野蔓園是一個實踐樸門永續設計(Permaculture)的教育型農場,更是一個自主生活的訓練中心。因為現今的環境,為了讓大家生活「方便」、「快速」,反而造成地球與其他生物的不方便,同時也讓人們失去了許多生存的技能、與自然共處的經驗與智慧。在這樣的定位下,來到野蔓園的生活,就不會是「他人幫你準備好的舒適生活」,而是任何你想得到的食、衣、住、行等生活事物都必須自己做與學習。

[野蔓園自主學習四部曲]
1.    照顧自己:熟悉環境、了解如何解決自己的基本需求。
2.    照顧他人:用照顧自己的方式照顧別人的需求,特別是農場的工作都需要分工合作,每個人都必須找到發揮己力的方式。
3.    解決問題:主動提問,你會學習到更多東西。但提問前,請先自行思考與觀察,或是提出解決方案,我們會有更棒的互動!所有的問題都是正面資源,也都是答案。
4.    回饋分享:將自己的經驗或心得分享給下一位換工或是有興趣了解野蔓園生活的人,以及想一想在離園之前,如何可以讓野蔓園更好,並動手實踐它。

一、工作項目
1.    時時觀察:請從觀察自然與周遭環境裡的人、事、物。
2.    澆水:每日必做的基礎功,練習專注與觀察力,同時可以認識多種香草與藥用植物,與植物作朋友。
3.    農耕事務:
    輕體力:如植物換盆與修剪、育苗、收集田間乾燥木頭
    中體力:如割草、種植、劈柴
    粗體力:如搭建自然建築、挖灌溉水道
4.    每餐收集食材:每天認識一種野生的可食植物
5.    吃一種三:吃一顆菜,請種回三顆來分享,一顆歸還野蔓園,一顆歸還大地(如蟲也需要吃),一顆回饋給下一位。現在你所享受的食物,也是前人努力所留下的,同樣請愛惜物資和心懷感激,尊重環境與傳愛他人。
6.    撿柴、劈柴:槓桿原理的最佳練習,可認識不同材質的木柴,提升肌耐力。絕對不要空手回到生活區。
7.    烹煮:學習料理自己的三餐(蔬食),或輪流為他人準備伙食;更可以發揮料理創意,「沒有廚藝沒關係,但要有誠意」。
8.    不定期任務:工作坊課程備課、文字或影像記錄、網站管理、新換工接待、手作季節性農產品、窯烤麵包、環境整理…

二、換工條件:

2.    野蔓園使用火箭爐、土灶與麵包窯來製作三餐(視人數與需求而定),換工須自理或與其他換工一起打理三餐,農場所生產的食材皆可使用。
3.    園主並未居住於園內,欲留宿者,需有獨自一人住宿的心理準備。
 
四、自備物品:
1.    睡袋、寢具、蚊帳
2.    輕便工作服:長褲長袖較佳
3.    防曬衣帽
4.    工作鞋:這裡有前人留下的共用雨鞋
