HortaFCUL was founded in 2009.

What began as an idea dreamt up by a small group of students, has now become a space where members of the FCUL community – and anyone else – can come together to discuss new ideas, work together across disciplines, and try out the latest techniques in permaculture. One project emerging from this cross-pollination is a collaboration with the cE3c Centre for Research, known as Permalab — Living Permaculture Laboratory. This is a space where various interested parties work together on the development of systemically-designed projects that have a real-world application and a local identity, and are inspired by ecological principles.

Pay a visit to HortaFCUL and Permalab: two interlinked ecosystems for interdisciplinary and transformative research-innovation-action with partners in the community.

From a Seed to a Dish

Beginning as an idea dreamt up by a small group of students, Permalab – Living Permaculture Laboratory is a space where various interested parties work together on the development of systemically-designed projects that have a real-world application and a local identity, and are inspired by ecological principles. In this series of practical activities you will lend a hand to the natural cycles through which vegetables pass before they reach our tables: sowing, planting, harvesting, processing and preserving, as well as composting of waste. At the end, as the result of these actions, there will be a moment of celebration in the form of a community meal.
