We're seeking a permaculture teacher, preferably someone with an established Buddhist practice (i.e., a Buddhist meditator), for EcoDharma College ( EcoDharma combines aspects of a traditional college, a cooperative trade school, a workers' cooperative, an intentional community, an organic farm, and a permaculture demonstration site. Teachers are also needed in related subject areas:

**organic gardening/farming
**nonprofit admin/fundraising
**green building
**cooking/food preservation
**and related "re-skilling" areas

EcoDharma's curriculum has three "pillars": self-reliance reskilling and sustainable living, Buddhist practice, and community-building. Teachers will comprise a non-profit workers' collective and live together in an intentional community on site.

Feel free to ask questions, and/or forward this information to others who might be interested. Thanks!

Hi Nate,

EcoDharma will be in the U.S. The location is not yet determined. I am first trying to put together a core group of people who are passionate about the college's mission. I'm simultaneously exploring funding options, potential locations, etc. The location will be dependent on numerous factors including cost, suitability for the project and for growing food, and other factors. The location is quite open, but will very likely be in the U.S. (I suppose Canada is the other main option).

Best, Doug
