterranean multi-orchard family farm) was going bankrupt. Leave it? Sell it? No. These are our roots: high quality raw materials, wonderful nature and weather... this is EDEN! We needed a different paradigm, a sustainable one, to save the past knowledge, build our own present and provide a healthy farm for the next generation.
We decided to implement a holistic and multi-business model (instead of a specialized one), using each resource for the best suitable purpose (raw materials, buildings, ourselves, weather), and finding a compromise between economical needs, high quality standards, environmental values and our own personal satisfaction and happiness."
We are very excited to be partnering with Quinta da Fornalha, and particularly with the inspirational Rosa Dias, whose work in saving her family farm earned her a Rural Business award in 2016.
Come join us for an amazing Permaculture Design Certificate course in the Algarve, on a stunning 35ha farm that was saved by a tenacious team during the financial crisis of 2007 after it was used as collateral to secure a bank loan. A fantastic real-world example of a working, profitable, ecological farm that puts earth first.
