The word “guilda” (Portuguese for guild) refers to a group of people, plants, animals or microorganisms with related interests and goals that form for mutual benefit and support. GUILDA was established with the same foundation of cooperation and with the vision of resilience and abundance for all living beings.
Permaculture is one of the most active and effective movements empowering individuals, communities, businesses and policy-makers to regenerate the Earth, build resilience and live sustainably.
We use ecology and whole systems design as the basis for for designing sustainable and resilient human ecosystems, which mimic the patterns, processes and behaviours found in nature and generate abundance for people and all other living creatures.
A Permaculture Design offers a whole system approach, meaning that the site will function as whole, because all elements are placed stategically in relationship to each other, which optimizes mutual benefit and functionality. This is intimately connected to the overall capacity of the landscape to sustain itself and be resilient over time.
We have been part of the permaculture movement for over two decades; teaching, designing, consulting and researching in different parts of the world. We have lived and worked side by side with some of the world’s most experienced permaculture designers and practitioners as well as designed and implemented more than 70 permaculture systems of different scales and contexts.
