Azula is a new and fresh permaculture project founded in August 2016, in the beautiful Alentejo region of Portugal. The founders are full of enthusiasm, passion, determination and knowledge, and they are transforming this previously heavily grazed land, into an abundant off the grid farm by applying fully integrated Permaculture design systems. This is a fantastic opportunity to see how you can really make dreams into reality by designing and building a Permaculture project from scratch. Not only will you be partaking in a two week long immersion into everything that is Permaculture, but you will also be part of the beautiful Azula community and thereby learn how to live and thrive with people from all walks of life, go back to basics and becoming more connected with nature. Our aim is to create a supportive learning community for the duration of the course where trust, compassion, support and connection is built among participants, facilitators and farm members

Permaculture Design Course - PDC 72hr
This price includes all meals, a comfy bed in the bell tent-dormitory for the duration of the course, transportation to and from the farm to Sao Luis (picking up on April 13th and dropping off on the 28th) and all course tuition and materials. If you would like to have more privacy, you can book one of our lovely private bell-tents during the course where you will have electricity, a closet and plenty of space. There will be an added cost of €30 per day.
We ask all registrants to make a deposit of €100 to secure your spot and the remaining fees (€450) be paid in cash on arrival.
The course will include a broad range of topics applicable to life anywhere on this planet, it will be tailored to the needs of the students present as well as the location at hand. We will cover every major topic in Bill Mollison’s Permaculture: a Designers Manual in the classroom and also in the gardens.
This PDC promises to be a very unique experience. We teach, based on our real life experience with Permaculture from over 10 years’ experience in many varieties of climate. It is our goal to live, breath and practice Permaculture every day of our lives and we are very passionate to share as much of our knowledge as possible. The 72 hours of course work, required to receive a Permaculture Design Certificate, will be covered over the two week period. It promises to be a PDC full of energy and excitement, where sessions will be taught to accommodate different learning styles combining lectures, group discussions, visual demonstrations, hands-on participatory learning and other creative ways of teaching permaculture. Participants will take part in the existing permaculture activities on the farm and see firsthand how integrated permaculture systems and holistic design are applied and maintained.
