Sustainable Living Workshop
Our 2-week sustainability workshop provides you with tools and ideas to live in greater harmony with the natural world - from sustainable shelters to rainwater collection, solar & wind energy, composting & soil management, food production, waste management, nutrition, and health. They are the perfect follow-on from our 2-Week Tiny House Build workshop.
Our workshops are different because we have no fixed workshop centre, so we travel to where people want to learn. Please contact us if you'd like a workshop close to where you live in France, UK or Mallorca.
For each day of the 2-week sustainable living intensive program you'll 'learn-by-doing':
Collecting, filtering and distributing rainwater for drinking, washing, and irrigation
Building and installing a solar hot water system
Composting, waste, and biochar
Nutrition and the environmental impact of food
Introduction to permaculture
Building and maintaining a compost toilet, and handling humanure
Specifying and assembling solar and wind electricity generators
Building a rocket wood-burner for efficient heating, hot water and cooking
You'll find the complete two-week program HERE.
The emphasis in our workshops is learning the practical steps you can take to create or improve your own sustainable environment and sustainable lifestyle.
We also look at the softer side of sustainable living, with discussions on economic growth, the circular economy, happiness, creativity, meaning and community.
The workshop is mainly conducted in English. You can find out more about our team HERE.
The price of our 2-week workshop is €550, which covers full participation in the 2-week program, all course tools & materials and lunch each day.
