I have been doing this natural building internship and I wanted to give it a shout out. Although the permacultureworkshop is short compared to the 5-month long internship, there is a great amount of resources and learning here that have to do with permaculture. AND this is one of the few natural building educations where you don't have to pay for it. You get a place to stay, a $100/mo. food stipend, and do a start-to-finish construction job in 5 months! I also have not been in a more cohesive household living situation and there are 16 interns in this house!
To get your natural building experience WAY up, work on social permaculture, and get connected with a community that has a great amount of resources for permaculture, gardening, and building, this is impressive. There is an on-campus garden as well, and many jobs available after the internship with permacultural landscapers, natural building, and continuing with Community Rebuilds. Applications are available now for 2018 Spring and Fall semesters.
Here is their information:
Community Rebuilds is a Utah-based nonprofit, dedicating to educating young professionals in straw bale construction, while building quality, affordable housing.
Our Natural Building Internship is a 5-month program in which 16 interns are selected to build two straw bale homes from foundation to finish, under the guidance of our building instructors. No experience is necessary, and interns are provided housing and a food stipend. Supplemental experiences include a 3-day permaculture workshop and a solar panel installation workshop.
