Project Bona Fide (PBF) is a demonstrative permaculture farm and educational center that utilizes permaculture design, agroforestry, research & education, and community collaboration to promote food security and sustainable living systems on Isla de Ometepe in southwest Nicaragua.
As interns with Project Bona Fide, participants gain invaluable experience working directly with a grassroots organization in the intern’s area of interest. Working with Project Bona Fide’s staff, interns will receive on-site training and skill-building in a number of key areas of the farm. We offer this dynamic position to self-motivated individuals who are eager to expand their knowledge of permaculture design, food security and sustainable living systems. Project Bona Fide depends on the contributions of interns to help maintain our 26-acre permaculture farm, develop new practices, and enrich our shared experience of conscious living.
