“Awesome place. It’s cool to know some people still care about the environment.” — Tessa Lew, Christchurch
Peel Forest Outdoor Centre is dedicated to maintaining, enhancing and educating about reducing impacts on our natural environment. We run regular workshops on sustainable living. These include:
Strawbale and earth building
Alternative energy sources
Ecologically sound water and waste
Natural plasters and paints
Heritage building restoration
See how we have put sustainable living practices into effect and the positive impact it has had on the local environment. Tutors include Blue Forsyth and Sven and Sarah Johnson, all well known and regarded within the sustainable living community.
School groups which stay at the EcoLodge are participating in sustainable living - students are exposed to technologies such as solar power and earth building, while also experiencing consequences such as running out of power if they leave the lights on!
