Each year, OAEC hires a cohort of enthusiastic interns to live and learn at OAEC for 11 months. Interns work 24 hours per week in one department – Program Administration, Facilities or Garden – and are immersed in the day-to-day running a thriving land-based non-profit. In exchange for their work, all interns are given a private, cozy place to live, organic meals, and use of all OAEC facilities (hot tub, swimming pond, etc.) Interns also receive free participation in the OAEC Permaculture Design Course, generous vacation and sick leave, plus a $300 monthly stipend. We work hard and play hard! Join us!
