We run a number of courses and training programs. Here’s a selection of recent courses:
True Cost Accounting Workshop – 10 and 11 March 2017
This special workshop was conducted together with a member of the Henley Business School. Participants were given the opportunity to take an analytical investigatory look at the true costs of various farming practices. The main comparisons being between resource-based ethical farming practices, and those that are focused purely on financial profit, looking at only direct costs while excluding environmental and social costs.

The Grassroots Permaculture Course was jointly organized by a member of the local community and Rosendal Permaculture Centre.
