All are welcome to join us in creating a caring and inclusive learning space here on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
The purpose of the Learning Centre is to provide inclusive, multi-generational environmental education.
a.‘about the environment’ (e.g. Biology) b.‘for the environment’ (e.g. Activism) and
c.‘through the environment’ (e.g. Empowerment; team work, team building, confidence building and leadership)
The earthship is all about exploring a low impact lifestyle, off grid living in an energy efficiency dwelling built from recycled materials.
One that meets local, provincial and national building and energy codes, built to last for (at least) 100 years.
We bring together professionals, enthusiasts and the general public to enjoy hands-on learning by hosting seasonal eco-camps, gardening workshops and (occasionally) fireside chats. We also provide a cultural exchange for international and local volunteers.
It is love for the planet, people and sharing of abundance that makes this project come alive.
For individual or small group tours, we can customize an itinerary to emphasize your interests. If you have a special request, send us a message, and we will be sure to get back to you soon.
