A Quinta is a working farm based in the coastal national park in South Western Portugal. The project is all about restoring the land using different ecological methods like regenerative agriculture, holistic animal management, permaculture and water management. We would like to inspire future farmers and anyone else interested in nature and growing food by spreading knowledge through this website, workshops, open days, courses and connections.
Join us on this 5 day course introducing you to a holistic transformation to deep ecological awareness following the principles and pathways of Permaculture and Deep Ecology.
Events will include open days, intensives on several subjects, including key line, permaculture, regenerative agriculture, equine coaching combined with shamanism and other speciality courses. Please contact us for more information on how to organise an event at A Quinta.
A Quinta will host an in depth and inspiring PDC course organised by official permaculture educators bringing you the best learning experience through the land itself and the people.
