2013 Courses!

Most of the Autumn Courses are pay what you can plus 15-20€ per day ( extra food and lodge)

Sunseed welcomed several courses in 2012, including courses on Solar cooking and solar cookers, Stove making, Plastering, Photovoltaics, making Pedal-Powered electricity generators, DIY Solar Hot Water Panels and a very special 7-day residential course on personal and social transformation called Seeding Change. A complete list of courses we will welcome for all 2013 are still to be fully-determined, but we do know that we’re hosting winter courses here at Sunseed. On January 11-13th, we worked with Bernhard Hartl to learn about pruning fruit trees and throughout February and early March we will be taking up two courses on designing and building gray-water treatment systems! In March and April we are hosting courses about designing and installing Solar Panels, as well as building gasifying cookers and a course on how to live more simply.
