Aprovecho Research Center's Sustainability Internship Program

During these internships students have hands-on opportunities to learn about organic gardening, sustainable forestry, appropriate technology, and ecological living skills.

Aprovecho is a non-profit center for research, experimentation and education on alternative technologies that are ecologically sustainable and culturally responsive. Our fields of study include organic gardening, sustainable forestry, and appropriate technology. Aprovecho is nestled in one of Oregon's beautiful forests.


Aprovecho is offering three ten week long internships starting March 7th, June 13th, and Aug 29th. During these internships students have hands-on opportunities to learn about organic gardening, sustainable forestry, appropriate technology, and ecological living skills. The internship costs between $2,000-3,000.

Fees are used to cover room and board as well as teaching and instructional materials.

Aprovecho is also looking for people willing to do work-trade in our Appropriate Techonologies Lab doing stove research. We also need help in our organic garden and extra hands to help our Forester manage our sustainble forest. All the organic food you can eat will be exchanged for 20 hours of help a week. Ask about room possibilities.

If Aprovecho interests you, come check out our research and website. We offer information on solar and woodfire cooking stoves.
