An Opportunity in Sustainable, Small Community Living and Learning at Ampersand Sustainable Learning Center in Cerrillos, NM.
The community: www.ampersandproject.org It consists of the couple who own the land and run the Learning Center (us), sometimes interns, and other intermittent volunteers and friends. We live off rain catchment so our use of water is frugal. The electricity is completely from solar power, so use must be self monitored. The outdoor kitchen and community bathroom and small yurt are shared facilities. Lots of beautiful land to be explored. Things are mellow in the winter and more active in the summer. We are looking for someone to stay through the winter.
The cottage: Warm and comfortable, rustic, off-grid, with earthen plaster and rain catchment, the cottage's design is intended for conscious use of resources. It's a 2oo sq ft passive solar strawbale cottage with a sleeping loft. Looking for individual or couple with previous experience or dedicated interest in simple living. Perfect for those interested in low tech, sustainable living. Wi-fi is available.
$325/month plus work trade.

Hey, my name is Jack Lukins. I'm a student at The Evergreen state College in Olympia, focusing on agriculture. I'm looking for an internship this winter and Ampersand sounds really great. I have experience in farming, herbal medicines, and mycology. I'm hardworking and really looking for a new place to go this winter. Get back to me if you're still looking for osmeone. Thank you much!
