Self-Sufficiency: How to get started

Self-Sufficiency: How to get Started
Under the weight of increasing prices - fuel, food, energy for example, many people are now considering what they can do to ease the burden. The answer is: Many things! From growing your own fruit and vegetables to sourcing alternative forms of energy, a more self-sufficient, healthy and affordable lifestyle is just a bit of interesting study away!

In 100 hours each, learn how to grow:
Fruit (in a temperate climate)
Fruit (in a warm climate)
Nuts (in a warm climate)
Grapes for Viticulture
Herbs (basic course)
Herbs (culture)
Herbs (medicinal)
Herbs (culinary)

Or, learn much more about a self-sufficient lifestyle:
Permaculture I, Permaculture II, Permaculture III, Permaculture IV
Alternative Energy, Carpentry, Healthy Buildings I, Healthy Buildings II, Mud Brick Construction

Any of the above can also be put together to create your own self-designed certificate or diploma. (Choices must be approved by a tutor to make sure the courses are a good 'fit').

Alternatively, enrol in one of our established qualifications:

Certificate in Alternative Farming
Certificate in Self-Sufficiency
