About Program

Participants in our internship get an intensive real-world practicum on how to run an eco-friendly farm and live sustainably. Topics include aquaponics systems, worm-composting, product packaging and marketing, and cooking creative meals based on the daily harvest. For anyone who envisions starting their own farm or aquaponics project, or is just looking for an outdoor tropical get away this is a unique and invaluable opportunity!

Interns live and work in Los Brazos, Dominican Republic. Los Brazos is located 40 minutes from the surf town of Cabarete on the North Coast. The North Coast is famous for its action and adventure sports and its budding eco-tourism industry. Days off are a perfect chance to visit the ocean, maybe even learn to surf or kite surf.

We would be happy to work with schools to give academic credit or provide a list of learning outcomes achieved. Suggested internship runs for 3 months, but start dates are flexible and can be 1-12 months long
