Aloha!
My name is Katlin. I have worked on various farms on the Big island and Kauai. I am currenting in California saving up money for a lease on the Big island.
My plan is to head back to the Big Island around Oct/Nov.
I am looking for a fellow permaculturist interested in sharing an ag lease.
The lease I'm looking at is $1000 an acre per year for cash crops. $50 acre a yr for livestock.
$300 a month for living on land.

No housing included. Car/truck recommended.. will prob haul water for a while.
This will be offgrid and tenting it. Its not super close to the beach.
I'd like to keep things simple. Split costs of farming and maybe a couple days a week we help each other out with projects. I enjoy working with others but I also enjoy my own space.
I could be open to sharing flocks and herds.
Clear and calm communication required
This is very short and sweet. Email for more details
Lets build a food forest!
Experience with farming in the tropics a huge plus
Experience with cocreating a perk
Refrences are appreciated

How many acres do you intend to lease? That seems like a pretty steep price. I have to wonder how much will be left for you in the end.

Is there any surface water or other secure water supply?

Hello!
I plan to eventually have a 2 acre market garden. Its not the cheapest lease but land is expensive on the hamakua coast. There is lots of rain on this side of island. I have not had chance to speak with land owner about water situation. But catchment is common so is ag land having old irrigation ditches left over from old sugar cane plantation days. The owner has 4000 acres to lease on hamakua and macnut orchard in puna for lease.
