in permaculture principals to help establish a small town property in the NC foothills for sustainability. At present this one acre is a clean slate with only a very old house, a shed and a few raised beds. Offering room, board and small monthly stipend for those interested. There is electricity, plumbing and computer access. I do work full time and at present am secondary caregiver to two small grandchildren. Although my family had large organic farms when i was a child, i am relatively a newbie. There is an actual plan on paper, not written in stone of course. I am hoping to find 2 people interested in sharing their knowledge and capabilities to help us have healthier lives.
My partner and I are looking for an opportunity this upcoming Spring to learn and practice permaculture. I am a carpenter's helper and my partner currently works on an organic vegetable farm. Neither of us have substantial hands on experience implementing a permaculture design, but we both read extensively on the topic and are eager to try translating theory into practice. If you wouldn't mind having relative novices working for you, we would be very excited to help with a project like this.
We plan to be traveling by bicycle in your area this upcoming Spring. At the moment our plans are very flexible. If you would be interested in hosting us for a week or more we would be happy to trade labor for housing and meals.
My partner and I are looking for work of this sort, if you are still looking for help for the rest of this summer and through the fall. I am from Portland, Oregon and have much experience working growing vegetables and various fruits. I have a degree in Soil Science and have worked in agriculture in California, Hawai'i, and in Chile. I have some experience in permaculutre through helping on the farms of friends, as well as through a permaculture club at my university. My partner is Chilean, and has grown up working the land all of his life. we are both passionate sustainable agriculturalists, and would greatly love to help with this project of yours. We have experience with all sorts of plants and animals, as well as experience for preserving the harvest for the colder winter months as well. Would you still be interested in having help this time of year?
