The Pound Ridge Land Conservancy (PRLC) is looking for a mature college intern to 1) Use principles of permaculture and/or other sustainable design principles to create a set of planting plans and maps for a pre-existing, 3,000 square foot edible garden and 2) Use the principles of permaculture to design a 1.5-acre landscape plan for the Armstrong Education Center.
The Pound Ridge land Conservancy (PRLC): The PRLC is a small land trust that owns and manages over 350 acres of wild land in Pound Ridge, NY. To show the public how productive backyards can be we have expanded upon the traditional idea of garden to include 7 interrelated garden components: organic vegetable garden, compost, tree nursery – and coming soon – honeybee colony, orchard, a chicken flock and native plant landscaping. The PRLC sees the 2013 Garden Design Intern as integral to advancing the components of these gardens.
