We choose venues for our courses (both as hosts & for site visits) that have ecological sustainability amongst their core visions. Hosting our courses brings them in extra income, which can make a big difference for venues & projects living in a low impact way. In turn, course participants benefit from spending time with ecologically-minded activists & by seeing permaculture principles in action.
We also know from experience, that by running courses in such pioneering places, they will attract more support in turn in the form of return working visits by former course participants & their friends. If you have any suggestions for suitable course venues, please get in touch!
