Education

A society that doesn't know where its food comes from is a society without culture, and humanity without culture will perish." - Masanobu Fukuoka

EDUCATION AT SOLITUDE

Where does our food come from? Who grows it? How is it grown, processed, packed, stored or transported? For the most part we don’t know. We have lost this relationship with where our food comes from, which is the foundation of our existence. Due to Industrialisation and our relentless pursuit of economic gain we do not recognise that the well-being of the earth IS our own well-being. At Solitude we invite you to walk with us on a road back to nature and reclaim your birthright to eat well, to be healthy and discover a deeper meaning to life.

Simply by eating local food, we’re able to undermine the vast industrialisation that is eroding the well-being of our planet. Through our permaculture workshops, farm tours, weekly mini-workshops and our farm-to-plate cafe we help people form a relationship with food that grows around us. This relationship is our nutritional cultural identity. Eating local food is an act of love to our planet and possibly the most profound action we can take towards changing our present crisis.

3-Day Intensive Permaculture Weekend Workshop

Join us on a road back to nature with this intensive and hands-on workshop that will empower you to start growing your own food and gain insight into knowing where your food comes from. Explore the principles of permaculture; mulching, rotations, intercropping, understand the steps to create a food forest, start a nursery, make your own soap and recycle your waste water, learn about seed saving and lots more. This workshop puts together an authentic and holistic approach to help you reconnect with Mother Earth and start your project today!

Weekly Mini-Workshops

Four different workshops; four different approaches; single point agenda: to rekindle our relationship with Mother Nature through local food. Through these workshops we empower you to grow your own food, cook nourishing meals with native plants, create ‘take-home’ urban gardens, and prepare organic soap to enable waste water recycling.

Vegan cooking
with edible weeds

Weeds are plants that fed generations before us until they faded in relevance with the advent of modern agriculture. In this workshop we help you reconnect with your cultural identity by creating delicious recipes from these lesser known species and reintroducing nutritional abundance and medicinal values in your daily meals. This workshop reinstills the maxim “Food is Medicine”.
