We are often looking for new facilitators to run workshops – if you have skills and knowledge to share and experience in running workshops, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are new to running workshops, you might like to start out by offering a short workshop at our Thursday afternoon talk series for volunteers and staff.
About the Sustainable Living Workshop Program
The workshops we offer in our workshop program cover a range of sustainable living topics – this may include topics relating to any or all of the permaculture ethics of ‘Care of the Earth’ ‘Care of the People’ and ‘Fair Share’. Topics may include organic gardening, growing and preparing bush foods, keeping animals, craft using natural materials, Non-Violent Communication, alternative economics and much more!
There are three teaching spaces available to facilitators – the teaching space under the Education Building, the old teaching space outside the tool shed and the kitchen area. The kitchen area is generally used for craft and food preparation workshops.
Our workshops are generally run on Saturdays, but other days are also possible. The timing is usually a 3 hour or 6 hour workshop. The 3 hour workshops generally run from 9am-12pm or 1-4pm, and the 6 hour ones run from 9-4 with a one hour lunch break. You may wish to run 2 separate but connected workshops with one being held in the morning and one in the afternoon.
