THE POWER OF SHARING KNOWLEDGE
Our programs consist of workshops-like formats in order to allow people to understand the significance of Natural Living/Creating/Building through sensing various materials used, how they are prepared, hands-on experience on indigenous techniques, observe and be part of real-life experimentations and projects. More than this, participants can connect with other like-minded people. And their staying will be completely immersed in the natural enviroment, allowing the experience to touch deeper sides of oneself.
The programs will take place in the very ancestral land located in Eastern region.
(Approx 1.5 hr from Accra Kokota airport).
Our workshop can last from 1 day (no over night stay) to 10 days (accomoations included).
Workshops are opend to everyone regardless of the profession they belong to, age or gender. Anyone interested can attend the course and learn about the simple and rich methods. To keep in mind that the workshops will not only be theoretical but especially practical. Since here, we belive that the best way to learn is by doing.
We encourage anybody to be part of this course as it integrates everyone in nature and shows a path to how buildings can be made and life could be lived by causing less harm to the environment. (It is very suitable for childrens and families)
