If you're hard working and passionate about a future in clean growing, we'd love to talk with you.
We are seeking people for spring 2016 with permaculture and farming knowledge that are ready to partner on a rapidly growing farm. We're Certified Organic and Bio-dynamic Certified. We are lucky enough to have a market that we are challenge to keep up with. I have my PDC and Advanced Permaculture Practicum and was lucky enough to spend a week with Sepp Holzer in CA for an Advanced Practitioner Workshop.

We are in southern VA, in a tiny county and have now reached a point where permanent farming partners just make sense. We have plenty of available land for anyone interested in settling down vs interning or Wwoofing. We have a 2 bedroom cottage (grey water system) for our guests that we're happy to share in exchange for seasonal help (6 month minimum) and/or for a couple folks to live in while we see if a longer term partnership works for both of us.

Here's a link to what we've accomplished so far and we welcome questions and input.

Hubby is a professional artist blacksmith & his shop is also on our farm.
