EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

OUR SUSTAINABLE LIVING IMMERSION PROGRAM WILL CHANGE YOUR WORLD

Get ready to establish a strong connection with nature, explore an alternative method of development operating as a closed-loop system, and discover a sustainability model you can apply in your daily life. Sustainable Living Immersion is an introduction to the concepts of sustainable living in various aspects of life including our relationships to food, energy, waste management, responsible production and overall consumption.

 

A CLEANER WORLD REQUIRES DIRTY HANDS

Seedlings & Planting

Grow your knowledge by working with our agricultural engineer to prepare new garden beds and prepare them for planting.

Chemical-Free Farming

Depending on the daily needs of our organic gardens, you’ll learn to properly transplant seedlings, weed, water, harvest and more.

Animal Care & Wellness

You’ll work closely with our knowledgeable staff members to care for our delightful farm animals, including cows, pigs and chickens.

We believe that through service learning, students develop better understanding of and a stronger connection with our world. So be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get some dirt under your nails. Each of the following service learning components involves working one-on-one with a skilled staff member for three hours each day in various areas of the ranch, applying the practices and methods that make Rancho Margot sustainable and self-sufficient.

Permaculture Practice

You’ll learn all about living roofs, natural fences, and other highly beneficial permaculture practices implemented on the ranch.

Holistic Wellness

Put your health front and center with a week of finding nutritional balance and sharing in daily yoga practice.

Community Service Program

Help others by teaching English classes at the school or by participating in other community-building activities.
