The UFSC Permaculture Study Group and UFV Architecture Department, were finalized the second permaculture design course directed for academic public. The first edition was performed in Florianópolis city on 2017 when it was certified 14 new professors as permaculturists.

This second edition was organized by Arthur Nanni (UFSC) and Josarlete Soares (UFV). The course was presented on 72 hours with participation of permaculturists Roberto Goulart (UFV), Luiza Valente (UFF) and Jefferson Mota (Igatu farm). In the current edition more 19 permies were certified, including professors, technical workers and postgraduate students.

Focused on academics, the PDC is a basic permaculture training course where pedagogical and teaching, aiming to stimulate professors to spread and popularize permaculture in Brazil, through extension and teaching activities.

As results, the highlight was the inclusion of new colleagues into Brazilian Permaculture Study Group Network. This network congregates permaculture study groups and actions developed on academy environment. Furthermore, the network defined a series of new permaculture popularization initiatives, like the creation of undergraduate and graduate applied disciplines, development of projects evolving different universities, planning for new study groups development and the implementation of teaching materials, aiming the diffusion of permaculture philosophy in all education grades.

The Brazilian Permaculture Study Group Network is now building the next edition of PDC4academy expected for 2022 on Fluminense Federal University.

Woodland and CFH location at UFSC.

The UFSC woodland has around 5ha and is one of the main green areas in Trindade campus. This place has relevant importance to life quality in the university whole socialising space. Its plant cover comprehends some degraded areas and forests in different successional stages. There are three streams conforming buffers of permanent protection along it.

The environmental regeneration project began at 2014 as a initiative of Philosophy and Humanity Sciences Centre (CFH) thought it Revitalisation Commission in association with Permaculture Study Group and UFSC Environmental Management. The major aim is to ally land degradation to food production though agroecosystems designed according to permaculture way.

The permaculture design was a fundamental stage, because could define energetic zones establishing different uses areas and plants to be inserted in the landscape. The zones definition take in consideration the pre-existent elements (tress, buildings, consolidated and circulation areas)  and distances from project focus (zone 0).

Zone 0 – Project focus

Located in the higher terrain in woodland. In this zone the project aim to construct a bioconstruction structure to welcome visitors, teaching actions, socialising,meetings and administrative activities.

Zone 1 – Food garden, didactic circuit, composting and earthworm

Near to zone 0, this zone will be  composed by a food garden designed by agroecology process, a didactic circuit with trail for environmental education and one earthworm space.

Zone 2 – Orchards

This zone will be composed by permaculture orchards with ecological interest fruit trees over current eucalyptus trees.

Zone 3 – Agroforestry

The multifunctional agroforestry will be the principal agroecological arrangement to restoration of riparian forest and permanent protection strip.

Zone 5 – socialising, inspiration and natural regeneration area

The areas chosen to be represent zone 5 are those already have consolidated and climax stage trees.

Nowadays, the project is active and it is performed by collective actions where the permaculture knowledges are shared.
