My husband Seth and I are both very open-minded and genuine folks who are interested in just about everything there is to do with plants, farming, food, health and becoming more responsible and involved inhabitants on this beautiful planet Earth. We both love to laugh and are fun-loving, compassionate, and eager. We have a healthy sense of humor and love to see the light in every situation. We are both very easy going but motivated and driven to accomplish whatever task is at hand. My interests include nutrition, herbs, making jewelry, playing piano, and cooking. Seth likes doing mechanical work, playing the drums, playing cards
, fishing, and exploring new places. Together we like to travel, read, hike, mine minerals, watch documentaries, play music, and learn something new everyday.
We are spiritual. We are strong believers in the power of thought and that you can do anything if you put your mind to it. We believe in visualization and manifestation. We have faith in methods or beliefs that can't be explained rationally. We believe in the power of knowledge and learning.
It is our calling to work toward sustainability. We believe that it is completely possible to get everything you need from the earth and be responsible for the impact that we have on our environment. Our long term goals are to eventually obtain the knowledge and resources needed to have our own land that we could farm. We want to work the land in a responsible and sustainable way in order to not only provide for ourselves, but provide for our community. We also want to become teachers, so we can pass along our knowledge to others.
Seth and I are very close to having our degrees, both in the agriculture field. Seth was going for ag business and I was going for horticulture. We are about three semesters away from having our degrees but have come to see that there is no rush is obtaining them. We have had such classes as Vegetable Production, Landscape Design I/II, Farm Safety, Agricultural Mechanics, and Sustainable Agriculture. I really enjoyed the time I spent at Western but it seems as if I could be doing something more constructive and worthwhile. While I am not in school at the moment, I still put time into learning everyday. I am definitely ready to put what I have learned into action. We both agree that we can’t continue going deeper and deeper into debt while being stuck in Kentucky. I have a deep passion for plants and gardening
and seem to have a knack for it, it just makes sense to me. I had a job working on the university garden
crew doing the landscaping and maintenance on campus. I also worked as a Mentor Gardener for a non-profit group in Bowling Green, Kentucky called Kaleidoscope. Kaleidoscope is a community based youth development program that worked to bring about positive transformation by creating an environment where youth can engage important issues through the arts and contribute back to society. I was put in charge of establishing community garden plots for the surrounding neighborhood and also educational plots where I taught the kids in my class
how a garden works. Although Seth wasn’t on the payroll he was a huge help in all the physical labor and planning that such a project required. It was probably one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Seth has also had a lot of experience working for tree and lawn
service companies. He did general labor such as mowing and trimming, as well as repaired the equipment when needed.
So we're coming in at a 7.5, and with more information, we could quite possibly be a 9 or 10. Not sure if I wrote too much or if it even matters. Honestly, I just copied and pasted some info out of our WWOOF
profile to give you an idea of what we could bring to the table. Looking forward to the details.
