We are still accepting applications for the internship! May 23 to July 18th.
Our curriculum focuses on:
Sustainable Food Systems: We will experiment with recipes for drying, fermenting, solar cooking, rocket stove cooking, focusing on local foods.
Earthen Building: Interns will get experience with some of the following techniques: cob, sculptural relief projects, wattle and daub, primary, secondary and finish earth plasters and alis finishes.
Organic Gardening: Here at Ampersand we have a small rain catchment fed vegetable garden, a small greenhouse, and several perennial vegetable patches which integrate water harvesting earthworks. We will maintain and learn from the systems at Ampersand as well as other farms and Permaculture sites.
Land Restoration: We use rock and branches to continually restore our acres from historic damage due to road construction, mining, and livestock grazing. Learn how to stitch the watershed back together.
