Live at OAEC in 2023!
The Occidental Arts and Ecology Center (OAEC) is an 80-acre demonstration, education and advocacy center and organic farm located in western Sonoma County, California. Now in our 28th year, OAEC’s work focuses on cultivating ecological literacy and building the capacity of civic and social movement leaders and organizations to guide their communities toward an ecologically regenerative, economically viable, and socially just future.
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!
Interviews start October 15th. Early application is encouraged!
