Located in the SouthEast Portugal in the municipality of Castro Marim (ALGARVE), Terramada has been a

Permaculture farm since 1985 devoted to reforestation and soil recovery with trees, bushes and no till organic vegetable

gardens according to the Permaculture Design Principles and Ethics.

The region is very quiet because theres a high

degree of human desertification (most people live by the coast - 12 Kms south -on tourism related activities) so it s an

excellent place to relax and enjoy nature.

The main house is situated just by the water (only 5 mts away at full

water level) of a dam that feeds half the Algarve with drinking water. A considerable part of the farm follows the water line

of the dam making it a very special place

On the inside part of the farm there are several irrigated orchards, no

till organic vegetable gardens, tree nurseries and sheds with tools and materials used in the maintenace of the


All the plants and trees planted in the farm (a few hundreds) were never chemically fertilized nor suffered from

any kind of spraying. The soil in vegetable gardens was never ploughd. A sheet mulch system has been used for many years

using hays, straws, cardboards and several other shredded organic materials and today the humus and life content of the soil

is much higher than the original rocky one, 21 years before.

There are plenty of terraces facing the lake, apropriate

for camping and pic-nics, a few have water and one has electric power.
