Homesteading Internships at PRI Finca Quijote

Project: Natural Capital™ Plant Database

Posted by Daniel Halsey almost 9 years ago


We have recently converted our volunteer program into an intern program in an effort to focus our attention on working with individuals who are truly committed to learning and sharing knowledge on permaculture.

Our farm is an educational and demonstration farm for permaculture in the wet tropics. Permaculture isn’t just a way of farming or a hobby, on the homestead it’s a lifestyle. Permaculture is a part of our lives right down to how we process our garbage and dry our clothes. In addition to the farm basics such as planning, planting, maintaining, harvesting, animal care and etc., this year we will be doing earth bag and bamboo construction on the farm. It is all hard work, but very rewarding with new skills to be learned along the way.

Our interns have the opportunity to experience and learn from all aspects of life on our homestead, farm work and the various projects happening this year. We do not require that you have all sorts of special skills, but we are however only looking for serious candidates who have the right combination of interests and intentions. Everything is an exchange and we are practicing the gift economy. Although it is impossible to put a price value on the experience and knowledge you have the opportunity to receive, we do need to charge our interns a fee to cover housing and miscellaneous costs. Our fee is $450 a month and we ask for a commitment of three months. With this you receive dorm style lodging, 3 hearty meals a day, hot showers, wi-fi, basic alaundry service and weekends free to relax or travel.

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.

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.
