We invite you to join us on one of our Education Programs.

Green Apprenticeship: 

4 week Permaculture Design and Training Course.

The Green Apprenticeship (GA) is a 4 week intensive course which combines hands-on training in sustainable development together with Permaculture Design Certification. The GA trains apprentices so that they can design, create and manage sustainable solutions for social, economical and ecological issues such as organic food supply, water harvesting and treatment, renewable energy, waste management, construction with natural materials, and more.

As part of the course, participants live in and help build the Ecological Campus. Additionally, apprentices experience countless opportunities to engage in community life at Kibbutz Lotan including weekly celebrations, and opportunities to tour in the beautiful Eilat region’s desert and tropical coral reef.
