Bodhi Farms Internships and Permaculture

We offer internships and space for WWOOFers at our organic farm. We would encourage people interested in an internship or wwoofing on our farm to contact us. Our farm is a permaculture farm which means we use permaculture techniques even when we grow vegetables.

We also in process of planning and planting a food forest in the areas around the farm not suitable for organic agriculture. Our library is filled with numerous books on permaculture, farming, farm living and history.

We can accommodate a wide range of diets including vegan and vegetarian diets. Please contact if you are interested in interning at a permaculture farm. Please contact Brian by phone (505-617-1191) or email us at We accommodate WWoofers on a short term basis typically a month or longer. WWoofers can become full time interns if they work out.
