They wish that someone would take care of it, so they ask me if I'd grow on their land. I turn down more offers than I accept. If I was taking care of any more fields, I'd have to hire help, and that doesn't appeal to me. I paid rent the first few times, but I have since learned that land is a burden to it's owners. Many would even pay me to take care of their land for them.

Crown resource lands may be used for a variety of purposes under a lease, permit, easement or licence that allow the legal occupation or use of the land. Examples include:
- Remote recreational cottage;
- Traditional resource use cabins;
- Commercial and industrial operations; and
- Wild rice harvesting.
Leases are generally longer term dispositions that allocate lands for particular use. Permits are shorter term authorizations that grant access to the land for a specific purpose.
