Spring Sustainable Living Course
Time & Location
About The Event
This ten week course is for people who think the Earth matters and want the knowledge, skills & experience to make a difference as sustainability change agents. The course is an experience of life in our little paradise at the top of the South Island in New Zealand. You will meet amazing thought leaders in sustainability and tour our area visiting the many exciting projects happening here from sustainable farms to eco-buildings & sustainable pubs!
Learning is through a combination of interactive classroom instruction, workshops, & site visits. You will visit a 30 year old intentional community, a famous local music & restaurant venue that embodies sustainable practices, hear the stories of conscious, local businesses and experience first hand how they work, be a part of our Harvest Festival and Living Wood Fair and much more.
Golden Bay has been identified by our spokesperson for Primary Industries as the perfect place to be THE sustainable region of New Zealand. In truth we have incredible people, resources, and projects already happening, but we are far from there yet. You will be part of and witness to an on-going adventure to make our region reach its full potential as an example to the country and the world. The Sustainable Living Course itself is part of that journey. Come and join us and be part of our history. In return we’ll mentor you to complete a personal project that offers you the opportunity to renew your passion for life and find your direction.
The course covers: permaculture design, eco-building, organic growing, healthy food preparation, personal well-being, sustainable business development, & community resilience.
March will mark our first ever course, but we have been teaching workshops and educating our community for 30 years and our instructors are top notch international experts most of whom live in our region.
