Quinta das Moitas is an abandoned rural farm turned Permaculture Regeneration Project, located in the Serra da Estrela region of Central Portugal. It is where the idea first came into being (Read more on that here).

There is vacant land here (some with buildings and water) for serious permaculture hearts ready to take on the challenge. I’ve located most of the owners of the land surrounding me and now it’s a question of just finding the right people for them. People with a serious interest in restoring land together as a collaborative and designing a neighbourhood that can not only protect against current environmental threats (such as fire, hunting, eucalyptus plantations, etc) but also into a new (re)generation. I wish to help restore water, life and conservation rights to the land throughout this whole area.

I’ve also very recently been inspired by the idea of Ecosystem Restoration Camps as proposed by John D. Liu.
