Upcoming Camps - we're excited to be offering our Building Resilience camps again in 2024
"I feel so blessed to have had the opportunities of doing the course and meeting everyone. It has been so inspirational in terms of growing my gardening skills and my people skills and I can hopefully use this to grow myself" Womens Camp 2023
"The most inspiring course I have ever been on" Womens Camp 22
"Great Teachers, great group, lovely venue, camping , fantasic food and great that there was gluten free" Building Resilience 23
"At Swn y Coed I learnt what it takes to be self-sufficient in food. I learnt the intergral skill of capturing the harvest with fermentation. We also had lots of fun. This course will set you up in how to live well off the land." Building Resilience 22
We're looking forward to our Building Resilience mixed camp coming up in August and our Women's camp in September. We are offering a mix of experience learning about growing food, compost making, gut health and mindfulness. There is a diverse range of hands-on learning, including green woodworking on the Saturday afternoon.
We are pleased to announce our dates for the 2024 camps. After our successful camps over the summer, we are looking forward to sharing our skills again next year. See the poster for more details.
It all started in 2019 when Peni and Melissa were approached by Extinction Rebellion folk asking us to help support the young people involved in XR to empower themselves through permaculture and land based activities. Our Building Resilience camps was the result. It was a great success and the young women asked to come back and learn more.
The framework uses permaculture principles and regenerative agriculture which are learnt through hands-on experience. There is also space for soothing the self through mindfulness, breathing and spending time being around the camp fire. All this allows participants to leave feeling nourished on all levels having deepened their connection to nature and each other.
Swn y Coed is a perfect balance between a thriving small-holding and a place for reflection in the bespoke roundhouse on the hill.
