We believe that permaculture education should be accessible to all. This is why we started the work-trade program. Becoming one of our work-traders allows students to exchange a certain number of hours of work for up to 50% of their tuition costs. Due to the high number of applications we receive, only complete ones will be considered.
Please take into consideration the following before applying:
Joining P3's worktrade is a commitment. Like a real job, it involves joining a team and meeting its expectations.
The worktrader will receive a discount based on the worktrade hours completed before the start of the target course. This discount will not exceed 50% of the course price.
Every worktrade starts at a $15/hour rate.
Please have a look at the worktrade tasks listed below. However, note that not all positions are available all the time and that new positions might come up.
Note that work-trade applications are considered once the minimum number of students needed to run a course has been reached.
