Duration: One full year starting late winter/ early spring 2016

For someone with at least one full year intensive horticulture apprenticeship or equivalent -

Housing & training for work-trade, a multi-tiered opportunity according to your situation:

1 day a week (the minimum) caretaking operations in exchange for own bedroom in UNM-area eco-homestead w/ native habitat, edible plantscape, orchard-gardens, bees, etc, plus occasional exposure to ecological design, specialty horticulture, regeneration forestry initiatives & participation in workshops

2nd day a week for seasonal training, cooperative membership, operations, harvest & income share from year-round Garden Starts CSA + neighbourhood Gardenshare

3rd day a week for seasonal training, cooperative membership, operations, pruning & grafting, harvest & income share from established Usufructus, Mediano, Fruitshare, and planned Appleshare & Chestnutshare orchards

4th day a week for seasonal training, cooperative membership, operations, container cultivation, income share from Edible Plantscapes nursery with over 600 high- & dry-land adapted fruit, nut, berry varieties

After successful year, re-up opportunity invokes away-stints: regeneration/ edibles forestry in NY, sub-tropical fruticulture in SoCal, drylands tree-cropping in Andalucia

This is an ecological homestead & drylands horticulture accelerator: the right candidate will carry away at a minimum experience to set out on their own, the right journeyperson will carry on with their own startup(s) calved-off my operations.

UNM North Campus neighbourhood homestead base & nearby Gardenshare yard + four orchards along the Valley, Edible Plantscapes nursery & Garden Starts CSA network

Please send a one-page statement of relevant background & experience, foreseen usefulness of journeyship to planned trajectory, specific skills & research pursuits to:

It would give a normal human mental abilities to rival mine. To think it is just a tiny ad:
Heat your home with the twigs that naturally fall of the trees in your yard
