Reduced fee participation for ´Earthkeepers of Portugal´

Yes, I want to participate in this unique permaculture earthworks course with David Spicer in North Portugal…

… and be considered an ´earthkeeper of Portugal….


We hope you´ve been enjoying reading about this unique chance to learn to really make a change. A much desired change, especially for Southern countries, as our beloved Portugal.  To stimulate the spread of this knowledge throughout Portugal, we are working hard on being able to offer  as much ´reduced fee´ places as possible for inspirational, low income, Portuguese residents.  How many reduced fees we will be able to offer, depends on us getting sponsors and/or getting the maximum number of participants. We are also hoping to offer 1 full grant, free participation, for 1 exceptional participant.

If you would like to be considered an ´Earthkeeper of Portugal´ participant, please fill out below form as completely as you can. We look forward to hearing from you. Please only apply if you are sure you are free during the dates of the course and are 100% sure of participating.

We thank you for your honesty!

  • Please tell us in short, what you are hoping to learn in particular. What are your reasons to participate?
  • We are not going to ask you your early income, because it tells us absolutely nothing. It says nothing about the number of mouths to feed, debts to pay, monthly costs, if you can live of your land or need to go buy it in a shop. If you are a start up business, new landowners starting a sustainable life, a young family etc... We do ask you to give an honest description. No need to spice it up.
    Every now and then, we send out a mail with special deals, offers, unique holiday packages, interesting workshops and more. Please tick your choice of interest.
