The schedule for the 4 (plus 1 with Michael Mobbs) week online sessions, every Thursday from 6-7.30pm are as follows. You'll learn from experienced local natural building, planning, PassiveHaus, DIY solar and permaculture design professionals who'll inspire you towards your journey to greater physical and material self-sufficiency.

The third; intro to off-grid solar and batteries, a guide for transitioning to self-sufficient power. The fourth; the fundamentals of building sensibly, using passive solar principles. At the last special Michael Mobbs event, he'll cover key data to consider, along with how to go about getting approvals and more. For FULL DETAILS - SEE HERE.
These workshop series are perfect for those who want to follow the current trend of not buying into a big mortgage. In these 4 weeks, you'll put your ideas down on paper and work on your own designs of your dream environment. You might even rethink our whole plan as you develop through workshopping your ideas with the professionals.
You don't need previous experience, nor a background in any of the subject areas. Just an open mind and a willingness to go on a journey with a community that helps each other realise their dreams and problem solves along the way. You'll leave this event with a stronger vision, get access to resources provided each week and some practical lists and steps to take with you.
