subtle realms calling

Cullerne School of Gardening

Sat 11 May 2019 (7 Days)
The Cullerne Garden Team

Cullerne School Of Gardening will be a fun, hands-on week in the beautiful surroundings of Cullerne garden, the Findhorn Foundation’s main produce garden. We will offer a balance and integration of practical techniques and spiritual connection. We provide the opportunity to explore biodynamic gardening, permaculture, organic horticulture, and food production methods. Get ready for a week of practising conscious gardening skills and learning new ones in the setting of the Findhorn Foundation, a unique spiritual community. Our emphasis will be on co-creation with the intelligence of Nature, one of the core principles this community has been practising for more than 50 years. No gardening experience is needed, but we also welcome any experience and insights you bring.

Practical modules will include:
