This 7 day course explores concepts of ecological design applied specifically to the productive landscape. We explain our process for designing ecosystems that include a bounty of nourishing foods, beautiful spaces and enriched bio-diversity.
The course balances theory with hands on practical activity, design exercises and hikes into the beautiful surrounding countryside of the Central Balkan mountain range.
Throughout the course you'll be learning how to create and design, and we encourage our guests to bring their own plans or future projects into the course and to incorporate what we cover into a plan that can be implemented in the future.
This course is perfect for anyone wishing to begin a new project or wanting to get started in ecological design. What we cover during the course can be easily applied to existing projects. You will learn to approach design from a thoughtful, intellectual perspective, thereby minimizing maintenance and reducing redundancy, allowing yourself to focus on the most enjoyable parts of growing your landscapes.
So whether you are new to growing or a seasoned veteran, we are sure you will enjoy this unique approach
