WORKSHOP: Building Sustainable Relationships -Working with Difference and Diversity

In Permaculture we aim to design and create systems that are holistic: ecologically, socially and spiritually complete.

This one day workshop comcentrates on how people can generate a future of cooperation and resilience. It draws on the lifeskills needed to work in partnership with others. It is the goal of this workshop to acknowledge difference and diversity and to work with these tensiions as a way to transform relationships.

Sabine Drückler and Chris Harkess, both experienced group workers and facilitators, will guide you through this day. » Read more
