Would you like to experience workshops in ecology? We offer a wide range of experiences for all ages – children, families, groups and singles. Come and learn to make seed balls, create mud bricks, and learn permaculture methods, earth building techniques and so much more. You are also welcome to visit the ‘Bustan’ neighborhood, which serves as the ecological campus for our workshops and permaculture training. Students and volunteers live in the ‘Bustan’ in domes made of earth, pick vegetables for their salad from the garden, cook in solar ovens and use the leftover scraps to fill the compost. The ‘Bustan’, demonstrates how we can make less impact on the planet.
