Want to immerse yourself in hands-on bamboo ??? 

Join us for up to 3 months for the annual bamboo harvest & build at our permaculture training farm, Djanbung Gardens, in Nimbin NSW

You will receive on-the-job training and experience in bamboo clump management, harvest, trimming, treating, curing and storing, use of specialist bamboo tools, construction techniques, making bamboo screens, fences and structures, and supporting the annual bamboo workshop.  We have mature stands of a diverse range of excellent building and crafting bamboos

During the internship you can also participate in other activities on the farm including bottle walling and other construction projects and planting tropical vegetables for summer. Interns are welcome to join APT class excursions to permaculture projects and organic farms in the bioregion.

This is a "Work-for-Wisdom" volunteer placement involving 20 hours/week input in exchange for accommodation and on-the-job training.  Additional work hours can be credited towards participating in other PCA workshops and courses.  Minimum preferred internship commitment is for 6 weeks. 

Residential interns have full access to PCA student resources, extensive reference library and internet (wifi) and will participate in daily rosters for feeding the animals and watering the gardens. 
Interns live in three charming railway carriages as a living learning community with equipped kitchen and contribute to a communal kitty for meals.

Djanbung Gardens is less than 1 km from Nimbin Village, where you can connect with a range of community projects, sustainability initiatives, social and cultural events, visit Rainbow Power Company and local farmer and craft markets.
