Tips for you
I took a two hour bamboo model making workshop in the morning @ green village and toured the green school as part 3 of the afternoon tour. The communication and instructions form the website and confirmation emails are very confusing. I had to skype the admin office to find out what time it was on and where to meet them. Our your guide was Gika, I graduate of the school and now development officer. She was friendly but ranted a little on how amazing the school was. It reminded me of listening to highschool girls having a conversation - not that interesting. My reason for the tour was to observe the bamboo structures and the general ethos of the school. I was not interested in what the tour guide had to say nor did I find it that interesting. The school is fantastic and comparatively sustainable to the norm hence being the 'greenest school on earth' BUT, reverse osmosis machinery pumping aquifers when Bali has 15% of it's water remaining... NOT sustainable. All in all good, but time consuming, put aside a few hours.
