I have a 8.5 acre natural farm in Southern Louisiana. I'm trying to expand get into production and would like someone to work with me for exchamge for room and board. We can explore other options after we see if things work out. I travel to LA for weeks at a time and am looking for some to share a 5 bedroom house with me and hold down the fort while I'm away. I could use the help planning and implementing a working farm. I am 60 miles from New Orleans. Things are easy and laid back in this area. I am inspired by Fukuoka and forest garden approaches. Currently I have a mature orchard producing satsuma, navel orange, cumquat, red and white mulberry, and still planting many other species. Marketing options to sell to local coop or put together our own CSA. Welcome to eat as much from the land as you can fill and even a personal garden if you wish. I plan to have bees in the near future also. I have a vision that enough food can be grown here to take care of all our needs and many other people. I' m a RN and a Practioner of Reams Biological theory of ionization of human health and would like to apply his principles to the soil to help change the health of people in the area.

The property is on the Bayou and also has a 2.5 acre pond that is great for fishing and swimming after a long day in the dirt. Household is vegetarian but respectful of others choices.as long as it is not cooked in the house. I have 2 big lovable Portuguese Water Dogs that need love and attention when I'm away.

I 've been away from the farm for 8 years and have been living in LA and have returned to do what I dream about ....while I talk about it in LA. I'm ready for company that is hard working, up beat, happy, and kind.

10% of earnings from the sales of produce off the farm can be pocketed by you. Need help moving it. Looking for someone motivated and likes to teach. The present orchard is 1 acre and has crops in the spring, early summer and winter. I have started seed ball plantings and ground cover crops in selected areas to experiment. Would like help turning the whole acreage into a forest garden .

Denise,

Please contact me, longview06@hotmail.com. 26 year old from Mississippi, stuck in Dallas TX, trying to get back to the south where I belong. I currently am working full-time here but the city life just isn't for me. I'm more interested in working with the earth, working with my hands, a productive living. Too much waste in the city. Time and resources alike. More than willing to visit and meet with you whenever convenient before any decisions are made. Please contact me via email and we can discuss this further. I am looking to leave Dallas as soon as possible!

PS Everything you have going on sounds great can't wait to speak with you!

Christian
