Just touching base with the community, I am a 36 year old as is my partner. We will be blessed with the birth of a daughter this week, Violet, and we have a beautiful rhodesian who is my side kick.
I have been a general contractor my entire life, as well as freelance auto mechanic, entrepreneur, artist and dream chaser. I am confident in my ability to build or fix anything I touch, but where I excel is in my ability to network and find customers and value added products.
I am a mycophile of sorts, familiar with sterile culture techniques and love everything there is about mushrooms.
I discovered this page and realized that I didn't want to wait until I was 60 to hope I can afford a piece of land and live my life the way I dream. Instead I am looking for a stable roof over my familes head and the opportunity to develop sweat equity in my life instead of adding it to someone elses. I want my child to eat healthy food that I know where it came from, I want her to learn work ethic and morals in a family environment instead of from a video game and a public school.
If you are seeking a dedicated partner, not just a weekend warrior, please contact and lets talk.

I'm looking for some beginning permaculture farmers who seek mentoring and the opportunity to try out their own business in a supported homestead environment. I'm co-founder of Terra Genesis International, and teach permaculture at Greenfield Community College in western Massachusetts. Baby is certainly welcome although we have a Violet here too, 3.5 years old.

> Permaculture homesteading and business mentoring opportunity -Searching for 4 special talented caring people.
> Please share this with friends who might be interested. We are searching for 4 individuals with an interest in collaborative homesteading or developing their own earth based regenerative business. The opportunity comes with the option of some consistent professional mentoring. Home/Landowner is offering a farming/permaculture business mentoring situation on a 6 acre homestead in Ashfield. Cost for the on-site residential option is $450/month but you keep all that you earn from your business to help offset this cost.
>
> Applications are due Nov 15th. Send brief letter of interest stating why you are interested along with your resume to mejinwesternmass@gmail.com. There are 4 residential positions available, and participants will live together in a communal household and manage the 6 acres while working on developing their own permaculture/farm business with assistance from the landowner and the other participants. Non-residential participation is also possible.

The optional coaching can include business plan development, Holistic Management'TM, advanced topics in permaculture, marketing and hosting an onsite Permaculture Design Certificate course, as well as PDC teaching experience.

We are searching especially for someone with a passion for regenerative livestock rearing and beekeeping, someone who has experience and interest in culinary arts/value added products and medicinal plants, someone with gifts in marketing, farm based tourism and education. Also open to other innovative creative entrepreneurs with other interests.

People from diverse backgrounds and traditionally under represented groups highly welcomed.

My friend and I have some things in the making. If you would like send me a message and we can talk and see if we would have similar ideas and such. Atleast maybe help manifest stuff.

We're in southern Maine creating a permaculture-focused homestead/small farm and are seeking co-stewards. Much accomplished including barn, root cellar and extra cabin. Much more to do and we are open to the ideas and dreams of others.

If you're interested in a conversation, get in touch: Cheryl & Kirk vanwish@netpenny.net
