Our latest video, by Kateri Sava and Kalyn Finnell, covering last year’s Greenhouse Design Workshop.
Want to see our site, or talk with us about our project? We would be happy to schedule a time for us to meet at Ampersand and give you a tour. We cater our tours to the guest’s interests. Our normal rates are $75 for an hour and a half tour for an individual, couple or small family/group up to 6 people. It’s important to us to share our work with anyone who is interested. If the $75 fee is prohibitive, please contact us about alternative trade options.
Here are examples of what a personalized tour can focus on: Sustainable Water Systems, Natural Building, Watershed Restoration, Passive Solar Design, and Greenhouses. Tours are led by Systems Designer Amanda Bramble. We can design the experience around your interests!

Next workshop date TBD
This workshop will help you determine the appropriate design for a greenhouse customized to your needs. Will it be attached to a living structure? How many windows will you need and where will they be placed? Will you purchase a kit or build your own? When should your favorite vegetables be planted and where will they thrive within the greenhouse?
Being able to grow some of our own food has become more important than ever. Last year’s Greenhouse Design Workshop was given rave reviews. For the full workshop description, click here.
Internships are for folks who want to live at Ampersand for a period of time. Generally we have a month stay as minimum. Here are details about what we ask for and what we offer.
Apprenticeships are for folks who live close enough to come volunteer once a week and get some sustainability skills training. If you are interested let us know!
