The Permaculture camps are a hands-on learning experience. The participants will be invited to co-create green spaces, and participate in the daily care routine of the CAMPO DO VALE pedagogical campus; headquarters of the New Discoveries Project Association. They will as well take part in the others routines at the Vale da Lama Farm.
