Permaculture Internship

We are offering an internship for the next two months for a very motivated individual interested in learning aspects of permaculture design and land management, organic horticulture and agriculture, animal husbandry, and eco-renovation. The internship is free with accommodation and meals included, but we expect a lot of work in return: some stimulating and some mundane. All serious inquiries should be directed to me. Feel free to pass this along to interested parties. 

Over the last four years we have developed a premier example of a suburban permaculture property. We are now in the process of doing the same on a 5 hectare farm. Below are some examples of projects we have going.

Here is a hugelkultur swale we have been building.

  1. hi there!! The internship sounds amazing and looking your website and the pictures, even more!!!I am really motivated to have this opportunity, what should I do to apply properly?:)

  2. Beautiful! I really think Perma is our greatest hope for the future and it’s the one skill I believe we need most. It looks like I could learn a lot from you, and this will help me spread permaculture around the world. I would love your partnership in saving our beautiful Mother Earth! Are you still offering the internship and would you consider a couple? If so, please contact me.

    Much love,
    Anna
