I'm seeking out an opportunity for an "internship" with an intention community that has already been established or has the resources to establish itself. I have 4 years of experience working in the veterinary medical field. Namely as an emergency and surgical technician. I believe this experience can have a practical application at a community with livestock. I would like to exchange my knowledge and dedicated physical labor for hands-on experience working on projects in a variety of areas. I am very passionate about the following subjects:

Alternative fuel
Natural medicine
Sustainable energy
Earthen construction
Open-source technology

Hola! We are in the development stage in many ways... yet we have ana amazing farm in Costa Rica that we have developed with permaculture foundations. We are now developing the community, as well as various projects associated with this land.
Check out for more info
We are currently seeking volunteers - a minimum one months stay, preferably longer, 6 hours of community project help, 6 days a week... in exchange for meals and lodging... and the awesome opportunity to stay in Costa Rica.
Email us at

Here is a notice we posted also...

Dear Friends, We have gone through many changes in the past few years. Last year we decided to make some major changes of focus, goals, priorities, and development at our farm.

We now have a solid plan for the next year - which includes a lot of help with preparing, building, maintaining, expanding, organizing, and more.

The main founders of this land project also have several other projects and missions that have been keeping them from residing on the farm full time. This is one of the reasons we are now seeking help. Specifically...

We are seeking a caretaker couple to oversee the basic projects and maintenence of the farm. This includes domestic help such as food preparation, cleaning, laundry, basic gardening, overseeing basic farm systems, managing the volunteers, and possibly even admin help.

In exchange you both recieve free room and board - the opportunity to live in the amazing country of Costa Rica, with pure clean spring water, fresh mountain air, abundant beauty and nature, fresh organic foods, and be a part of a really awesome progressive project.

Check out to learn more about our vision and projects.

We also would love to have more volunteers. Individuals who can stay and help us for a minimum of 1 week, and offering 6 hours of community project service in exchange for lodging and meals. Volunteer services can include food preparation, cleaning, organizing, gardening, farming, construction, administration assistance, and more.

Please email us at if you are interested and able.

All positions are available now, and may be ongoing for some time.
