Eco Building Course in Croatia

We specially crafted this eco building course to enable you to learn about eco building and tiny houses at our beautiful Permaculture farm and eco retreat camp on the Croatian island Brac.

It combines hands-on building experience, lectures and design exercises to help you create your own eco building: to upgrade an existing structure or to start from scratch.

Be inspired by a multitude of techniques and projects you will see around the Gea Viva site, delve deeply into eco living while you are here and enjoy a supportive, joyful learning environment!

This course is taught by Sabine Engelhardt who is an award-winning architect, joiner and geomancer and the initiator of Gea Viva project. With friends and volunteers she has built most structures on site and taught design part-time at Preston University.

The course will run every day from 9.00 - 13.00 and on four evenings from 18.00 - 19.30 hrs, with short interim breaks as required. The long lunch breaks allow a rest or time to go swimming during the hot hours of the day. A range of accommodation is available on site or you can bring your tent.
