Learning by doing
O.U.R. offers programs designed for students of all ages to strengthen learning around sustainability with an integrated systems approach. The concept of a holistic approach to ecology aims to demonstrate the integrated relationships between the provision of food, fibre, and energy for human needs in an environmentally sustainable way.
Students have the opportunity to experience cob construction, animal husbandry, gardening and harvesting, cooking as well as understanding the theoretical principles behind this unique and worldwide approach to the global challenge of climate change.
