APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMME – PRACTICAL PERMACULTURE MANAGEMENT
The Zaytuna Farm Practical Permaculture Management Apprenticeship Programme is for dedicated and hardworking self-starters, who are passionate about Permaculture and have already successfully obtained a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC).
As a Zaytuna Farm Apprentice, you will work five days a week on the Permaculture demonstration site and one weekend in four.
For the first six months of the Apprenticeship Programme your attendance, performance and progress will be monitored closely and all of the Apprentices’ who have demonstrated continuous competence will progress to a senior position for the final six months of the programme. This will lead to additional responsibilities and finer management of the plant, animal and people systems. At the end of the programme all successful Apprentices will be awarded a certificate in “Practical Permaculture Management”.
This programme is not for everyone. A year of consistently long hours of labor and working through the development of the programme is challenging. Only those who are committed to a total immersion in the world of permaculture and it’s propagation out into the wide world should consider applying.
Before submitting an application for this programme, please make sure you have read all of the details below. Ensure that you fulfil all of the requirements and confirm that you are comfortable with the Zaytuna Farm etiquette.
