Event Description

"O.U.R. Sustainable Food Production Internship is a three month internship that gives participants the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sustainable food production techniques that culminate to form a strong foundation for earning a living in food production and farming. "http://ourecovillage.org/courses-events/food-production/sustainable-food-production-internship/?event_id=18

"This internship is specially designed for participants who wish to learn the art of Sustainable Food Production in relation to organic practices, biodynamics, edible landscaping, bio-intensive, and Permaculture, with a foundational focus on starting your own small business/income production.

"This program is about empowering a new generation of farmers to understand the rigors of farming and challenges of generating income. We explore a variety of practices and techniques of growing and work with others in a cooperative and outcome focused team.

"The course fee is $3900 and covers meals, camping, tuition, fieldtrips & certifications.

"Spending 3-6 months at O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE gives you an opportunity to participate in a diverse offering of activities. Garden, greenhouses, forest and open spaces offer walks, quiet time, change in pace and other learning. Our connection with the Cowichan First Nations Community brings cultural awareness and integration of practices in our daily lives. Shared meals are at the core of community life and everyone participates in meal preparation and care of the common space chores. "
