Hello! I live in SW Portland, and I'm interested in volunteering on a farm or homestead nearby. I'm willing to do and learn anything that you need from me, including the less savory things involving manure, hard manual labor, etc.

I have two main considerations:

1) I work a retail job, so my schedule fluctuates. If you are a homesteader/farmer in need of ad hoc volunteering, that will work well for me. If you only accept volunteers on Saturdays or some similar situation, I won't be able to help as much as you or I would like, but I may still be interested.
2) I primarily transport myself via bus and bike. If you are well served by busline that comes within a few miles of your place, I'd love to volunteer for you. If getting to your farm by some combination of the two would take over 2 hours, it would make for a really long day.

I know that those are not necessarily the best situations to be in as a volunteer, but it is my current situation, and I can't help that I'm still powerfully interested in getting involved with a local farm and helping them out. If you think we might be a good fit for each other, please get in contact with me.
