Summer courses for adults – enrol now

We’re teaming up with West Berkshire Council to offer three new courses for adults this summer:

Darwin & the Rainforest (Saturday 6th June 2009, 10.30am – 4pm). Explore the ideas behind a theory which shook the world, venture into our rainforest glasshouses and observe the scientific principles firsthand, and consider the implications for the future.

The Rainforest – what does ‘sustainability’ mean and why should we bother? (Saturday 21st June 2009, 10.30am – 4pm). Explore global issues of sustainability and consider local challenges of sustainable living. Examine ways to become part of this important and topical global debate.

Food from the Rainforest – from them to us (Sunday 22nd June 2009, 10.30am – 4pm). Travel from source to shelf, exploring the origins of rainforest produce. Taste it before delving into the ethical and practical issues of rainforest food production, gaining insights into commodities so often taken for granted.

No prior knowledge is needed and enrolment forms are available at The Living Rainforest or West Berkshire Council. For further information, please ring the Helpline on 0800 917 5779 (10am-4pm weekdays) or email
