Versaland is a 145-acre permaculture research farm in Iowa City, Iowa. Science-focused and early stage, Versaland (with you!) will plant 12,000+ trees in the 2016 season while continuing to develop our ponds, earthworks and Keyline installations.

Versaland operates custom-built machinery, an electric tractor and many other farm innovations.

Hosting skill-specific workshops throughout the season including a Permaculture Design Course and leading in GPS Keyline design, interns will gain a lifetime of experience.

Hacker, writer, artist, or engineer, we’re looking for talented folks who will tinker with the future of agriculture.

Smart and ambitious folks, bring the fury. To find out more, click HERE!
