An introduction to the community at Schumacher College

Come and join the Schumacher College sustainable community in the most beautiful time of year associated with personal renewal and development. As a participant of this week, you will deepen your connection with nature and become an active and engaging community member. You will be introduced to the principles and activities for which Schumacher College is renowned for. This week will allow you to press your "re-set button" and feel nourished and held for the week. You may wish to participate in all of the sessions or take a break in the library and beautiful gardens.
