Learn how an innovative eco-village promotes sustainability in farming, construction, and animal husbandry by joining an enlightening workshop there. While exploring the inland eco-village at Sintra, you will meet a group of teachers, students and residents engaged in a variety of collaborative activities that offer a healthy lifestyle and improve the environment. They may be practicing organic farming methods, building structures with sustainable materials, and maintaining bee colonies. Renewable energies power all of their endeavors. The workshop will allow you to participate in the activities. If you find agriculture appealing, you might inquire about the permaculture techniques that provide the community with fresh produce and benefit the environment.
