My name is Charles Batey and I am an aspiring forestry student at UC Berkeley. I am looking for some hands on experience in permaculture based agroforestry techniques (alley cropping, silvopasture, and other permaculture based techniques of harvesting from woodlands).

I will have two segments of roughly one month long in which I could work this coming summer (2011). I will be available from June 20-July22 or from July 25-Aug 19. I realize these are somewhat shorter than may be typical for work trade situations, however I already am obligated for the weekends before, after, and in between those dates.

I am a hard and smart worker and am approaching this situation with knowledge gained as a much higher priority than money made, so assuming adequate learning opportunities are available, i will require minimal if any pay. I am aware that within the WWOOF organization, room and board with a very minor stipend if any is pretty typical and i would be willing discuss something of that like.

I live in the north bay of San Francisco and thus anything around there would be extremely convenient, however I am quite willing to travel pretty much anywhere in English speaking North America if the educational opportunity presents itself.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post, and if you or anyone you know sounds compatible, please let me know.

Charles Batey

You may want to checkout the Mountain Homestead, in Coquille, OR.

*scroll down* for the ecoforestry apprenticeship information:

Good folks, lots to learn there, *and* they're neighbors with the Cob Cottage Company folks so there may be opportunities to learn a bit about what's going on over there as well.

Charles, did you ever find an agroforestry work trade?  I am also interested in a similar position.  Thank you!
