Starting your own Regenerative Agroforestry Project?
We are super proud and excited to hosting this workshop at the farm. This is a very important part of our mission, to being a facilitator & learning-hub to provide tools & knowledge for your regenerative journey. We are also on our journey to learn everything we need to know about Regenerative Agroforestry to come up with a design for the farm, and want to share our path with you!
The Regenerative Agroforestry Workshop is created for those wanting to grow abundant agroforestry systems and want to learn the basics and tools to get started. With the stunning context of the northeastern Spanish Mediterranean farmland you will be guided through the basics of Regenerative Agroforestry and how to design & implement a system that works for your context, and do real work on the land.
Though we’ll cover intermediate and advanced topics you don’t need any prior knowledge or experience to join the course. All of the information throughout the day is easily accessible to beginners and you’ll have close guidance along the way.
Outdoor activities will take place, rain or shine, so come prepared for a full immersion experience.
Taught by Oliver Goshey
We have been inspired by Oliver Goshey since the beginning of our journey with 5 seasons of interviews with leaders and rebels to regenerate, and his driven personality to make the world a better place has really touched us. This makes it extra special for us to host this course for you!
Oliver is a designer, educator, and consultant for regenerative social and land based projects. After studying as a marine engineer and working mostly in blue collar trades such as commercial shipping, trail building, construction, and farming, across the world, Oliver has built a unique and wide perspective implementing projects and managing complex systems as a practitioner on the ground.
Struggling to justify his participation in destructive and extractive industries, Oliver quickly shifted his focus to land stewardship and rebuilding community connections. Since then he’s applied his unique experiences from 15 years of travel to helping clients and organizations to design and build natural healthy homes, develop businesses for social equity, and restore healthy native landscapes.
Oliver is also host of the 'Regenerative Skills' podcast, which is Oliver’s effort to create a larger and more engaged community around regenerative living by making the most cutting edge knowledge and techniques accessible to everyone.
“Oliver is a very engaging and informative speaker. He aims to dig into his own experience and knowledge to share that with the classes, and he takes a fundamental ecological approach to the teaching of his courses. The course highlighted the importance of observation and designed the classes to ensure the participants learn and have a more profound understanding of the land and Agroforestry."
Will Ellrick, Australia
"Oliver is a very knowledgeable and organized guy. His teaching style is on eye level, carefully taking into consideration any thoughts and questions students might have on any given topic. The course was very engaging with just the right amount of theory and practice. I had a great time, learned a lot, connected to some amazing people along the way and left inspired."
