Just a few miles north of the Idaho border, 160 acres wild mountain with creeks, our family is creating a permaculture/biodynamic/organic/Sepp Holzer type farm. We find that though the lifestyle is simple, the investment and infrastructure are definitely in need of like-minded hearts, hands, and hard to say it - but $$$. Please contact for internship description and our dream details! featherstone@westcreston.ca

I am Shilpa from Rajasthan(India). I am a student of Agribusiness Management at IIM Lucknow(www.iiml.ac.in). I have worked as a marketing executive in Jaipur(India) before going for Post Graduate program in Agribusiness Management. As part of my curriculum it is mandatory to go for 8-10 weeks of Internship so I want to intern with people who are actually working at grass root level. I am 24 year old girl and have been staying in hostel or on my own since class 6th. I can cook, dish wash and other work as well (if I see the way of doing it). Being from Rajsthan (Dessert in India), I have accustomed to live in rough condition and I wont have any problem living out there. The single REQUIREMENT which I have from you is "Certificate of Internship"(mandatory to submit in my School).
My Expectation from this program-
I want to learn permaculture and embrace new culture and their way of living.
What I have-
No professional experience in the field but the will and the enthusiasm to work harder and harder.
What I can contribute-
My positive attitude and my Hands (along with mind and heart)
I do not have adjustment problem(related to stay, sharing rooms,work or any of that sort)
I don't drink and have no drug issues.
I am great with kids.
What I want from you-
Help in getting there in April.
If you have any other question,Please ask.
Have a nice Day.
Shilpa Gaur

Thanks for having us up to see the farm, Jana! The kids are still asking to go back. Hopefully we'll be in a better position to help in the near future. We wish you a good season.

Fire me boy! Cool, soothing, shameless self promotion:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
