Looking for a work/trade in Florida (building, gardening, etc)
posted 4 years ago
I've been living and working in Nicaragua, on the beautiful island of Ometepe, for a little over a year now. Getting acquainted with simple living and tropical permaculture. I took a PDC in February, but I wouldn't call myself a "permaculture designer" quite yet. My time at the farm has been split between hands-on farm work, and design and construction of a building for a local community center. I don't claim to be as tough as the Nicaraguans I've worked with, but I can definitely put in a good hard day's work.
Anyway, to cut to the chase, I'm moving back to Florida in November, partly to be close to family but also to hopefully apply some of my knowledge and keep working with the land. A simple work/trade for room and board would suit me just fine. My needs are simple; I've been living outdoors and eating a rice-and-beans-based diet and I'm doing OK...
I'm looking in other places, of course (WWOOF, helpx, etc.) but I wanted to see if y'all have any leads. Resume and references available on request.
Skills (in order of competence/confidence):
architectural design (my formal education)
website design & maintenance (I worked in this field for a year or so)
graphic design (also did some of this work as part of design school and my web design job)
natural building (lots of passion, little experience yet)
annual gardening/fruit orchards/forest gardening (same as above)
