Permaculture Portugal

Keela Yoga Farm, a Permaculture Portugal project, we build, farm and live based on Permaculture ethics and principles. These are taken from the most sustainable and efficient ancient practices around the world but applied with modern technologies. These principles will ensure we use the minimal amount of energy input to get the most amount of output sustainably. We used these principles when designing the layout of Keela Yoga Farm so that we can transition to a sustainable future; to do this we will need to consider values and concepts outside the current social norm. join us for a Permaculture Design Course, Natural building or Food Forest course. Or come to a yoga retreat with Permaculture.
