Join the 10th - 14th October Portugal Permaculture Research Convergence:

Here, practitioners and researchers come together to build skills, share strategies, and develop a convergent research agenda. Different sessions emphasize challenges faced by each group.

Since a significant number of people has joined PIRN, now it is time to go forward and develop together this exciting and promising research network.

New membership surveys have been delivered to the members of each PIRN subgroup. Please complete it in order to enrich and implement the PIRN itself.

I fell in love with alpacas years ago at an agricultural show. Their gentle intelligent faces with lips like camels went straight to my heart. I wanted to sink my fingers deep into their soft fleece but sadly alpacas don’t appreciate being cuddled. I promised myself that one day I would buy some land and keep alpacas.
