Self Sufficient Off-Grid Workshop
August 26 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join Strohplatz & Niels Gorisse for the popular online course “Self-sufficient Off-grid” which gives you an overview and basic knowledge about sustainable heat, energy, water, and toilets.
You will learn how to make your own decisions about:
– off-grid heat sources (including basic knowledge, stoves, rocketstoves, etc.)
– solar panels and electricity
– solar boilers
– rainwater collection and water purification
– compost toilet
– insulation materials
– helophyte filter
– why choose biobased construction
We not only discuss heat and electricity, we also look at water filtering, compost toilet, helophyte filters, insulation materials and more. Based on practical experience, they will share the advantages, disadvantages and impossibilities, and give clarity about various misunderstandings about off-grid living.
