Im Looking for a place where i can practice and learn about earthworks on a large scale.  Dams, terracing, ponds, and grain successions.  I have implemented a food forest design for my friends backyard.  He is now very interested in permaculture, so i feel comfortable leaving it to him and move on experimenting some more.  The knowledge i gain from earthworks will be used to restore the mountian top removal sites in Kentucky.  I have worked Concrete for 6 years so i know about hard work. Work me sunrise to sunset.  As long as i am doing something that will benefit the whole i will not mind.  I attended a wilderness college, learned about primitive survival, tracking, wild medicinal/edibles, teaching nature with children (love interacting with children)  Permaculture, and so much more.  Would love to find a place where knowledge is exchanged.  Please feel free to contact me if you are looking for a hard worker who wants to help work/learn permaculture/natural farming methods on a large scale.  Much love, Cedar.

Hi Cedar,

We have 9 acres in Rome GA that need some Earth Works - water drainage issues in particular.  We have been living on the land and have intended to start permaculture farming, but haven't had the time as we both home school our kids  and work PT.  We have the potential for swales, maybe a pond or 2.  We have a creek at the far end of our property.

We have a tenant moving out of our 3 BR/2BA mobile home - with heat/air.  Would you be willing to work for lodging?

If you're interested email us at kristin.verrill at gmail.com.

Kristin and Brent
