Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: "Close the Loop is a 7 acre permaculture site located six miles from Nevada City, CA and just minutes from the beautiful South Yuba River. We are presently one of the most comprehensive permaculture sites in the country. Currently we are raising goats, ,chickens, ducks and a milk cow. We also butcher for our own use. Their manures are recycled for several different purposes, including composting for live soils that feed our gardens. We have gardens not only for human food, but for our livestock also. The same compost piles also create heat for our showers. In addition, our manures are slow cooked in our walk in solar oven and transformed into highly bioactive nutrients for our gardens. We have a constant stream of projects that cover all phases of construction, community development an team building in the process. This site will be open for long and short term apprenticeships. Please send letter of interest and experience so we can get a feel for why you would be a good fit."
