You will be learning how these Nature Based Solutions are designed and constructucted during your Academy.

About the land

The building will be located on a permaculture farm just 10 minutes from Feldkirchen in Carinthia, on the south side of Wachsenberg. The land sits 700 meters above sea level and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. The farm has been transformed from an abandoned farm into a beautiful permaculture farm in just a few years.

The property is located in southern Austria, near the small town of Feldkirchen, close to the Italian border. It is a 3-hour drive from Venice, Italy, and a 3.5-hour drive from Vienna, Austria. There are also good train and bus connections to the town.
