We are really excited to be able to offer internships of between 2 and 6 months at The Grange for individuals or potentially for a couple. Interns live in our beautiful yurt in the meadow and all food is provided. You will have access to a compost toilet and have basic cooking facilities in the yurt.
Living at The Grange is extremely rewarding but also does require the ability to be involved in some quite physical work, and the sensitivity to work alongside people who have survived trauma and might currently be living in very difficult circumstances.
Through the internship programme you will have the opportunity to develop a range of skills and to get a very rounded understanding of the work we do with refugees and asylum seekers, permaculture and building resilience.
At this time we are particularly looking for people with some experience in food growing who would be happy to spend time developing the permaculture garden at The Grange and who is confident and comfortable to lead small groups of people in gardening activities. You will also have the opportunity to learn and develop skills in caring for animals, food growing, working with groups, supporting courses, permaculture design, traditional crafts and much more.
We are looking for someone who is independent, friendly and self-motivated.
