Embercombe, change your world.
Embercombe inspires people to deepen as a human being and to take courageous action to change their world. We are delighted that during the 9 days of Bristol Big Green Week, our beautiful 100ft Dutch sailing barge, the Volharding will be moored on the quay next to the Arnolfini; after the Embercombe apprentices sail it around from London. This will be our base for a wonderful assortment of activities, talks and events that will engage, challenge and inspire you to make a difference in your life and the lives of those around you. We look forward to welcoming you on board Volharding at one of the many exciting events on our programme.
