Shift Bristol is a non-profit organisation providing holistic, hands-on training in permaculture and sustainability. We have been running a one year Practical Sustainability Course in the city for 6 years, spawning informed, enthusiastic and confident practitioners who want to make the world a better place.
We work from the grass-roots up, creating pathways towards mainstream change. We believe inspired collective action is a key to unlocking the cultural and physical changes needed to respond to the complex issues of our time. Our students spend a year fully immersed in nature, food, local materials, working with their hands, hearts and minds to discover their piece of the puzzle. Most of all they work with each other and the community around them.
