Each year we invite special guest tutors to share their expertise, and 2017 sees the return of Albert Bates, the founder of the Ecovillage Training Center at The Farm in Tennessee, past president of Global Ecovillage Network and author of 16 books on ecology and the future and Aranya, leading UK Permaculture teacher and designer and author of Permaculture Design: A Step-by-Step Guide. Aranya will be coming to us online; he hosted one of last years most popular, inspiring and interactive sessions on design.
The setting for this immersive course is Cloughjordan Ecovillage, one of Ireland’s leading examples of an ecosystem of innovation. it includes over 50 eco-homes, community woodlands, renewable energy production, a wood-fired bakery, research gardens and a community farm.
