The Year of Mud is happy to announce that we are seeking an intern during the 2012 building season. We are offering a rare natural building internship opportunity — the chance to help build a straw bale house from the ground up, and to participate in two complete natural building workshops in an inspiring ecovillage community.

Interns will help to organize and get full participation in our Timber Frame Workshop, and Straw Bale Workshop. Come experience what it is like to build a natural home from step one at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage!

This season, interns will have the opportunity to participate in two comprehensive natural building workshops, including timber framing and straw bale building (a $3000 value if you were to take the courses separately). In addition to participating in these events, interns will help plan and organize the courses alongside the hosts. Responsibilities will include helping to establish infrastructure necessary for the workshop, acting as assistant during the actual courses, and aiding with various hosting responsibilities. Prospective interns will not only help build a natural home from the ground up, but gain valuable experience running public natural building courses.

We are looking for a time committment from April to October of this year.
