Internships in Permaculture

Yankee and Elfin Permaculture have created openings for two interns at our
newly-acquired facilities in central Florida.  We seek people with vision,
self-motivation, and balanced senses of adventure and boundaries.  Work
will include both office work for our publishing and teaching activities
and outdoor work as we create a permaculture design for our own place. 
Specific tasks will be balanced between routine work and projects for
which the intern takes primary responsibility. Duration of programs is
negotiable though we prefer a potential period of one year or more. With
enough time, interns can develop profit-sharing enterprises using our
resource base.

Arrangements can be made for suitable interns to reside on site as our
guests.  There will be the opportunity for each intern to develop a
personal garden area, if s/he desires, to manage in any way consistent
with ecological responsibility and organic practices.  Simple vegetarian
basics and cooking facilities can be provided. (Meat eaters are
welcome--we just don't want to pay for it.  There may be surplus fish and
game.)
Tobacco smokers will not be considered because of plant diseases carried
on tobacco and its smoke.  No drugs or illegal substances of any kind are
acceptable here.

There is also opportunity for select Permaculture Design Course graduates
to fill these slots as apprentices in our APT (Advanced Permaculture
Training) program.

For details, send a concise statement to us directly at the email or U.S.
