5 day Off-grid Homesteading experience



A chance to immerse yourself in a truly natural lifestyle

Off-Grid Homesteading - 5 Day Experience

This course explores how to live on the land in a way that supports the ecology and resources of our planet. This involves generating energy and electricity from renewables. It means working with the land to create patterns of productivity through which you can harvest food, craft, textiles and resources that can support you, whilst building ecological health and diversity.

It means understanding our role in the water and soil networks and contributing to them positively. It means integrating with the local community to build networks of support and resilience. It is all about exploring a more balanced and conscious relationship with our natural world.
