Aloha All,

Patrick (33) and Savanah (25) here. We're on the search for exciting opportunities as the certified organic farm we currently manage on Maui is for sale and we need to find a new home! We've been farming and practicing/studying permaculture for 8+ (Patrick) and 5 (Savanah) years. We have experience ranging from small-scale homestead farming to large scale production farming. We've each had farm management experience managing crews, nursery, education and training, etc. We have experience working with chickens, ducks, and goats. Patrick has experience with tractors and Savanah has hand pushed rototiller experience although we have a preference for low-impact or a no till approach. Patrick has farmed in the NE, Florida, Louisiana, and Hawaii while Savanah has experience primarily in Hawaii and some experience in Washington State and California. We have experience with community living and enjoy both small town and city life.

Patrick has a love for all things permaculture. He's truly happiest in the field working to create something that is not only functional, but beautiful and harmonious. He loves to teach and learn and is truly passionate about making COMPOST. Patrick has experience working with adults with developmental disabilities on farms, art projects, and daily care.

Savanah enjoys working in the field and in he nursery as well as working in the kitchen. She loves to bake bread and pastries, ferment foods and beverages, pickle and preserve foods, dehydrate, and cook. She enjoys making herbal body products including soap, sunscreen, salves and balms, lip balms, face masks, body scrubs, etc.

We're interested in value added enterprising whether that be value added food products, value added body products, etc. We're also interested in education and food justice. We live a pretty quiet life, enjoy reading, chess, tennis, biking, hiking, music, art. Preference for Western U.S. as most of our family is in Northern California and Arizona, but open to all opportunities.

Thanks for reading!

You know, a lot of Hawai'ians end up in Texas...

These guys just hosted a Darren Doherty REX course this spring and are quietly looking for long-term team members: http://www.integratedacres.com/

Broad acre, 200+ acres, I keep telling him he needs a value added alligator farm.

Aloha, good luck!
