My mate, our best friend, and I are looking for a new opportunity. With 15 + years of apartment maintenance experience under his belt, my mate can pretty much do just about any kind of handyman type repair job including some wiring, plumbing, and minor construction. (As long as it doesn't involve the roof or the foundation, he can pretty much do it.)

Our best friend and I are both plant and garden minded and we both trained in landscape horticulture and design when we were in our 20’s. Sure, we are a little bit rusty, but we can learn or relearn as the case may be. So the three of us are looking for a property care-taker position somewhere. If anyone has any info on an opportunity like this, please feel free to let us know.

Any help would be appreciated. We would like to stay away from commercial property care-taking though, like apartment complexes and cemeteries, but private property care-taking would be right up our alley. (Especially if the owners are permaculture minded.) Please share this post with anyone you think might be interested. Oh, we would like to stay in the Pacific Northwest, but other than that we are wide open for relocating if need be. The three of us also have varied interests that include but are not limited to goats, chickens, pigs, cob building, home brewing, bee keeping, aquaculture, and general permaculture design.

If this is posted in the wrong place, could someone please let me know and or help me move it to the right place? Thanks much,

Kat

I have reported your thread (and the previous one) to bring it to the attention of the moderators.

I think you have setup a good strategy to find opportunities by trying to get word to spread through social networks. A few other places to look might include:
Permie Jobs Twitter
Permaculture Global
Ecovillage Database

Reported it, have I done something wrong? I don't think I broke any of the rules, did I? Um... thank you for the resource links, but could you tell me what is wrong with my thread that it needed to be reported please? Thanks much,

Kat

There was nothing wrong with your post. Reporting a thread is for more than just bad stuff. If there are issues, like double posting, think a thread deserves an apple, a thread belongs in multiple subforums, etc.

Sorry for not making that clearer in the first reply.

Ah, okay thank you. I'm always so nervous about breaking rules. I really love permies but I'm never sure if I word things correctly or post them to the right place. Thanks much and take care,

Kat
