Syntropic farming – Introduction Lecture 

July 16-17, 2024

Language: English

With farmer and teacher Felipe Amato 

These two days will provide an introduction and dive into the system of syntropic farming, and exiting new method of agroforestry which has been developed by Ernst Götsch in Brazil. This system has spread around the world and is now traveling to Europe, and a few pioneering sites are planting according to its principles. Come and be part of the movement! The beautiful short film “Life in Syntropy” has spread the message and gives a great overview of the method. You will find the link below!


You can join only for the Lecture with Felipe or stay for the full time, in the second day we will tour the gardens at Mundekulla with gardener Elin Nordenberg. During the tour Felipe will be giving his perspectives on our plot which attempts to implement syntropic farming, planted last year. He will also answer questions and offer some ideas on the plants which we can include in our systems here in the north.


Mundekulla is a beautiful and peaceful location in the countryside of Småland, just outside of Emmaboda. If you have any questions on how to get here, please reach out!

Syntropic Farming

Syntropic Farming is an innovative approach to regenerative agriculture which allows us to create dynamic, successional, and economically viable ecosystems that restore degraded soil biodiversity. By understanding and respecting nature’s complex system, Syntropic Farming imitates the natural regeneration of forests and provides a harmonious integration of our food production systems.


Syntropic Agriculture is constituted by a theoretical and practical setting in which the natural processes are translated into farming interventions in their form, function, and dynamics. Thus we can talk about regeneration by use, since the establishment of highly productive agricultural areas, which tend to be independent of inputs and irrigation, results in the provision of ecosystem services, with special emphasis on soil formation, regulation of microclimate and the favoring of water cycles. That way, agriculture is synced with the regeneration of ecosystems.

Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Felipe has a BA in Philosophy from PUC-SP. An organic farmer since 2007, in 2010 he met the Swiss producer and researcher Ernst Götsch, and since then has participated in several courses and internships with him at his farm in southern Bahia, at Fazenda da Toca in São Paulo state, and at São Sebastião farm in Rio de Janeiro.


Between 2012 and 2014 he was an instructor of courses and coordinator of the agroecology sector of the Escola da Terra, a free school based in the municipality of Pedro de Toledo - SP, which aims to disseminate ecological and sustainable techniques.


Since 2013 he provides technical assistance services to agroecological producers and other properties with or without commercial purposes, teaches courses and trainings in agroforestry / syntropic agriculture, and conducts its own production on his farm, located in the municipality of Mogi das Cruzes - SP, Brazil.


In 2015 had his first contact with European climates and ecosystems, and since then he has been dedicated to applying the principles of syntropic agriculture also in temperate and Mediterranean contexts, with projects under development in Portugal, Spain, France, Germany and Ireland.
