Permaculture Design Courses WITH Refugees on Lesvos

An ongoing series of permaculture courses for refugees that trains individuals on how to design and implement regenerative land and settlement projects, with ongoing support in the establishment and management of initiated projects. 

During the pandemic we kept our operations minimal but we are glad to announce that we have slowly but steadily started new projects in the Garden of Friends. During our last gathering before the pandemic, nearly 100 people from all around the world gathered at our Garden of Friends, to learn, play and work together.

We are still doing what we do best, turning strangers into friends and we are still learning that when words are missing, nature and smiles work just as well.

Our educational and integration-focused permaculture project. We bring people together to care for the earth and create fertile ground for healing trauma, bridging divides and regenerating the natural environment.

More than simply a project, EcoHub is a concept, an approach and a philosophy – one that encompasses environmental stewardship, regenerative practices and symbiotic relationships.

Among other vocational training, we design and deliver seminars on olive harvesting and processing. 

Participants learn modern and traditional harvesting methods, practical use of equipment and olive processing techniques. 

A child-led learning process, which helps children grow while having loads of fun, reconnect with nature and learn to care for and protect the natural environment. 

Sporos runs internship and volunteer programs for people who wish to be educated in becoming regenerators while acquiring valuable and advanced skills.

Interns live on-site and care for the cultivations and orchards of Sporos, while learning permaculture design and organic farming techniques.
