Program Details

A full , comprehensive Sustainable Living Farm Program, in a lush tropical rainforest setting. This will be an apprenticeship opportunity for a potential Apprentice of Sustainability and Horticulture. Certificates awarded upon completion.

Our program is open to anyone from any country, worldwide. We never charge for the Retreat Programs, but rely on the support of our state food subsidy programs to supplement the food for our students. We are a Not-For-Profit business, and we do not charge for our programs.

Activities & Shift

This would be in a real-time real-life setting, and in a Teaching environment, designed for students to arrive from all over the world, learning to live and farm in much more sustainable eco-friendly ways. This particular position would be for the Apprentice to learn to become a permanent partner with the Farm (not the seasonal retreats). Much more liberties and less structure applies in this situation.
