Richard Perkins of integralpermanence.org has bought a farm to establish ridgedale PERMACULTURE, a pasture and perennial crop based beyond-organic local food producer and dedicated Permaculture educational hub in Varmland, Sweden. A flagship project for the region, ridgedale PERMACULTURE is Scandinavia’s first Keyline designed farm and a world class education provider in the fields of Permaculture & Regenerative Agriculture.
We are going to be offering intensive trainings from April 2014 onwards including a unique 10 Week Internship with over 530 hrs of curriculum based learning and 5 Certificate courses; including a 90hr+ PDC, Keyline® Design & Holistic Management®, Regenerating Soils, Forest Gardens & Perennial Cropping and Teaching Permaculture Creatively. These internships are designed to support dedicated students from around the world wanting a fast- track intensive & immersive learning experience that goes deep into design, planning, budgeting and managing holistically.
We are excited, and we are looking for 4 core members who want to take their learning to the next level who want to join us from early April through October 2014. Some roles have a stipend and all include top quality organic/ beyond organic food and simple accommodation in the beautiful heart of Scandinavia, where we farm amidst the elk, deer & wolves (oh, and did we say, the salmon run is just 500m up the hill!)
You will also get to participate in selected trainings and through your responsibilities will learn a huge amount to help fast track your own learning pathway. Working alongside a professional designer we encourage you to document your learning and build a portfolio just like the intern's will be doing, and can support you if you are on further education course, such as the Diploma.
