Courses

At the Panya Project we regularly host a multitude of different courses. Including Courses on: Natural Building, Permadculture Design, Organic Gardening, and a whole array of other types of courses and workshops.
We aim to create an inspiring community atmosphere empowering both teachers and students alike to be the positive change
we wish to see in the world.

 

Natural Building Courses

Natural building utilizes minimally processed, nontoxic materials and systems used appropriately for the climate, site and use. Natural Building design incorporates primarily natural materials rather than high embodied energy, processed commercial materials, with a focus on getting these natural materials from as local a source as possible–ideally, from the building site itself. At Panya we work with natural earth bricks and have built our main Sala, dormitories, compost toilets and long term resident’s premises with this technique. 

Our courses are aimed at people who want to acquire natural building knowledge & skills that can subsequently used in various situations such as building your own house or working with others on a natural building project. Upcoming courses will be posted soon to our website. 

Permaculture Design Course
