Hi! I have been farming for 8 years and managed a large organic farm in Northern California for 3 years. I am looking for a land-based project to lend my skills and help build an enjoyable ecological environment. My ideal situation would be a collaborative effort to create a beautiful and productive environment for people to come relax, learn, stay, or AirB&B. I am looking for a live/work position, either housing provided in exchange for work, or hourly wage/monthly stipend and proximity to a town where I can work a side job is another option. I prefer to work with mostly perennials and would love to build you a no-till, year-round kitchen garden. I am hoping to eventually start an agri-tourism business, and would love to help someone who has this vision as well and needs a caretaker or gardener to beautify the place for guests. I am also an artist and would love to lend my creative skills to your projects.  Please contact me and I'll send you a resume with my relevant work experience. Thanks!

Are you hoping to get away this winter and need someone to look after your land with love?
I have been farming for 8 years and am now planning to leave the craziness of the SF Bay Area. I would like to make myself available as a responsible and knowledgeable farm/homestead sitter/caretaker this winter. I would like to be able to use some of the skills I have built for years, have a tranquil place to be in transition, and give you peace of mind while you are away. (I always had a trusted caretaker who gave me freedom to leave when I was a farm manager and I'd like to do the same for someone else.) I am available starting in the very end of December or early January 2021 onward. I will be traveling down to southern California so I am ideally looking in this region but I am open to other possibilities around California. I love to care for plants and animals and am looking for a way to get back to this work, but haven't found the path yet with land access being so expensive in this state. So yes, I am looking to buy some time to figure this out. I have worked on farms, ranches and gardens in Portugal, California, Mexico, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Costa Rica, and cared for dogs, cats, cows, chickens, rabbits, goats, monkeys etc. I am a 33 year old artist who had been farming for years and is now in transition and looking for where I would like to live for the next chapter of my life. You can check out my website www.brittanyeaton.com to become a little familiar with who I am and send me a message with your timeframe/expectations if I could be of service to you. Thank you for reading ! -B

Hello! I have been farming for 5 years and managing a large organic farm in Northern California for 3 years.

Exactly what I am searching for! Though I see this is an old post, I wonder if you still have space? Emailing you now!
I would love more details! Sounds like something I could definitely help out on. I am a traveling artist and certified permaculture designer, and I need a place to live/camp this winter. I intend to work on a series of paintings this winter, but I love to work outdoors and to design projects and gardens. The ideal situation for me would be having a place to stay where I can split my time between painting and gardening/designing/working outdoors! Email me if you'd like to discuss more !

Hey Tomas! I am definitely interested, though there are two setbacks in my reply. I don't have a car to get around, and I honestly don't have loads of experience working with babies, mostly just caring for babies in my own extended family. But besides that I do have a lot of paid childcare experience, and patience, and have lived and worked in similar situations as this. I am a certified permaculture designer and traveling artist, and I have worked on permaculture and organic farm projects around Northern California, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Portugal... I can email you my resume if you'd like to talk more!

I see that this was posted a few years ago but is there a chance you still need someone? This is exactly what I am looking for!

Hey everyone! I'm Birdie, an artist from the USA. I just started this campaign and am wondering if anyone out there is on a mission simillar to mine. I am traveling to gain experience to use in the future to teach permaculture design courses. I feel that art is such a great tool for teaching and am exploring ways this year to use my art skills to promote permaculture wherever I go! Has anyone else made this their own artistic mission? How do you use art to inspire others? I would love to see some fellow permie art! Check out my campaign if you'd like to receive some of my art from the road! Happy 2014!
