I am currently in college from about 2pm to 5pm Monday-Thursday, and every other Friday (all day); but I am willing to dedicate all other hours to labor without pay in order to learn through farming experience. I am highly capable and willing to perform hard physical labor and long hours.
Hi Steve, My name is Candy Mills. I know this is an old post and don't know if you're still interested in voluteering. Life certainly changes in a year's time. I live in Norco and want to turn this place into a demonstration location and working farm on making a suburban half acre sustainable. Norco is an animal friendly town, geared mostly to horses, but it's a good sign that the high school has an ag program and an ffa group.
Please email me if you get this and are interested at email@example.com. There is a lot that needs to be done here and I work full time as well. I have my PDC from the online course geoff lawton did this year, attended the San Diego Permaculture Convergence last weekend and am going to attending the Permaculture Voices Conference next year. I listen Paul's podcast, and the the survival podcast " all the time" and just about any other podcast I can get my hands on that I can learn from. I find that even if I don't necessarilly agree with the podcast I can still learn something from it, even if it's what NOT to do.
If it sounds like we might work well together, I'd like to hear from you. Just send me an email and put permaculture in subject line.
Hope to hear from you soon. Candy
