For the 2017 Calendar Year, we will not be hosting apprentices and/or interns.
The 2016 season welcomes our first apprentice, Jason Liechti. Jason has recently become reacquainted with his native Ohio after spending a decade on the west coast working as a film and video production professional. An avid snowboarder and backcountry explorer, Jason has always had a reverence for nature, although his interest in the green industry is a newfound passion.
An accident left him bed ridden for several months and during this time, his brother introduced him to permaculture through several book recommendations. He knew he had found his true calling and enrolled in a Permaculture Design Course as soon as he could at PRI North America Tipuana Farm in San Marcos, CA.
Shortly after, Jason spent a summer WWOOFing at the Big Bend Community Land Trust permaculture project and helping an old friend manage his 70 acre ranch and wilderness. As the growing season winded down, Jason expanded his education by completing a water harvesting course with the Watershed Management Group in Tucson, AZ and he has recently completed an advanced PDC with the Permaculture Institute in Akron, OH.
