TERRA ALTA PERMACULTURE
Permaculture design education center and community of people committed to cultural regeneration
We know how important experiences are in engaging people in any movement. That is why we've opened our home, Terra Alta, to empower others seeking alternative ways of life by showing them how the commitment of one community-oriented permaculture center has brought about positive change to the bioregion and beyond. The abundant, healing land is host to various educational events listed below, teaching cultural and land regeneration.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How do I get there?
A: There will be 2 pick-up times from Ulgueira (the closest village near us) on the Sunday before the PDC starts. Students receive an email one week before the course starts with details on how to get to Ulgueira, the scheduled pick-up times, and other important information.
Q: What should I bring if I'm attending a PDC/Apprenticeship?
A: This is our recommended packing list: working clothes/shoes, camping gear (tent/sleeping bag/sleeping mat), toiletries, eco-friendly soap, a hat, towel, swim gear, warm clothes (it gets pretty chilly at night), a rain jacket, and a head torch.
In nature we never see anything isolated, but everything in connection with something else which is before it, beside it, under it and over it.
