Sustainable Living Workshop

Our 2-week sustainability workshop provide 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 building 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 Spain.
 
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
  • Sustainable shelters
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.
