In all our programs, practical skills are developed through hands-on work in our environmental education center, organic garden, and alternative/natural building projects, and complemented by classroom sessions in such topics as ecological design, permaculture, gardening theory, and community building. Visit our You Tube channel to find out more.
Participants are also interwoven into the daily life of our kibbutz, an intentional cooperative community based on the principles of liberal, egalitarian Judaism. Click here to read more about the kibbutz.
Students also have the opportunity to live what they learn on a day-to-day basis by staying in the GA EcoCampus – a prototype neighborhood for sustainable living. Click here for more information.
Additionally, participants come from all over the world to be with like-minded individuals and create life-long connections. They leave the course brimming with information, motivation, confidence and support, and become part of the larger community of those who value ecological living.
Upon successful completion of the course work, participants will receive a Permaculture Design Course Certificate according to International Permaculture standards, as well as an Eco-village Design certificate, in accordance with Gaia Education Curriculum.
Graduates of the Green Apprenticeship integrate the skills they learn into Masters and PhD degrees in ecological subjects and as formal and informal educators. Other professional endeavors include: establishing and directing environmental NGO’s, creating a permaculture education farm, entrepreneurial efforts in the organic food industry and landscape architecture, becoming experts in natural building and carpentry, doing agricultural work in farms all over the world, and much more.
