Many alternative fuels such as biogas, plant-based oils, coal, and natural gas, require considerable resources (physical and chemical processes) before they are converted into useful energy. Active renewables such as solar panels, hydro-electrical plants, and wind turbines often require advanced technology in contrast to passive renewables such as water mill, windmill and radiant heat.

Sustainable Boot Camp


Sustainable Living Academy - Boot Camp Program - Charity - Non-Profit

Our Sustainable Boot Camp program offers the opportunity to become fully immersed in a sustainable lifestyle for periods ranging from days, weeks or months at a time. With this program, participants can take time away from their normal or conventional lifestyle to experience living in a sustainable environment.

We offer 3 programs of sustainable living immersion to match the participant’s background and desired experience. Those interested in participating must complete an online application and interview with one of our boot camp staff members to help determine the best match between the participant’s skills and our program requirements.

It’s important to note that evaluation of a participant’s skills is not limited to book knowledge or practical experience with sustainable practices. Each program incorporates progressively more sustainable lifestyle challenges that may affect the participant’s ability to adjust. Some of these factors include: physical or manual labor, dietary adjustments, access to modern electronics and conveniences, group participation and cooperation, as well as emotional maturity and stability.

Our Sustainable Boot Camp immersion programs include:


Boot Camp Immersion Experiences

Our Sustainable Boot Camp Immersion Experiences requires on-site participation at our nonprofit headquarters located in Sarasota, Florida. Participation in this program is FREE of charge and requires a personal commitment by the attendee for a predefined period of days or weeks to live and work at the Sustainable Living Academy premises.

While immersed in the Boot Camp, you will participate as an active member of a group that lives in and maintains the sustainable program environment. Each Boot Camp Program has different requirements for physical participation due to the specific accessibility and availability to technology, automation and electrical power. The more sustainable the program, the less automation and more physical activity is required to maintain it. As a result, participation requires completion of an application and consultation with a representative from Sustainable Living Academy. During the Boot Camp Immersion Experiences, you will participate in daily activities that may include:
