What´s On

Low Impact Building Training

17th – 23rd February 2020

This is a unique chance to help finish a new low-impact building, and to learn from a project with 26 years’ experience of low-impact, off-grid construction with volunteer groups.

On this programme, you can learn about:

  • Design, specification and construction of low-impact, off-grid and timber buildings.
  • Almost everything you’d want to know about off-grid services: on site we have 5 types of compost loo, three electrical systems and five wood-fired heating systems.
  • How to do construction with integrated teams of professionals and volunteers.
  • Using and preserving your own timber, processed and in the round: including planking and seasoning on site.
  • Sustainable forestry, climate change adaptation and more.

Deep Adaptation: a spiritual exploration

Deep Adaptation is the term used by Jem Bendell to invite us to face the radical changes climate change will bring within the next decade. This weekend retreat will focus on the spiritual aspects: seeking purpose, healing, mutual care from a bigger perspective.
