I do not have information about internships, but the idea of getting
permaculture into the classrooms is my main interest.
I am working on a permaculture project with an elementary school.
Right now it only focuses on the landscaping/agricultural side, because
it is hands on for the younger children.
The integration of permaculture into the curriculum is more
controversial. I think it is wise to be caucious about how you present
it. A good idea is to get support from related programs, like "Project
Wild", "Schoolyard Wildlife Habitat","Service Learning" to name a few.
"Future Farmers of America" can be revived.
Use the channels that are already in existance and be creative.
Almost every subject provides links to Permaculture integrate them where
applicable. Be careful with too radical ideas they are not understood
unless the groudwork is done.
Good luck, Jenny
