In next weekend after Easter, in 13, 14, 15 (friday, saturday and sunday) there will occur the portuguese Green Gathering, near Tábua, one hour from the main city of Coimbra.
The meeting is entirely non-formal, based on a communal and ecological basis, with volunteering, common tasks and workshops about natural practices, self-sufficiency, community and even some spiritual ones. The common kitchen has vegetarian food and there are morning meetings for delivering everyone's tasks.
The participants stay in camping tents, in the beautiful forest place of the small-holding of Quinta da Cabeça do Mato. This meeting is of importance in a time where in the world we have these discussion about self-sufficiency, energy solutions, and where each of us has a role in giving his contribution to the planet.
