Opportunities at 8thLife

The 8thLife EcoVillage projecs is envisaged as (amongst other things) 
an Integral Cooperative of these 8+ complementary eco-businesses:

3) the top 3 will be the 'icing on the cake', not essential but really great to have at some point, 
as we have the conditions for these to work and some infrastructure already in place for them.
2) The second layer are the ones we're keen to fill soon as they are ready to go in terms of infrastructure,
as well as quite important in terms of complementing well all of the others, especially the existing ones.
1) And the bottom 3 are the base we're aready working from, covered by the regular residents here 
(click on images for biogs), although all are also open to helpers as we have lots of work on, just with these.

Café & Events

we're doing this already
 in a very small way, 
lots of scope for expansion
especially for someone
who is great at networking, maybe a paleo-caf (something original) & using produce from the garden, as part of mixed weekly or monthly events.


Forest Gardening
& Tree Nursery 

Tree nursery already started,
lots of demand for pioneering
& native species nursery
+ 8 baby forest gardens
already started (nuts & fruit)


Pottery & /or
Recycling Artist

lots of terracotta clay on site, we have a small oven + potter's wheel + a pottery workshop space 
AND we have lots of opportunities for other creative artists, especially with textiles & recycled materials


Carpentry Workshop

we have a big workshop space ready for improvement & that we are eager to put it to work + all basic tools on site & some great innovative recycled building &/or eco-tech designs opportunities for the right person (eg. making small windmills)

People who are great at Admin, Networking, Graphic Design
 as well as Domestic skills also needed - to enhance all of our work - this is central to all of our work so we are eagerly expecting our admin enthusiast to take on all this.

Garden Systems
& Food Processing

there's a big animal-tractored garden system almost ready to go & potentially produce great amounts of organic veggies
+ additional smaller gardens already in production for our own consumption
PermaCulture Education

Now also part of the EcoEscuela Network we offer Internships on site 

- there is a networking /graphic design 
expansion vacancy to enhance this work -

Animal Systems


We're already 90% self-sufficient in food mostly thanks to Jose's animal systems design, which also creates plenty of organic fertility for all of the gardens & forest-gardens on site

- Maja started also developing the camping site to enhance this work -
