This workshop will look at how we can protect local groundwater, rivers and our seas from sewage pollution. We will explore the different sewage treatment options that are available, and the environmental credentials of each system type. There will be an emphasis on domestic systems that participants can use at home, but the workshop will also explore municipal sewage options as well as stormwater filtration and agricultural buffer zones for filtering yard and field runoff. As well as exploring the treatment benefits of constructed wetlands, reed beds and willow systems, we will examine some of the other benefits of these purpose built habitats for carbon sequestration, energy generation and wildlife value.

Our Big workshop weekend offers a range of full-day courses to choose from. You can take a single course or two courses over the weekend. Our courses always get positive feedback from participants and you will benefit from on hand expert tutors with years of experience in their field. The weekend format also offers you the opportunity to meet like-minded people and to spend some time in our gardens, orchards and woodlands in beautiful East Clare.
