Dear Friends,

        Greetings from Brazil!  This is just to inform you that
Permaculture is
well-established here since Bill Mollison`s first course here in 1992. 
At the present moment there are  seven  organized groupssome already
becoming "Institutes", others still informal but active, each in one of
the major ecosystems of Brazil.  This is without counting the  600 or so
who have already done Basic Design Courses here with me ( and
colleagues) and  Mrcio Armando, Braslia. 

        I would like to point out that  no one person or organization
represents Brazilian permaculture.  We work as an integrated network
here, cooperating  among the different groups.  If you would like
information  or would like to visit, you should contact one of the
