The Permaculture Water landscape of Tamera as a model for the recultivation of threatened regions in South Europe
Since August 2007 in the Peace Research Center Tamera (Reliquias) a permaculture water landscape is being built, as a model for the recultivation of landscapes which are under the threat of desertifation. Since this time there are now several natural looking water storage bassins. On their banks vegetables and fruit grow at any season. The water landscape attracts already now many different local plants and animals, and wild life is coming back. Many experts from Portugal and other countries see: Like this a nature paradise is developing where soon enough vegetables will grow to feed its inhabitants. Some find: 1000 of water landscapes like this throughout the whole Alentejo could save this region from the desertification, it is the realization of a regional model “Alentejo”.
Tamera is an international Peace Research Center with 160 coworkers and students, where, the knowledge for creating Peace Research Villages worldwide is being developed and taught.
