Farm opportunity

We are interested in someone who shares our passion for ecological restoration, nature conservation, and sustainable resource use. Opportunity here for someone to learn multiple rural arts & woodland skills (and to start their own forest-grown shiitake mushroom production on our land). We are interested in progressive mentorship (beginning with occasional/introductory work leading to potential MOU/partnership, and – if there is synergy and continued interest on part of apprentice/partner – long term opportunity for residency and a good country life.
