Tierramor Permaculture Design Join our diverse team of permaculture instructors led by Hugo Soto and Scott Gallant of Porvenir Design, for this life-changing 2-week experience. Additional teachers will be announced soon. The course covers the core Permaculture Design curriculum and emphasizes creating diverse multi-functional human landscapes based on ecological patterns.

This two-week course will include a specific focus on the topic of Syntropic Farming, an agroforestry methodology developed in Brazil by Ernst Gotsch. We will have the chance to design a new syntropic farming area, give maintenance to existing systems, and in general see this methodology in action.

Utilizing Tierramor as a living classroom, the class will mix lectures and hands-on work, exploring design solutions for both temperate and tropical regions. Putting Permaculture into practice, the course concludes with students working in teams to create their own permaculture site design.

The whole-systems design thinking outlined in the course will give participants the tools to re-design and improve their surroundings; from gardens, farms, and homes, to livelihoods, relationships, and communities.

The farm at Tierramor exists primarily to trial and document the most innovative agricultural designs and practices for dry tropical forests. It seeks to do so by blending human and ecological needs and land use, creating an environment that integrates the many functions and needs of the project.  The farm is the first phase, approximately 5 hectares, of a larger 200 hectare project.
