I was considering places to post this unique opportunity, and realized that sometimes apprenticeships are posted here. I have made a WWOOF profile describing the homestead which also has a link to a video of the off-grid setup:
Mainly I am looking for an enthusiastic person or persons who are interested in learning how to build a house and set up a homestead, which is taking place this year. There is a tiny house for them to live in. All genders/ages welcome. All food provided for. The house design is being done together with a member of Whole Trees Madison, and the design is similar to this house https://wholetrees.com/portfolio-item/albertson-residence/ Whole (round pole) timber framing, earthen floor, bermed.
Would like input and participation from someone interested in permaculture. Lots more going on at the homestead, get in touch.
Hi Courtney, I'm a PDC graduate, and also have much experience working on organic farms (including formal training). I'm looking for a homestead to work/live on, this Summer-Fall (May-October 2020). If you'd like to discuss further, please email me: madmaa17 at gmail dot com. The photo of the house you linked to, is beautiful! I'm much more of a farmer/gardener than a house-builder, but I do plan to build a single-level tiny house at some point, have helped pour a house foundation, helped at a few straw bale construction & plastering projects, and learned to frame walls & nail up sheetrock while volunteering with Habitat for Humanity. Passive solar, photovoltaic design & installation and other alternative energy / sustainable construction/rehab modalities are big interests of mine, with much more to learn! - Marie
