UK Adventure Begins Tour of Europe

Robin’s seven country ‘Dynamic Groups’ course tour began in the UK at The Sustainability Centre in Hampshire in mid May.

Entrance to the Children’s Garden

The centre is an educational trust and offers facilities and experiences for adult workshops, school tours and a diversity of learning opportunities, volunteering and ways to be involved.

Natural burial ground in the woodlands

Half the property is a natural burial ground where people are laid to rest in a simple earth friendly way. Such a beautiful thing to witness.

The centre is also home to a delicious vegetarian cafe and Permanent Publication, a book publisher and producer of the UK Permaculture Magazine, a very quality and informative publication. Here’s a link to the centre.

There were many highlights from the Dynamic Groups course, one being a large and very colourful, facilitated group design painting. A quick simple process that created a stir of excitement and satisfaction.

We managed to gather from the participants and the Centre some paint, puppets, juggling balls, dress ups and scarves, a small library and even some clay dug from the site.
