Grant of $5,000 or grant of $7,000 to a USA individual or couple to steward a land management program in Magdalena, New Mexico. The program will include water conservation and fire control. Free accommodations will be provided to the grant recipient.

Grant recipients will live on site in a canyon above the small town of Magdalena, NM from April through September 2019. The successful candidate/s will receive hands on mentoring by two local experts in the fields of geology and fire control. This grant provides both academic as well as a hands-on practical learning experience and includes off-the-grid, rustic, accommodations with an option to stay on for free.

Preference will be given to a couple.

The successful candidate/s will be responsible for the hands-on stewarding of a 40-acre sanctuary surrounded by the Cibola National Forest in New Mexico during April-September 2019. They will be required to:

- Physically implement natural rainwater harvesting methods designed to prevent and repair water erosion whilst at the same time having the dual function of helping with fire control management.
- Volunteer for the local fire service, attend meetings and shadow a current fire volunteer.
- Attend two workshops in natural building and learn how to build using adobe/cob.

The tools they would be required to use during the period of this grant would be ladders, a dolly, wheelbarrow, shovel, fork, pick, pruners, and saw (possibly a chainsaw). They will also be responsible for the upkeep of these tools, ensuring their proper maintenance.

The candidate/s will document (both photographically and in writing) their work with the aim of being published in a scientific journal so that their work can benefit society as a whole.
