Learners ...

 

Can opt to undertake just the first year or both years of the apprenticeship and it is acceptable to take a gap between the first and second years. The face to face programme suits folk who wish to participate in a personal community of learning.

The circle discussions that accompany the lectures offer a sharing of experiments and the consequential discoveries are very enriching to all. During the workshops, there is time to engage directly with the teachers for personal tutoring as required. 

Participants may subscribe to the online platform and also take advantage of the materials presented here.

 

 

 

 

 

The materials presented online are a comprehensive selection of filmed face to face lectures, presentations and talks, specifically designed films for the online community, text files in word, pdf and epub formats and audio files of all the text. We also include online forum engagement as part of the course work along with live webinars.

The gardens ...

 

are home to approximately 300 different plant species and facilitates experiencing the plants energetically and directly. This enables the gathering of material to for food and medicine. The importance of this connection cannot be overstated as the true apprenticeship model means direct experiential practices. The convenience of having this beautiful garden surrounding the teaching area is very valuable.
