Land share Nelson BC area

I have a couple of very workable acres North of Nelson BC.

There is a couple on the land already that are using a TINY portion of a garden in a mono culture fashion.

There is a separate cabin next to the lands water source, there is power to the cabin. There is also a screened in room with a hanging bed next to the stream that runs through the place. Very nice cool sleeping in the summer. Tall ceilings and lots of natural light in the cabin.

I started on the land and then my health took a curveball. I'm out of commission for 3 or 4 days at a time and I wont be on back on the land anytime soon.

I'm so sad to just see it sit and I'm hoping someone is interested in a land share share situation in exchange for being respectful, and working towards establishing premies style system on the land. I'm extremely hesitant to post this as I've recently had a very bad experience with trying to do this that ended in being physically assaulted. However not all humanity shall be judged by his standards, just understand my caution isn't personal.

I'm not interested in micromanaging the person who works the land. I only ask systems be established in a thoughtful, sustainable manner.

There are cleared are ready to go spaces right now.

I've attached a couple of pictures there is a whole lot more to the place will add more photos

My name is dakota.
Your land looks beautiful & im sorry with what happened with your trying to share land in the past, thats more than awful.

Yes, Im dakota, Im 22 and am currently partners in crime with a young man from quebec, Vincent (28) We are currently living in cawston BC , rather close to you and have been working for the past six years on a large fruit orchard working grapes, apples and peaches. I run the veggie gardens that feed the family/ workers on the farm and vincent does heaps of work all around. We have been looking into starting a project of our own for some time now. When ever the season ends in BC we usually pack up and head somewhere else where farming is still an option. Cental america, Australia are a few of the places we went the last couple of winters. And in doing this we have seen some amazing farms and gained experience that school and book just doesnt offer.

We are rather intimidated by the idea of starting something of our own but in the best of ways. We know we have the knowledge to do and cant wait to see all our past years put to work.

Would love a chance to talk to you more. Please feel free to ask any questions!

Hope all is well

dakota Varen

Hey, it's been a while since this was originally posted. I was just wondering if you are still continuing with this project? I'm interested in doing something like this and I'm not entirely sure how many people are doing things like this in the region. This is the first thread of this sort (and in the area) that I've seen so I'm responding to this one firstly! If you'd rather message me privately, I'd be more than willing to talk to you via that method

Hopefully talk to you more about this soon!
