A model settlement of the future should be well-integrated into healthy
natural surroundings. For this we need to interact and communicate well
with our co-creatures. Ecology is the outer expression of a human settlement. It encompasses contact between humans, animals, plants and natural elements. A decisive aspect of a healthy ecology is water. Tamera is
developing a model project for natural water management and the natural
regeneration of damaged landscapes - for Southern Europe and worldwide.
One goal of the Tamera ecology team is that Sepp
Holzer's work becomes known and that many people –
engineers, farmers and also non-specialists – may learn
and understand that the land can be healed.
For some years already, there have been open days
several times a year with tours through the water landscape and the chance to ask questions. These days are
used by interested people, specialists and families from
all over Portugal to get to know Tamera and its projects.
To allow a deeper understanding, seminars are held and
an education program with Holzer is offered within the
framework of the Global Campus.
We i ntend to devel op an institute for Holzer' s
Permaculture here in Tamera. The high level of interest in
this country shows how much this is called for. Together
with committed environmentalists, specialists and hands-on workers, we want to create a force to return the original power of nature to the land. Only together will we be
able to halt desertification and make the land green
