Project SAFE - Silvo Arable Agro Forestry Project
Quinta Vale da Lama

Quinta Vale da Lama is an innovative land-based project in South Portugal, developed since 2008 using Permaculture Design tools. The project consists of a partnership between an educational NGO and an Agro-tourism company, showcasing new approaches to education, farming, and tourism within the vision of a solidary economy.

Agriculture as practiced at Q.VdL is fundamentally oriented to regenerating the health of our bodies, lands, and economy. Education is focused on cultivating relationship through practical, hands-on experiences with the content, and based on experiencing the joys of a caretaking role for people as stewards of nature. Tourism is an opportunity to recharge personal energies and contribute - we reinvest surplus from tourism to regenerate ecosystems on the farm.

We believe in a world beyond sustainabilty - where the process of meeting human needs can simultaneously regenerate and improve ecological and social systems.

RegenAg UK

RegenAG UK (RAUK) connects farmers, smallholders, and other interested parties with leading pioneers and trainers/experts in Regenerative Agriculture - via short courses, seminars and workshops - and facilitates collaboration and peer-peer learning.

We recognise the importance of a healthy water cycle, along with mineral cycles and biodiversity, as foundations for a sustainable permanent agro-ecological production base. So we focus on building soils and restoring ecosystems as the foundation to regenerating agriculture and improving resilience, promoting methods and approaches which work synergistically with natural (ecosystem) processes to optimise production whilst restoring / rebuilding resilient biodiverse landscapes.

Alongside this, dependency on external inputs is minimised and where possible eliminated, and we look for optimal animal health and quality of produce, and to increase farm profitability - whilst integrating the human element in ways which support quality of life for the wider community as well as farming families.

So far events have been concentrated in the south/Midlands of England, but this is steadily expanding and we aim to support making the material accessible across the UK and Ireland.
