Introduction to Sustainable Living 10 & 11th of July 2010

WHO THE COURSE IS FOR

This course will be of interest to anyone who has – or intends to have – land, upon which they want to live a more sustainable, low-impact, organic life style. It has evolved from the comments and experiences of many of our visitors – as well as ourselves – who would liked to have had access to a course of this nature when first moving onto their land, offering them inspiration and practical advice, therefore avoiding costly mistakes. Students of architecture, agriculture or landscape design could also be interested in attending, to view their subject from a different perspective. Anybody considering a longer, or more intensive course, could benefit from experiencing this weekend of exciting, varied workshops, before making a decision. These weekends are also well-suited for people with limited time available – maybe you are here on a property viewing visit, having to work weekdays, or just want to make more of your holiday. Should you wish to stay in this area a while longer, we can assist with accommodation arrangements. Contact us for details. Children are welcome to attend – again, contact us to make arrangements. Excellent vegetarian meals are included in the course price, from Friday night to Sunday afternoon. Saturday night is Pizza Night, where you can either participate in creating and baking pizzas in our traditional oven, or just spectate with a glass of wine, before moving on to absorb the special night-time atmosphere in the tipi, where you can enjoy listening to – or having a go at – African drumming or guitar playing. Musicians welcome! The price for the course is for per person, camping. We have limited dormitory accommodation available. Please indicate your requests when booking. COURSE CONTENT Over the two days, there will be a balanced delivery of theoretical and practical sessions.
