Overview

I am an eco conscious mid fifties female holistic social worker/organic farmer. I am looking for a farm share on an organic farm where I can do a garden gate/market garden or CSA boxes and do horticultural and animal assisted counselling and sustainable living workshops etc. I am a non-smoker. I am into living with simplicity and sustainably.

Experience

I have been a WWOOFer at several farms and I am also an educator/counsellor and am interested in sustainable living and bringing the educational component to my farm and to grow vegetables.

Partner(s)

Currently I wish to farm alone and am open to sharing farming with farm or land owners.

Farm Vision

A small hobby farm with organic veggies and CSA wellness boxes and chickens, goats, and sheep and homesteading. I would like to have a part time private practice from home and to offer workshops and community educational speakers to the farm.

Relationship with Farm Owner

I would love a situation where I can live on the farm in my own accommodations - to rent to own or as an exchange somehow. It must be an organic farm with a farmer(s) who are eco friendly and sustainable and who treat the animals humanely and ethically.
