About our Program
Work along side of us as we develop the systems and resources for resilient and abundant living. On the heels of a permaculture design course, you will join us and become part of the force of the community in day-to-day work and in bringing to life our permaculture design on the 8.7-acre property of Center for Sustainable Community (CSC).


The purpose of this program is to combine formal training (via a Permaculture Design Course) with practical experience in implementing a permaculture design, growing food, and homesteading with the community. Interns will leave with an internationally-recognized PDC Certificate and have the added option of spending time working on their own projects (both land-based and social projects) with coaching from our lead teachers.

Participants will get many hands-on experiences, share in the bounty they help to create, and emerge with a much higher level of competency and confidence in their life skills and understanding of the applicability of permaculture in their lives and communities.
