Learn to Live Sustainably
We encourage everyone to learn the art of gardening. Not only is it a rich and rewarding life-skill which rewards both physically and spiritually, it is also a valuable tool for survival, if one is ever faced with the need to feed themselves. In addition to being an agricultural producer in Southern Arizona, Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage is also an educational center. We want to feed the world, but we know we can't do it alone. Avalon Gardens offers several ways to learn the skills and techniques that we practice here everyday. Learn more about workshops and internships below or visit our Earth Harmony Sustainability Seminars page. Certificates of Completion are given for seminars, internships, and workshops.
We periodically offer full-day and half-day workshops and courses on
- Organic Gardening and Permaculture Practices
- Food Forest Development
- Earth Harmony Homes
- Cal-Earth Domes
- Monolithic Domes
- Papercrete Brick Construction
- Utilizing Solar Power
