Dear Doighouse Guests, Learners and Volunteers

The health and well being of all our friends, learners, volunteers and guests at theDoighouse Learning Centre is always our top priority. Please note that face masks are now mandatory for all Earthship tours and visitors. Please remember to bring yours.

To allow for social distancing, no more than four members of the public will be allowed in theDoighouse Earthship at one time, so please be prepared for a lineup. Couples or groups from the same “bubble” may enter as one person.

Our COVID-19 procedures are in place, and we’re looking forward to welcoming gardeners back to participate in our garden classes.  To allow for social distancing in the gardens, no more than fifteen guests will be allowed in theDoighouse gardens at any one time. 

Thanks to everyone for a calm and rational return to the “new normal.”

All the best,
Susan, Tony, Bentley and Mabel
