The intern profile

You are creative, hands-on, either Indonesian or foreign. You are a university student, recent graduate or someone who works hard (likes to have fun) and able to deliver results that will contribute to our vision as well as your own learning and growth. You are:

Flexible

Able to adapt to new and dynamic situations

Independant

Thrive in multi-cultural settings (great at sign language, whilst picking up the local language)

You will be hands- in- the – earth, driven and integral members of the farm. Your ability to work in a chaotic, hot, sweaty, rainy, compost and love-filled environment is essential.

What’s in it for you?

Obtain professional experience in something you’re passionate about
. Meet and network with educational and environmental leaders on a frequent basis
. Participate in community lunches, yoga, and open days on the farm. Become part of an inspiring community of change- makers. Learn how to grow and cook healthy food. Learn how to cook Balinese dishes with our awesome farm cook- Putu, learn more about gardening and bamboo building. Participate in our language exchange initiative and learn some Bahasa. Work in the Green School gardens and complete a project that will be of value to you, your career and The Kul Kul Farm.

How it works

Send a resume and cover letter to kul@kulkulfarm.com. Tell us about your passion & skills and send us some of your previous work.

Propose a project you would like to implement during your time here and if it’s in line with our values and goals we’ll provide you with the support and resources to make it happen (all prospective interns must have a project in mind that they are confident they can implement, with our help of course).

Examples of past intern projects include: designing and building rocket stoves for our community kitchen (and turning this into a workshop), designing our bamboo activity space, sourcing milking goats and designing the perfect goat shed for us to be able to produce our own milk! Other ideas: turning harvest into a value added farm product, building something useful, making a video.

We accept interns for a minimum of 6 months, in our experience it’s enough time to get used to the way we do things and to be able to create something that you’ll be proud of. If you’re a foreigner intern working permits (kitas) cost US$600 for the duration of that period. Shorter volunteer opportunities are reserved for people with very specific skills and projects in mind that they are able to implement successfully within this time frame. If you’d like to come for a short visit and do some gardening, we offer short stays on the farm, get in touch… we’ll make it happen!

Sleeping and eating

We have a beautiful bamboo bunkhouse that we rent for US$200 per month for a single room and $100 per month for a shared room. The bunkhouse has WIFI, plenty of hangout space, hammocks and beanbags, a community kitchen and dining area where you can cook, a working/yoga space, composting toilets and showers. Honestly, this is more than you’ll get anywhere else on the island. The space is pretty magical. Oh yeah… we should probably mention, we have 1 buffalo, 1 goat (soon we’ll have more), 5 chickens, 18 ducks and a puppy.

Bali farm yoga

How to get around?

Public transport is not easy to find in Bali, you will need to rent a motorbike/ scooter whilst you’re here. We are located around 30 mins south of Ubud (great for yoga, and good, healthy food) and 30 mins north of Canguu, Kuta and Seminyak (great for surf and sea).

When to come?

Between August 2016 – March 2015

  1. Hello this is Mario, I have a foundation back in Mexico to help kids, I am still looking for new ways to help the people in my community so they do not have to get involve in drug cartels.

    Since I would like to create a sustainable ranch where electricity can be produced as well as food, I was thinking to create bungalows for the kids but I have seen that you are using bamboo so that is an area where mostly I would love to get involved (carpentry and working with bamboo builders), I can help designers, create small houses with pieces of wood or help building houses or anything else that you might need help.

    I take pictures on my free time too, you can see my pics in my facebook account with this email that I am using too. Photography is kind of easy in the sense that you have to look for shadows and brightness.

    So let me know if I can go and help, I can live in that shared room for 100 dollars that is not a problem, or if you have something cheaper it will be better 😉 regarding food, I can help the chefs to get a free meal maybe during the day 😉

    I am from Mexico but currently I have a TN visa living in US. I read on your page that I need a working permit called Kita. What else do I need to go with you guys?

    Can you tell me approximately how much money I require to be there for the internship period of time?

    Well, thank you very much for your time, and hope to hear from you, have a great week,

    Mario

  2. I am very interested in doing a small or big project here to set an example for the whole of India. .. five hundred million live Outdoors. How would I proceed to doing this…I could probably get govt funding. ..

  3. Hi! just to know, do you receive intern people from Malaysia who would like to intern in Kulkul Farm Bali for about 3 months, whether from Feb-Apr 2016 or May-July 2016? Tq 🙂

    1. Hi Shafiah, unfortunately we are only permitted to have interns with us for 6 months to be eligible for an intern permit in Indonesia. However email me (maria@kulkulfarm.com) and I’ll give you some other options.
