We are currently in negotiations to purchase a 100,000+ square foot building on several acres. This will be a large permaculture co-op project. 25,000 square feet will be divided into approx. fifteen private living areas. Yes, you will have your own private space. The permaculture project will include aquaponics, alt. energy experiments, bee-keeping, raising chickens, Goats, etc. Each living area will be awarded to live-in interns and their families. If you are interested in participating in one of the largest permaculture projects, where you can live and participate in our community, please forward a list of skills that you can offer. Please be aware, that we consider enthusiasm and willingness just as valuable as a PhD. And we promise, you'll never spend a single night by the campfire singing kumbaya. The project will be located near Charlotte, NC.

Haaahahaha, good one! Nice to know the project can be taken seriously without too much hippie fluff. Any concept pictures or photos would be nice to give readers a visual sense.

Hi just wondering when work will start, what the living conditions/accommodation/compensation will be while working, and whether technical training is necessary or a few years' experience and willingness to get busy will do thanks
