Ryan – Introduction to carpentry and practical projects. Carlos and Serbal – Sustainable tourism, Socio-economic state of the world, Mindfulness, Solar Oven and Evaporation Fridge, (they also organised the intercultural activities and our magic night). Anna – Introduction to Boodaville, Observation, Coaching for change, Activism.
Also on site were our super hardworking and much loved kitchen volunteers – Marina and Susie.
