Sustainable soil management learning

10/12/2019
Lingua: EN

Education on the spot, that's how you can explain best what you experience during the courses on soilmanagement and designing in natural circles at the educational farm Aarde-Werk de Stegge in Winterswijk, Netherlands!

 

Course 1: ‘Design in Natural Cycles’ 

Language: English

Duration: 1 or 2 weeks

Certificate: basic certificate after 1 week / advanced certificate after 2 weeks

In this course you learn to think and act based on circular systems. You learn to work with design principles for a sustainable system, in which everything has multiple functions and waste is non-existent. You learn how to observe these principles in nature and find ways to put these natural laws into daily human practice. Instead of ‘end of pipe’ solutions, you will design cyclic solutions, in the smallest possible action range.

Program

  • Monday to Friday: each day 2 dayparts course with variation between theory and practice both inside and outside 
  • aturday: excursion to inspiring location in the area
