Upcoming FH Wetland Systems Training Seminars, Spring 2024

Spring2024

Eco-friendly wastewater treatment; design and implementation

Reed beds, constructed wetlands, willow filters, zero discharge willow systems and source separation technologies.

These seminars are designed for architects, engineers, site assessors, planners and system installers who wish to gain a greater understanding of natural and low carbon sewage treatment systems. We will explore the fundamentals of system design, construction and planting; enabling participants to use these as part of EPA Code of Practice (2021) approved designs, as well as covering innovative design options for challenging sites (which are not necessarily Code approved approaches, but can be effective at addressing existing pollution issues).

The online workshop gives and overview of the issues involved, the options available and the most eco-friendly solutions which may be adopted in a given situation. The in-person workshop includes a more in depth look at the subject and allows greater time for questions and discussions; as well as a visit to a working system.

Water on the Land: Solutions to Flooding, Climate and Biodiversity

Farm-scale and urban solutions for water management and repair

These workshops looks briefly at the role of conventional land and water management in creating many of the problems that we see around flooding, climate breakdown and the biodiversity crisis; then specifically focuses on the solutions for turning these problems around. The beauty of land and water management solutions is that they are local by definition, and often within our direct power to create change. This course is solutions oriented and practical; building a toolkit of practical measures that can be adapted for any farm, urban area, or full stream or river catchment.

The workshops are designed to be of assistance to the farming community, community groups, tidy towns groups, farm advisors, local authorities, urban planners and others with an interest in keeping water clean, nature based flood prevention, climate resilience and biodiversity habitat repair and enhancement.

The online workshop gives and overview of the issues involved, the options available and the most eco-friendly solutions which may be adopted in a given situation. The in-person workshop includes a more in depth look at the subject and allows greater time for questions and discussions; as well as a visit to working examples.

EcoVisioning: Seeing the Future and Loving it

Exploring 'the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible'

How we feel about the world around us directly affects the world we see. Often the challenges can feel overwhelming, so our positive work can become bogged down by fear and inertia. Beliefs shape our day to day realities, and our collective beliefs around the natural world have a direct bearing on how we prioritise our politics, society and lives. Eco-visioning offers a creative exercise for exploring complex issues and for bringing answers and insight to challenging problems.
This in-person workshop explores what author and philosopher Charles Eisenstein calls 'the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible'. EcoVisioning is a dreaming space designed to facilitate participants in envisioning the best imaginable future and inviting that future into being.

In-person 1 day Training Workshop:
Date: Sunday 21st April 2024
Time: 10am to 4pm
Venue: Lahinch, Co. Clare.
Cost: 55 Euro incl. VAT; light lunch included. Payment with your order by electronic transfer or cheque. To book your place email elinor.hitching@gmail.com or telephone 065-7075631. 10% discount for bookings by Fri 10th May.
