Are you ready to find your place in the world and create the change you want to see?

Place Corps is an experiential learning program designed for 18-25 year olds. Situated on a 900 acre biodynamic farm in the Hudson Valley, participants will construct their eco-campus, grow their own food, and self-design study plans with the guidance of accomplished practitioners and organizations working at the forefront of new economics, biodynamics, permaculture, mindfulness, and regenerative design.
The inaugural Place Corps program will begin in June 2019. Applications are open now.
