"This course is about new ways for urban people to re-connect with the land – and how to make it happen. Ways that are part-time, but long-term. Ways that involve an exchange of value, not just paying money. Ways to share knowledge, land, and equipment in new ways. Ways based on historical links between town and country – but reinvented in an age of networks and social innovation.
Our focus will be practical, not theoretical. We will share stories of new models that seem to be working: social farming; care farming; WWOOFING; civic ecology’ ecological regeneration camps; networked beer and bread production; community land sharing; the maker movement, and all things peer-to-peer."
