Sustainable Living Apprenticeships in Costa Rica!

The Sustainable Living Apprenticeship Program is geared toward those who want to immerse themselves into learning sustainable living techniques. Our rigorous curriculum offers you the hands-on experience to build your own home, start a business building for others, or kick-start a teaching career in the green industry. We offer a range of earth building techniques which utilize local, recycled, and low cost materials. Our goal is to give you the skills and guide you on the path toward self-sufficiency.
Our 3 month program includes techniques such as cob, adobe domes, Superadobe, siting, design, foundations, drainage, flooring, doors and windows, niches and shelving, artistic elements, living roofs, reciprocal roofs, plastering, earthen paints, rocket mass heaters, traditional masonry heaters, earthen ovens, composting toilets, food dehydrators, aquaponics, Permaculture, and more. Topics covered and hands-on experience will be determined by the length and timing of your stay. We begin construction on a cob home with a living roof during the last week of April.
Included are any scheduled programs during the time of your visit. We also invite our participants to join our circles, ceremonies, and Kundalini Yoga.
