Permaculture Apprenticeship

Project: Heartwood Institute

Posted by Lauren Proctor almost 6 years ago

This is an amazing opportunity for the right person to take advantage of living at a site dedicated to research, demonstration and education of Permaculture, while learning of viable solutions for today’s challenges. The opportunities for learning are end

Are you looking to take your skills and experience to the next level?

Live at Heartwood Institute in beautiful and peaceful Humboldt County. Be immersed in Permaculture; working alongside other teachers, students, and community members. This is an amazing opportunity for the right person to take advantage of living at a site dedicated to research, demonstration and education of Permaculture, while learning of viable solutions for today’s challenges. The opportunities for learning are endless!

The Apprentices will work closely with the Permaculture Directors and staff to help oversee and facilitate the Permaculture Immersion Program students by working with them in the gardens and projects on-site. Additionally apprentices will work on other priority projects when needed, taking on leadership roles and being given proper support for personal success and growth.

Recognizing the best way to learn is by doing, the Apprentices will be doing hands-on service learning with us. Some of the projects we will be collaborating on are  Land restoration, Garden and farm maintenance, Infrastructure construction, Repairing and upgrading fencing, Installing water-wise irrigation systems, Building basic farm facilities (composting toilets, solar showers, etc.)

                And Much More!

The Apprentice Receives:

  • Accommodation at Heartwood Institute
  • Organic food prepared by staff and Apprentices
  • Participation in on-site permaculture trainings
  • Access to Heartwood facilities; hot-tub, sauna, and 200 acres of  walking trails
  • Opportunity to refine and deepen their own skills, and knowledge while cultivating the qualities of a leader and teacher
  • Mentorship from Permaculture Directors

The Apprentice Agrees To:

  • Approximately 30 hours of work/week
  • Work with other Permaculture students coming to Heartwood
  • Respect Heartwood Institutes Community Agreements
  • Make a minimum three month commitment

Qualifications:

We are looking for individuals who have some prior experience working within the field of Permaculture, in the farm & garden setting, natural building, appropriate technology, etc. By highlighting your knowledge and previous experience where possible we allow space for growth and deeper engagement in your particular skill set. The Apprentice should feel confident in some fields of study or work on the level of sharing and leading others. We want to be working with people who wish to develop their facilitating and leadership skills during their time here with us. Most importantly, we seek people that are passionate, motivated and love this type of work!

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.

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.
