1. Course overview

What does it mean to live in an eco-community? How can I reduce my impact on the environment? If these questions mean something to you, come and join us for one week full of exciting learnings about all different aspects of sustainable living in our thriving educational project in the South of Spain.

You will be part of our community of volunteers and have the opportunity to experiment what does it mean to live sustainably in an off-grid village while learning different tools that make living together more meaningful.

The topics covered include:

  • Organic gardening
  • Eco-construction
  • Making natural products
  • Appropriate technologies
  • Water treatment
  • Wild plants and reforestation
  • Group facilitation
  • Transition movement
