Courses in Bahia, Brazil
Dear Friends at the list:
We will be offering a Basic course in September, 15 to 26 in the
Comunnity Campina, in the Diamantina Mountains of Bahia. CostUS$185,
all included. The course will be in Portuguese, but Spanish is all
right... This is a basic course, with a heavy fieldwork element,
especially in agroforests and constructions with adobe. Climate
tropical mountain, hot days, cool nights. Place of incredible beauty.
To be confirmed: a "family get-together" of people practicing
Permaculture for the three days following the course, morning common
work, afternoons sharing experiences, evenings dancing around the
bonfire, capoeira, and whatever else we wish to do... Bring a tent, 5
kilos of non-perishable food, and US$20 to help with expenses...Don't
forget your guitar, your berimbau, or whatever other musical
instrument... This meeting is to be confirmed in July...You can stay on
in the community afterwards, or visit the region, which is great for
trekking and camping. Great season, cool, no rains...
If you are coming from the States, you need a tourist visa, which can be
bureaucratic, to get the ball moving early.
October 11- 15, Teacher's Course, in a retreat center near Salvador.
Price , around US$150 , all included, to be confirmed end July...In
Portuguese( can be Spanish). Themes: non-linear activities of teaching;
how to deal with problem situations; materials disponible in Portuguese
( videos, books, etc.); sharing of personal experiences.
As I will be travelling to Europe as of Sunday, I will be signing off
this list for a month. If you are interested in participating in these
events ( you don't have to speak Portuguese to come to the
get-together!),you can contact me directly this week, or then mid-July
on my return.
