A low cost, open-source, large format, industrial output (3kg / hr+) 3d printer (Additive Manufacture platform) for our bio-composite bio-materials and recycled waste plastics to print The Green Camp System.
The Weekend will begin with a screening of Riverwoods (click the poster to see the trailer) in The Vicar's Hall at Chichester Cathedral with a presentation from the film maker Peter Cairns from Scotland Big Picture all about their incredibly inspiring ecosystem restoration projects in Scotand. Proceeds are being donated to the project's charity which is currently raising funds to reforest The Dark Isle in Invernessshire. The film details how their restoration projects have a massive positive effect on the environment and local communities in scotland and how these inspiring restoration models can be applied anywhere...
We will then head back to Green Camp Ellanore to our eco-domes, cosy around the fire by the sea to spend the rest of the weekend wrapping on about these solutions with a program of Yin Yoga, meditation, healthy vegan food, music and other nature based activities led by the amazing Alex Rogers and the rest of The Green Team. Our focus is on being inspired and supported by positive and working nature based solutions and their people and restoring our own mental and physical health.
This feature length Documentary has been a labour of love by Otto and Ludo Brockway for the last 8 or so years. Narrated by our Kate Winslet, the film explores the most important, effective and accessible solutions of our time. We look forwards to exploring this with you, the producer of E2E Mark Galvin and some of the E2E team! We are also grouping the leading functional medical and nutritional scientists on the island, some of our absollute favorite artists, herbalists, nature protectors and healers.

Tawai is a word the nomadic hunter gatherers of Borneo use to describe the connection they feel to their forest home. In this dreamy, philosophical and sociological look at life: Bruce Parry (of the BBC's Tribe, Amazon & Arctic) embarks on an immersive odyssey to explore the different ways that humans relate to nature and how this influences the way we create our societies. From the forests of the Amazon and Borneo to the River Ganges and Isle of Skye, Tawai is a quest for reconnection, providing a powerful voice from the heart of the forest itself. Bruce will be present for a Q&A after the film and will be at Green Camp Ellanore all weekend for the forest gardening, meditation, music and other options that weekend. See create.green/screen for more info.
Green Camp Ellanore is in the beautiful village of West Wittering, a quaint little cottage in the middle of a field by the sea. Here is some basic info about how to get here:

99% bio-based biocomposite for 3D printing. A PLA like product with wood celulose fibre re-enforcement. UPM Formi biocomposite has high performance qualities with lower carbon footprint than fossil-based materials. The biocomposite combines mouldability of plastics and strength and sustainability of wood. Compared with traditional oil-based plastic, it reduces the product’s carbon emission by -50 %. It is a cost- and resource-efficient alternative for reducing the environmental impact of products.
The Pond Bio-Resin comes in felt rolls of 1m width and up to 50m in length. These 100% non-toxic biocomposite resin sheets can be laied up between the layers of natural fibre re-enforcement (Flax, Jute, Hemp, meadowgrass, old shirts etc). It has to be a natural fibre because the resin forms a covalent bond (shares an electron) with the fibre which is responsible for it's great strength. Recommend 50-50 fibre to resin ratio. Sold in rolls of 10metres minimum. 10% discount for 100 meter orders. 100% non-toxic, 100% plant based, Tg of 140C, Strength 108MPA (with natural fibres in report below), Stiffness 40GPa (Young's modulus).
