This volunteer role will focus on photography and short high quality educational film to document the development of diverse and integrated systems at the farm. Graphics work enhancing photos with digital art/ text & general informational posters would be an awesome addition. We will work closely with you in this regard.
Our 2014 training schedule runs from end April through October, and during this time dramatic changes will occur on the farm as we implement the "skeleton" of the design. This will include Keyline plowing & Keyline tree bed prep/ planting, earthworks and regenerative animal systems, extensive kitchen gardens & fertility farming, natural building plus a whole lot more. To get an idea of what is in store we suggest you look through this series of articles breaking down design at the farm through the perspective of the Keyline Scale of Permanence;
We will provide full accommodation & the highest quality organic/ beyond organic food throughout your stay. You will also be able to take one of our renowned PDC courses for free in Sept this year, as well as sit in on other specialist trainings and you will be very much integrated into our core team. Awesome saunas, incredible sunsets, magical nature and the best quality food you can get plus a whole lot of fun with incredible people from every part of the world is just how we roll. We normally work Mon- Fri and whilst this role is flexible it would be best to consider yourself "on" this schedule, and there will be plenty of hands on experience in all kinds of systems work to engage with also.
