at Ampersand Sustainable Learning Center
The internship is a very special time at Ampersand. Our site comes to life as amazing folk gather for an intensive learning and community living experience. We share in a lifestyle that is abundant with the essentials. This year our work projects will focus on Natural Building and Land Restoration. The classes offered will include:
Passive Solar Design
Solar Cooking and Sustainable Kitchens
High Desert Gardening Rain Harvesting
Our rustic living conditions include, solar electricity, running rainwater (frugal use is expected with both), hot showers, an indoor bathroom with composting toilets, and wireless internet access. We cook primarily with solar ovens and live off rainwater that we harvest throughout the year. We build with earth and salvaged materials.
Living with Ampersand’s sustainable systems is an education in itself. We also teach workshops that the public is invited to. The internship includes several day field trips that highlight local culture, innovation and sustainable practices. We schedule weekly for personal time and exploration.
Internship Cost is $535 per month. This covers meals, lodging, classes, field trips, and a guided personalized experiential education in sustainable living and skill building. The internship lasts two months.
There is a scholarship available too. Application deadline: March 30th.
