As Old Man Winter spews his icy squalls, we crave the golden summer season at PLAND. What are your plans once the snow melts?

If you are a worker, maker, thinker, or doer who brings self-awareness, experimental processes, and creativity to what you do – and PLAND sparks some ideas for you – then we encourage you to apply to and participate in our 2013 summer programs.

We believe that a place is made by living in it and so the 2013 Summer Residency Program is focused on completion of PLAND's Main House. We invite you to help us continue building and making PLAND by proposing a project that will increase on-site livability for visitors and future residents. Residencies span two to four weeks between June and September. Teams and collaborators are encouraged to apply. Click here to learn more and to download the application.

There is no formal application process for the 2013 Building Program. Instead PLAND takes RSVPs for related events such as work parties and workshops. The 2013 Work Parties take place May 31 – June 4 and Sept 18 – 22. Contact PLAND anytime after January 20 for more information and to RSVP.

The Special Projects Program allows for projects and events that do not necessarily fit into the parameters of either the Residency or Building Programs, yet mirror the creative and innovative spirit of both. Applications to this program are primarily by invitation and often coincide with specific funding possibilities. Anyone who is interested in receiving more information may contact PLAND anytime after January 20.

Although humble, rugged, and not without its plentiful share of hardship, we offer you the opportunity to get in touch with the basics. Water, food, shelter, fire, weather, people, time, and space – all of these elements become the daily luxuries in which we invite you to indulge.
PLAND is a multidisciplinary organization that supports the development of experimental and research-based projects through a variety of on and off-site programs. Headquartered off-the-grid in Tres Piedras, New Mexico, PLAND is a hands-on, exploratory approach to Do-It-Yourself, alternative living.
