Sustainable Living Workshop
Our 2-week sustainable living workshop provides you with the 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 tailored to wherever you are in your sustainable living journey, whether you're taking your first steps or if you're looking to go fully off-grid. We'll help you plan your journey, so it's at the speed that works best for you. You'll leave the workshop with a living plan to guide you along the way. And after the workshop is finished we are always on-hand with additional help and advice.
If two weeks is too much we offer one-day and 3-day weekend workshops covering specific sustainable living subjects. Go to On-Line Bookings to find a workshop that works for you.
For each day of the 2-week sustainable living workshop 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.
