Self Sufficiency

Self-Sufficiency Courses Online

It takes 13 tonnes of water to produce a single modern smart phone. Everything comes with Carbon foot prints and taxes, while children work in sweatshops in third world countries to produce goods to feed the endless hunger of global consumers. Everywhere, campaigners are working tirelessly to raise awareness of the real cost behind the food we eat and the lives we live, while more and more people are beginning to wonder if there is a better way.

 

Consider permaculture – a discipline that advocates for the creation of self-sustaining ecosystems that can provide for, both the needs of the people who live in them, and the creatures who live around them.

 

Other popular changes include the relentless push for more and more recyclables in our daily lives. In the UK alone, we now recycle more than 45% of our household waste, which is good, until you consider that other countries like Germany and Sweden manage 60%.

 

The ecological arguments for self-sufficiency in food are sound – huge amounts of energy and pollution are caused to ship food around the world to reach our plates. And in an age where food costs are increasing, the economic arguments for learning to grow your own have rarely been as compelling.

 

ADL has a wealth of courses to help you embrace a life to help you become more self-sufficient. Whether you want to live entirely off grid, or just want to do your bit for the planet, a course is the best way to get started fulfilling your ambitions and claiming more independence in your life.

 

Get a Self-Sufficiency Qualification: Our Self-Sufficiency I course will help give you a good base from which you can go into further study or a potential job.

 

Get a Career working in the Self-Sufficiency: If you would like to start a career in this area, perhaps set up your own self-sustaining farm or retreat, then our Advanced Certificate in Self-Sufficiency could give you a head start.

 

Learn about the Self-Sufficiency: Perhaps you have a keen interest in the topic and would like to learn how to become more self-sufficient in your personal life. If so, our Permaculture I course will help you achieve this.

 

Already work in the Self-Sufficiency and need Professional Development? If are currently in the agriculture business or about to expand into it, and wish to become more self-sufficient, then our Diploma in Horticulture (Permaculture) is ideal.
