One could estimate the number of Permaculture projects to be approximately between 1000 to 4000, assuming a few dozen projects per country (rough estimation). The number is rapidly growing in recent years. (For instance, the number of registered projects in the UK is more than 115.[https://www.permaculture.org.uk/land] In Portugal, 39 projects are mapped by [http://redeconvergir.net/iniciativas#?lat=38.938&lng=-8.646&types=type_001_permaculture Rede Convergir])
