Hey folks, Cool Grove Organic Farm is looking for a little bit of help from some new friends this summer. Located in the Coast Range about 40 minutes from Eugene, Oregon, Cool Grove is a permacuture paradise that specializes in fruit, berries, nuts, veggies and gourmet mushrooms. I'll need some help this summer with housekeeping/cleaning, harvest, pruning, weed-wacking/weeding, watering, maybe house-sitting. Prefer hard-working, energetic, spiritually-minded hippie-types that have a keen interest in permaculture, mushrooms, organic horticulture. Fringe benefits include free fruit trees and berry plants; free fruit, grapes and berries; as well as free guitar lessons. Learn how to propagate new fruit trees/grapes/berries; wildcrafting of berries, fruit and mushrooms; cider production; meditation; musical improvisation . Pay is negotiable, internships possible, or just stop by the farm some time for some free fruit or a jam session!

If this sounds like something of interest to you, please purple moosesage (PM) me with questions and a little about about yourself and your location. We'll take it from there. Thanks!

I couldn't seem to pm you (new to the site) but my name is josh, I'm mid twenties and plenty able bodied, living in Kansas city.
I'm seeking an internship at a farm because I am tired of the city snd have basic gardening and irrigation system knowledge, and I am looking to expand upon that.
Your post piqued my interest when you stated you were into mycology, as I have only small amounts of book related know how in the field.
I'd appreciate the chance to chat, and discuss options for taking on a n extra hand, feel free to email me @ jscraiglow@gmail.com

I've been getting replies from some really cool people from all around the planet, but I should have mentioned in my original post that I'm just looking for seasonal, part-time help here from someone who already lives locally in western Oregon and can come out to the farm for a several hours a week during the summer. This is not a full-time, year-round job. I'm sorry if this wasn't clear originally! However, if you live in Oregon, then please PM me, because I'm still looking! Thanks to everybody who has replied so far! Peace, M.K.

M.K.,

I am interested in finding out more about the location of your farm near the coast. I currently live in Corvallis,OR and have been looking for some work/internship on a farm that is more connected with permaculture than the ones that are in my area. I have read The designers manual, Gaias garden, and several other permaculture related books. I have not yet done a PDC, but most likely will in the fall, although I really just want to get more hands on learning from those with more experience than I.
I have a couple years of working on a organic farm and have a decent size garden right now. I'm a very hard worker or is very trust worthy as any of my references will probably tell you.
Would enjoy talking more you and coming out and seeing the farm sometime. You can reply to me on here or my email oriardpowder@yahoo.com

Thanks,
Ian

Hey there,

I'd love to learn more about your place. My girlfriend and I are seeking work trade opportunities, beginning late September, ideally in the Pacific Northwest. We would love to gain skills around maintaining a bed and breakfast, farming, and animal care.

About us, I currently run public programs and marketing at an eco-education center (www.theecologycenter.org) that is rooted in permaculture. I am a writer and have experience in teaching, writing web content, marketing, connecting people and more. My girlfriend is a professional chef. She is of course great at cooking, as well as baking, preserving, interior design, animal care and more.

If our combined skill sets pique your interest, please email me at jdavis4321@gmail.com

I'd appreciate it. Thanks so much!

Jeff
