If you are starting to gather medicinal and edible plants, and also need a really great job, then please consider this: There is a position about to open at a university in the Pacific Northwest (WA) as the Garden Supervisor. It's a permaculture system featuring more than 200 species of medicinal and edible plants. I held this job about 15 years ago and brought home one of everything, as well as a generous portion of the harvest. I GOT PAID TO SET MYSELF UP!! The job will be posted in a couple of weeks publicly, but I wanted the Permies to hear about it first. My homestead today is a paradise of resiliency and abundance, and I must give full credit to that chapter of my life dedicated to learning, service, stewardship, and more learning. I am also delighted to say that the only reason this job comes open is that the wonderful individual who does it reaches a pinnacle moment when they realize it's time to move upward and onward. The exiting supervisor always stick around for training, mentorship, encouragement... What a solid opportunity for someone making a hard decision about how to begin! (and it pays ok with benefits) jdazey@bastyr.edu for more info.

Absolutely! jdazey@bastyr.edu. I've gotten a few resumes already, and plan to set up Zoom interviews next week. PLEASE apply! What a terrific opportunity for a Permie to generate abundance.

Hey there!  I have a similar job in a similar organization and I'm wondering if I could see the job description again (as I'd like to advocate for myself for higher income and it'd be nice to know what a comparable job pays).  The link posted is no longer live...  
 
Arch enemy? I mean, I don't like you, but I don't think you qualify as "arch enemy". Here, try this tiny ad:
