JUNGLA workshops facilitate a dynamic space in which essential skills and culture are shared. Right now our focus is gastronomic but our vision is to establish a diverse team of experts and researchers creating an environment for cross-fertilisation of interdisciplinary ideas, creativity, culture and customs. We see this naturally extending to building/constructing/permaculture, design, and social/soul/empowerment workshops and would love to hear from you if you share our vision and wish to join us in creating this co-learning space.

 

  • All workshops will focus strongly on teamwork and encourage participants to work together sharing knowledge during the workshop. 

  • We tailor each workshop to suit your specific interests, needs and timeframe. 

  • Workshops can be held in a variety of locations and can be selected to best suit your needs
