Communities in Spain
PLACE: Almería, Spain.
Started in 1986, this is a community-led non-formal educational centre for the transition towards sustainability. The Volunteer programme was set up in earnest and volunteers came from different countries. Sunseed has gradually evolved into an experiential education centre with visitors working to support the ongoing tasks of Sunseed whilst simultaneously learning how to live in a low impact way, and into collaboration with other organisations, including universities and schools. Many people come to Sunseed to build skills and to find inspiration. In the last few years we have put on courses so that people can come for a short visit and learn something specific; permaculture and bio-construction have been popular courses. Research volunteers continue to make valuable contributions to low-tech developments.
