What is the most important job in society? Policeman? Politician? Manager? Factory worker? Teacher?
Actually, the most important job in society is the one that feeds you! A Farmer! Without food, no other job can be performed.
Our current method of farming is unsustainable and we will run out of topsoil within the next 30-50 years if we do nothing.
But farming is hard, isn’t it? I don’t own any land. I don’t want to buy land if I don’t know what to do, or how to do it.
The answer is a FARM INTERNSHIP. We have several programs designed to give you a taste of farming from basic gardening all the way up to earning your Permaculture Design Certificate.
Four week farming introduction/Internship
– Shared housing or tent
– Hot showers and toilet facilities
– Kitchen facilities
– Food – we provide rice, chicken, eggs, mushrooms and fish. Vegetables are picked by you from the garden.
– Community living – Cooking, cleaning, socialising
– Farm Tasks: Managing the nursery, chickens, goats, building compost, worm farms, weeding, planting, digging earthworks, watering, spreading compost, repairing/creating infrastructure, basically, anything that we need to get done to provide our educational trainings and move our permaculture projects forward.
– All interns must contribute work in the community garden. There will be fresh produce for you to pick and seeds/seedlings for you to plant to replace what was used.
PLUS: – One-on-one/class instruction:
Soil remediation techniques
earthworks for preserving water
Trees and their functions
Food forest design
If you paid for the food and training it would cost over 10mil vnd
Cost: Cost of meals – 2,000,000vnd
One-on-one – 8,400,000vnd
By working you would offset that by 6,000,000vnd (labor (25hrs a week x 8 weeks x 30,000vnd/hr) = 6,000,000)
