Green Jobs tasters on offer

There are two kinds of jobs: Those in the global economy and those in the local economy.

Jobs in the local economy are more abundant and less well paid. In a recession they offer more security. These taster sessions are aimed at this sector.

Green Jobs cover all the essentials: Food, Energy, Construction and Manufacturing, Travel, Health and Healing, Culture, Entertainment and Education, Government and Management etc.

Being green means they tend to use mainly local resources and do not deplete them, they aim for high welfare of people and other animals. They are jobs that can be done forever without harming the planet and its communities.

We in Pembrokeshire Transition can offer:

Metal work with Hart Stoves and others: Making simple tools using locally grown charcoal, or fine metal work with Jonathan Wendon, silversmith, making bowls, casting ornaments.

Healing with Pembrokeshire School of Healing: A range of hands-on taster lessons

Vegetable growing and seed saving with the Real Seed Company: Keen to share their expertise in the field.

Bread making with Vicky Bread: Earn a modest living making unique bread – you only need 20 customers.

Home building: Complete cosy stylish roundhouse, most materials can be found in the woods. House yourself or provide a garden den for £hundreds not £thousands. DVD of the process or 2 week course with Tony Wrench.

Renewable electricity: Electronics in 4 hours with Sustainergy.

Self government with protest veterans: There are techniques to make decisions fast, concensually, wisely and with large numbers of people. Revolutionary!

The people sharing their expertise are practical people earning and living by what they do. This is just a sample of what could be offered.

Tutors including materials cost up to £100 per day and can teach 12 – 18 people in groups. Around 15 people could try 4 tasters in a longish day.

Some of us can travel with our equipment. We can more easily accommodate tuition in our pretty sustainable settlement.
