Since getting to Lost Valley at the end of last year, i have been continuously astounded by the ingenuity, creativity, and passion of the folks here! So many come here to learn some about Permaculture, EcoVillage Design, and sustainability, but end up learning so much more. All too often folks that come here end up becoming teachers themselves, by coming as learners and doers, and realizing that they have so much to share and such an amazing place to do it. The land here is magical, the facilities are great and are constantly evolving towards more sustainable design and practice. I have been traveling around for a few years now studying and looking for places that i can do some of the things that lost valley offers, and they seem to have it all in one spot. Thank you LVEC for welcoming me into your community, and i hope that the readers of this get to experience the magic of this place as well!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

take so much of what we know about sustainable and renewable technology and teach how these systems work. There is an abundance of knowhow, and with the budget could teach more of the life changing ideas permaculture has to offer.

Ways to make it better...

There was more funding for bigger projects and technology. It is so amazing here, but it is hard when you have to work so much to make ends meet, when that energy could be better served in the education of the students that come here and community.

As an intern at Lost Valley I have worked in several departments beginning in the Garden, kitchen, working with SASS and with the land crew and now with the Camassia Institute as the teaching assistant intern. I've really benefited from the opportunity to explore the different intern roles here to discover the one that most fit my interests. Working with the Camassia Crew has been amazing for me. I spend lots of time with the students and the instructors of our courses and I've really familiarized myself with the material. As I dive deeper into observing teaching styles, I've really begun to hone in on my own. I also work with the website, marketing and other office work making this internship very well rounded. Lost Valley has definitely provided me lots of chances to grow myself.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that come to Lost Valley are excellent. Such motivated, inspired and interesting characters come from all over the country to learn here which creates a beautifully diverse experience!

Ways to make it better...

Lost Valley had an intern co-ordinator. With a grant or larger budget Lost Valley interns could really benefit from a stable intern co-ordinator position.
