Solitude Farm Permaculture Internship

31 March @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm IST

Solitude Farm, Auroville, is offering a 3 month long immersive internship starting from 

1st July to 28th September 2024 

1st Oct to 30th December 2024.

A reclamation of a cultural identity through understanding where our food comes from. Participants will explore a road back to nature through valuing local foods. We will learn about the principles of permaculture and natural farming and how to grow, harvest, and cook our own food. The field modules will also explore soil, nursery, seeds, edible weeds, etc., and there will be weekly field trips to other inspiring projects. Integral to this internship is the Solitude – farm-to-plate cafe, cooking, food processing, preserving, making ayurvedic powders, and even learning how to make vegan ice cream!

As well as recurring modules in the fields, cafe, nursery, and seed bank, participants will be encouraged to document their journey and, in the second month, to take up an individual project such as traditional millet recipes, nutrition in schools, or art and farming. Participants will also be engaged in our educational programs: learning and teaching how to make soap, bio-enzymes, and recycling water, identifying and harvesting edible weed, and teaching how to make delicious salads.

Participants will live at Solitude Farm and will be very much part of the community, helping with our events such as concert nights and music festivals.  

If this speaks to you and you see yourself growing, harvesting, cooking, and eating your own food, then click the below, and I would love to hear from you. 



If your application is successful, we will send you a contract and an invoice, which should be signed and paid within ten days. 

At the end of the internship program, the interns will be awarded a certificate. The deserving interns will be offered the opportunity to stay on a Volunteer Faculty for the next 3 months programmers or get involved with Solitude Farm in another capacity, such as education, outreach, farm, cafe, or helping to develop a new project. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
