Mudlark Permaculture Internships

Project: Mudlark Permaculture

Posted by Carolyn Payne-Gemmell almost 12 years ago

Early announcement of our dual site Internships for 2014

Mudlark Permaculture will be offering internships in 2014 covering activities at both our Beaufort Farm site and our Ararat Urban Demonstrations site.

Internship will be based on a WWOOFa style of operation, however we expect you to stay with us for at least 4 weeks to immerse yourself in a Permaculture lifestyle.

Our Ararat Urban Demonstration site is in its early evolutions, with a mainframe of water harvesting earthworks and inital food forest planting. Work in the main crop garden will be a large feature of the urban site work and associated jobs such as mulching, compost making and food preserving.


The Mudlark Beaufort farm demonstration site will be in its third year of development with a mainframe of water harvesting earthworks,  food forest plantings, cell grazing, plantation and regenerated timber management.

Work on the farm demonstration site will focus around tree planting, animal husbandry, fencing, mulching, pruning and firewood.

[Native plantation always plenty of pruning to be done]


Beaufort and Ararat are on the Western Highway (M8) west of Ballarat in Western Victoria.

Public transportation to Ararat from Melbourne: 3 trains per day from Southern Cross station via Ballarat also intermittent buses.  Country buses run through from Western Victoria and South Australia.

Your questions and enquiries are most welcome.

Email [email protected] I check it morning and night.

Or text my mobile 0417648833-service can be intermittent when I am out on site.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

Male memberFemale member

Permaculture Matchmaker

One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.



People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.


PDC Teacher

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.


Aid Worker

The individual with this badge is indicating they are, have, or would like to be involved in permaculture aid work. As such, the individual may or may not have permaculture aid worker experience. Watch their updates for evaluation.



The individual with this badge is indicating they are, have, or would like to do paid permaculture design consultancy work. As such, the individual may or may not have permaculture consultancy experience. Watch their updates for evaluation.


Community Project

Community projects are projects that help develop sustainable community interaction and increase localised resiliency.
