Interested in a deep dive into permaculture living? If you are a self-motivated and self-directed person who is passionate about creating a healthy, connected, and regenerative life and are willing to work hard while learning alongside the rest of us, then a permaculture internship may be a good stop on your journey. You will thrive most readily as an intern if you’ve already had exposure to permaculture, have done some self-study and are eager to put your values into action. It doesn’t really matter what aspects of permaculture you are most interested in developing, as long as have a fire burning in you, you will find many outlets to express your creativity and skill. We are expanding our permaculture internship program and are looking for an additional 4 – 6 people to join us for the 2017 growing season. We’ve got big plans. Check out our website and submit an application if you are interested.
