Aprovecho Workshops

About Aprovecho’s Workshops

Apart from our internationally-recognized summer residential programs in Permaculture and Sustainable Shelter Series, Aprovecho also hosts guest instructors to teach workshops aligned with our mission and vision. These workshops develop environmental career skills and homesteading skills, while helping students and teachers cultivate social networks specific to sustainability. We aim to give people, from beginners to advanced practitioners, the expert knowledge and guided practice they need to develop or advance skills. Workshop formats vary depending on subject, teacher, and student needs.
