One of our main focuses is to share the knowledge we acquire so that others may also be able to implement ecological and environmentally friendly techniques in their own lives.

On this page you will find a list of potential seminars, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.


Our courses are located in Krishna Valley, Somogyvámos. The course instructors are volunteers who live in the Krishna Valley community.

Course participation fees include:

  • Krishna Valley entrance fee which grants access to all of the interest points in the community (when courses take place on the property).
  • Day long courses include a vegetarian lunch. (See detailed description of each course.)
  • Some of the courses include preparing unique items for personal use (such as natural cosmetics and dairy products) that can be taken home at the end of the course. (See detailed description of each course.)
