My fiance and I are packing up and heading west. Our intention is to find a beautiful spot of land to turn into our own market garden permaculture paradise. Life has taught us the value of patience and working together. Therefore, we are looking to help others that have the same goal. We're not seeking pay, and will have most of our tools with us. If this interests you then send me a message and tell us about your project

Copied from my Workaway profile:

My expertise is organization and leadership with a focus on getting things done. I'm a hard worker who is always thinking several steps ahead about how to deploy resources and get the project completed in the most effective and efficient way possible. I love a challenge, leading teams, making order out of chaos, and solving problems.

My interests are in permaculture, self-sustainability, alternative fuel and power, solar energy, organic farming techniques, and eco-housing. I value personal responsibility and self-reliance, and I love both learning new ways of doing things as well as teaching and passing skills on to others.

Skills:

Leadership

try looking through ic.org.....the premier website for intentional communities. It has listings that are searchable by location and by keyword. Most communities, especially the smaller ones in the starting-up stage, are always wanting young, skilled, balanced, able-bodied and minded people.....

We have an urban homestead and a home business selling herbal products in Eugene, we are in the process of buying land in the next month or so in the area. We have a tiny house in town that we rent, and when we get land we will have more work trade spaces open. reach out when you get to the area. Daphne eagletreeherbs.com

Joshua.

I have lots of places that would be appropriate for you to check out in our Port Townsend region. This includes opportunities to start your own business on someone's land. my personal favorite would be to join a land project we have just started in discovery bay. it has huge potential. a man just came onboard who is a professional rotational grazer. i am planning to plant out the space with 1,000s of trees. please call. i'd love to discuss it
