WHAT IS GREEN CAMP?
Green Camp is an opportunity to reconnect, heal and rebuild a strong symbiotic relationship with nature, our own nature and our fellow man. Our team is using the frame-work of Gaia Education's Eco-village Design Curriculum (www.GaiaEducation.org) to organise workshops, training and holistic treatments to certify the skills and accomplishments of attendees of the Camp in a UN recognised ecological design diploma. The first UK Green Camp is being co-developed at Arundel Forest Garden outside Arundel Castle thanks to Their Graces The Duke and Duchess of Norfolk.

Our first camps will take place on the first two weekends of July and then on Weekends thereafter as decided by the Community Forum in charge of The Camp, see below..
Attendees of Green Camp earn experience points by completing the various courses we offer that cover each of the modules of the Eco-village Design Curriculum, and more. By completing the various courses, the rite of passage of this community, one gains further access to The Camp and The Green Assets that we are all establishing together as we work through this practical curriculum. The different modules of the course are offered at different times dependant on the seasons.
THE COMMUNITY PARTICIPATORY FORUM
