EARLIER this year The Sunday Times voted Palma de Mallorca the best city in the world. Shortly afterwards The Vegan Society announced that Mallorca was potentially a candidate for the number one vegan destination. All good news and it would be easy to sit back and let it wash over sat on one of Mallorca’s beautiful beaches, but for some people working the land, this is not the case.
Permamed, a local non-profit association, is working hard to get permaculture understood and recognised all over the island and their vision is to create a community that lives off the land in a healthy and sustainable manner.
With three permanent demonstration sites around the island, this association offers courses on permaculture design, bio-construction, forest gardens and regenerative communities. Schools and those interested in learning more about these methods are invited to come and visit. The sites are in Llubi, SaCabaneta and CasConcos.
This weekend Permamed presents the first of six courses, which upon completion will provide a certificate in permaculture design. More information can be found at their website on www.permamed.org or on their Facebook page Permaculture Mediterránea.
