Hello good people!

I've been on a long hunt for meaningful work that's engaging and fun and also in alignment with my values. Ultimately, I'm hoping to co-create intentional community but understand that it may be another 5 years before anything gets off the ground. And in those 5 years? Why not start or join something that I can transfer directly into community. Here is what I'm thinking:

I would like to be a part of a business that turns people's lawns into food forests and permaculture gardens. I would like to be rooted in the Portland, OR area. And so I am looking for either people in that area who have already started this sort of business and would like another designer/implementer or people who would like to start one with me.

I'm 26, got my PDC last year and longing to put it to good use; hard worker and a lot of energy for good work. I've got a creative mind and hands that love being in the soil. I'm open to ideas, working with an established business or starting one. Let me know!
