Internship Opportunity at the TSP Homestead — 10 Comments

  1. Hey Jack,
    Oh to be young and single again – i’d jump on this.


    Please, please, please make sure your intern is a video hound – it would be awesome to have all those projects documented with “how to” videos – warts and all. To see each aspect developed, built, tweaked and operated would be a boon for those of us who would like to duplicate some of those projects:
    * solar/battery backup system
    * Aquaponics
    * Water Catchment
    * Vermiculture system
    * Brewing system
    * Micro-brew distribution system
    * Mobile greenhouse/screen-house

    Might be a great TSP member benefit of how to vids…


    • good thought. I would +1 this.

      would throw in a different element than just a totally “permaculture” internship, but might be in line with what Jack has mentioned about teaching the intern marketing, etc.

      it would be awesome to see some more how-to’s and DIYs…


  2. I would suggest a simple background check like a normal employee would need to pass. Thinking about your wife.

  3. Would the intern be able to possibly obtain a part time job off site?

    I ask because if.. let say… I was chosen I could maintain my current bills, plus continue chopping away at debts…

    • That depends if said job took place mostly in the middle of the day and was not 5 days a week I don’t see why not. If said job was an evening job that could likely work too. Key here though is we are looking for someone to be here most of the time so like many things it depends.

  4. I would love to be able to jump on this opportunity, but I’m working in Kuwait and my contract ends at the end of August.
    Currently I’m the bread winner, so I don’t know if we could afford it unless the hub found a better paying job. We live in SC so I would have to travel there.
    I would love to come, you have a great show and good ideas.

  5. This is a fantastic opportunity! Like you said Jake, ‘to be young again’…
    The list of duties reads like my resume` – I even live close to the TSP Homestead – if my wife could replace my income, she’s totally on board with it too!
    I hope you find someone great that will enhance the fantastic job you do already.

  6. I live in an apartment. Could I store some boxes and minimal furniture somewhere so I do not continue paying rent or storage in my state ?

    • Of course not to mention your room will be HUGE, the guest rooms are truly massive on the order of about 12×16 plus a “nook” area between the gable peaks. There is also a typical closet and two large storage closets, one we will retain for storage of preps the second will be yours. So you a typical his and hers sliding door closet, a large storage closet and a huge room. We have plenty of outbuilding space as well if that isn’t enough as long as all is stored neatly.
