I am a 26 year old self taught permaculture student who is going to take a few workshops on natural building this year at Aprovecho. I currently live in Veneta with my partner and newborn son. We currently do not have an rv/tiny house so trying to find out if there are other available living situations on your farm. We are both into living in a more intentional community setting and working on projects that make a difference. We have both volunteered in our communities and on a couple projects and enjoy the community feeling of working through cooperation together on projects that matter.
I would like to find out more information and possibly come out in the spring and just help out and meet everyone. My partner (Alyson) is currently finishing her masters thesis at OSU so we would not move out currently and if we would have to bring our own living quarters than that would take more time too, but both are interested. I also noticed that your farm website says you are in Coquile so that would be perfect for me to attend one of their workshops and not be far away from my family. I didn't see any mentioning of couples with young children so wasnt sure if that is an option. We also have one medium sized dog and 2 cats which are all very loving. Thank you for being part of the farming of the future and building community

I am a 35 year Permaculture enthusiast looking for work/trade options when I return to America. I've been serving in the Peace Corps in rural Zambia teaching farmers about agroforestry, soil and garden improvement and nutrition. I'm looking for a quiet place where I can grow food, live outside, enhance my permaculture skills, explore beautiful surroundings and hopefully enjoy this with a small community of like-minded folk. I prefer to camp in a tent outside (I've been living in a mud hut with no running water or electricity for 2 years so I am used to this). 20 hours a week sounds totally reasonable, leaving enough time to train for triathlons, which I plan on doing as well. I would be available to start in June. Let me know what you think.
