Hi all,

Starting a small 8.5 acre farm in South Louisiana using ideas of permaculture, forest gardening, polyculture approaches. Heavily inspired by the work of sepp holzer. Starting from the ground up, literally. Have community shared housing for trade for enthusiasm, brain power, and muscle power. Taking applications now for possible start up by early or late fall. Would like to create a CSA structure for crop management with distribution. Presently on land is a 2.5 acre established pond (this pond has been stocked with fish but presently out of balance), 20 tree citrus orchard, a few fruiting mulberries, blackberries, many mature native species hard wood trees. Running along side of property is a small bayou populated with abundant wildlife. Looking for individuals experienced in starting business from the ground up, working with a CSA, and permaculture and forest garden approaches. Thibodaux is a rural city rich in Cajun culture and warm hospitality. It's also a starving community in regard to organically grown produce and methods of sustainable life giving approaches to farming and land stewarding. We are 60 miles from New Orleans.

You can reach me at microbesfirst@gmail.com for more information.

Hi Denise,

I would be interested, though I may not meet your qualifications.

I have business management experience, though not in a relevant field. I have moderate general gardening experience, some experience in construction, and fair permaculture book knowledge.
