Portugal – private quinta, Colares (2014)

Advisory visit to a quinta aspiring to the practice of permaculture.  Key recommendations for initial advances: integration of animals into food systems to improve animal welfare and put animals into vastly more productive function; enhanced use of nitrogen fixing trees and ground covers in food forest areas; introduction of hot-composting; use of rocket stove for heating, utilising canas (a plant previously considered as a nuisance).
