Kibbutz Lotan Center for Creative Ecology
The Kibbutz Lotan Center for Creative Ecology is situated in Israel's southern Arava desert. We demonstrate and develop creative permaculture design techniques in extreme desert conditions.
Our flagship programme, Green Apprenticeship, is a hands on training programme with indepth theoretical lectures. It includes a number of topics, such as permaculture design, sustainable engineering, sustainable organic agriculture and natural and energy efficient building designs and techniques. The course has been created to help students develop their skills and knowledge through practical work in our environmental education center, organic gardens and alternative natural construction projects.
We offer a variety of other educational courses and always welcome new people into our home in the desert with open arms.
