Title Description County Country
RegenAG UK (RAUK)

RegenAG UK (RAUK) is a network/training organisation which promotes Regenerative Agriculture by connecting the world's leading pioneers with farmers and smallholders in the UK via short courses, seminars and workshops, and by facilitating peer-peer learning and practitioner lead experimentation and exploration.  We work with international and UK trainers, valuing expertise and experience wherever we find it and drawing on our trainers' skills and knowledge to help develop local practice.

RAUK was initiated by Eliza Pearson, who after attending one of Darren Doherty's Regenerative Agriculture courses in Australia, convened the first courses in the UK, with Aranya's support. At an international level Darren convened further courses with Kirk Gadzia, and Joel Salatin, whilst Aranya and Natasha took on the UK co-ordination, and when Darren then moved on to focus on his Regrarian® platform they continued with a course with Eugenio Gras, another member of the original RegenAG (International) hub training team.
Since then Aranya has stepped back to focus on his Permaculture teaching and mentoring, with Natasha taking the lead, this fitting very well with her background and main goals.  During this time we have been developing stronger connections within the UK, and also making use of trainers who are based closer to home - whilst still tapping into the international network.

Schumacher College

About the College

 

People from all over the world, of all ages and backgrounds, have been informed, inspired and encouraged to act, by our 25 years of transformative courses for sustainable living.

about schumacher collegeSchumacher College has an enviable reputation for cutting-edge learning. Our work is to inspire, challenge and question ourselves as co-inhabitants of the world, to ask the questions we all struggle to find answers to and to find sound knowledge, intuition and wonder in our search for solutions.

We bring together the leading thinkers, activists and practitioners internationally, to deliver a unique brand of small group learning experiences. This learning takes place in the classroom, the gardens, the kitchen – it is part of everything we do.

Here you will discover things about yourself, make deep friendships with students from around the world, and, like many alumni, start a lifelong connection with the College.

With a focus on interactive, experiential and participatory learning, we offer the practical skills and strategic thinking required to face the ecological, economic and social challenges of the 21st Century.

It is precisely at this time of global upheaval that we want you to come to the College to share with us the ways in which you are moved to live and act differently.

Schumacher College is a very special place. As we try and figure out what on earth we’re going to do with this unraveling planet, it’s become a thinktank for hope, a battery for positive vision!Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org

Our unique soap recipes are designed by Natasha who is a Michelin trained chef who enjoys creating delightful ,unexpected combinations to bring something exclusive to your home.
We run a monthly permaculture meetup group for anyone interested in gardening, outdoor community, permaculture, anyone who is wanting to learn and share knowledge about gardening topics.
We are currently developing learning resources and work experience programs , where we have an experienced accredited permaculture teacher on site
We are determined that it would be a haven of work and development opportunity for the homeless. Likewise, others with rehabilitation, disability and other support needs would be high on the agenda to work for and within the scheme. The true inspiration within this project is that it fulfils more than just a vision of future potential. By involving people who have very real needs today, it also encapsulates a genuine chance to change lives and build a community.
The bigger picture is to explore, develop and create a practical environment where this exciting idea can be used to determine a better today and brighter tomorrow.
