    Weʼve raised £140 to create a bursary fund for a Wind Turbine Building Workshop

    South West Wales
    Funded on Saturday, 31st August 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Can you donate a small amount to create a “Fair Shares” bursary fund for our upcoming workshop?

    What’s happening?

    In autumn 2019 Dyfed Permaculture Farm Trust are hosting a Wind Turbine Building Workshop. We have invited Jonathan Schreiber from Pure Self Made to come over from Austria to lead the workshop and share his considerable skill and expertise. All images are from previous courses run by Jonathan.

    The workshop offers participants an amazing opportunity to learn all about DIY wind energy production from a leading figure in the field, help build a fully functional wind turbine from scratch and learn workshop skills that could be transferred to many different projects. Read more about the workshop here .

    Why do we want a bursary fund?

    We have tried to keep the course fees reasonable and think the workshop is amazing value for the potential skills and experiences that people will take home with them.

    We are also aware that there are people who might really benefit from this workshop who may not be able to afford the course fee.

    By contributing to the bursary pot, you can help us open up this opportunity to more people, embed more of these useful skills into our communities and support the work of Dyfed Permaculture Farm Trust.

    Our Contribution

    Dyfed Permaculture Farm Trust will be donating some of the camping costs to increase the size of the bursary pot. Phil and Michelle, the current Trust residents, will be covering the cost of all tools and materials for the course, plus materials for the complete installation and any shortfall in course costs.

    How will it work?

    Potential course participants will be able to apply to the bursary fund if they think they need assistance to be able to access the course. We will work with each applicant to decide on the level of support they need, so that the bursery fund can benefit as many people as possible.

    If we end up with a bigger fund then is needed for this workshop, we will use the remainder to establish a general Educational Bursary Fund. This will be used to fund subsidized places on future courses and workshops run at the Trust, for people who might otherwise be excluded by cost.
