Are you going to build a tiny house, would you like to have a free shower for three quarters of the year, ecologicly (re)build your house or place in an ecovillage, or just live more sustainable and climate aware? Then this (currently Dutch spoken) course is for you.Reserve a place
In this course Self-sufficient off-grid you learn all basic concepts behind ecological insulation, solar collectors, rainwater harvesting, water filtering, constructed wetlands, compost toilets, solar panels and more. Sustainable alternatives are given for the basic needs for warmth, energy, water, toilet - you will learn the how and why.
Especially for (future) tiny house residents, all examples in this course are targeted at regular tiny house dimensions. After this course you've made a huge step forwards in the many choices that you have to make on the earea of warmth, water, shouwering, toilet drain etc. This course is also suitable if you want to make your home more sustainable, or if you want to create a new house as sustainable and energy neutral as possible.
To set the subjects into a sustainable context, the introduction will discuss some permaculture and climate change principles. To add more context, you can subscribe to the facebook group after the lesson. This group is created because at the end of the course there is often the need to stay in contact which each other, to exchange practical experiences and new developments. Who knows we will in the future organise mini excursions to interesting places too.
As you said yourself, the information on this subject is not very accessible and it requires a lot of study(time) to grasp all aspects of selfsufficiency. I'm often bored during a course, but this time that was absolutely not the case.
After this course you have saved months of research and you will know enough basic knowledge to choose ecological insulation, buy or install a solar tube system, build or buy a stand-alone solar panel system, know the basic terms of a wet land system, know the how and why of a composting toilet and building one, and to decide how to arrange the water storage and filtering system. You will get the right sustainable basic tools to understand all sorts of off-grid systems and how to evaluate the (non)sense of "new" sustainable technology. Some permaculture concepts will help to do this.
