My name is Lina, I am in the final stages of completing the design process for obtaining my PDC and have been using biodynamic and permaculture techniques to operate a small farm in Maine for the last two years. My landlords just gave me notice a few days ago that I have to move out and leave mid-season because they are selling the house and they need to work on it (even though my rent has always been promptly paid and I moved here under the pretense that this was a place to start a farm with no prior indication that they were ever considering selling.) I had been earning a living on my farm and now have no other means of income.

I have gathered enough funds to relocate, but I need to find work as soon as possible because I need to also find a place to live. I have experience raising chickens, ducks, and rabbits as well as producing organic berries, veggies, grapes, medicinal herbs, and apples. I have designed and implemented ponds with aquaculture systems, rain water harvesting systems that feed through drip irrigation, composting systems, raised no dig/no till beds, spiral beds and Hugelkultur gardens.

I am seeking paid opportunities as I will likely have to pay for offsite housing for my family to live in with all of our pets (I have a five year old son and my husband is a disabled veteran, in addition to livestock we have one rabbit and duck that my son keeps as pets and also have a puppy, a turtle, and a few cats.)

Please let me know if you are aware of any opportunities, I deeply appreciate any advice or suggestions anyone may be able to offer.
