Hi Carol-

I spent a year in Coupeville on Whidbey Island, and I would recommend it. It is part of the rain shadow, so gets around half the amount of rain as seattle. The summers are surprisingly dry, with lots of fog coming off the sound and gorgeous afternoons, and the winters are cooler and more damp with regular drizzles. You might see one thunderstorm during the summer, but they are not often. Prevailing winds are common, but lots of room for micro-climates with rolling hills. The more south you go on the island towards Langley, the more wet and overcast it becomes- only part of Whidbey is technically under the rain shadow. You're constantly reminded of water's presence while also being grounded by Mt. Rainier, Mt. Baker, and the Olympic mountains on the horizon depending on which direction you look. Also, the people are great- tons of local producers, homesteaders, farmers (organic), artisans, musicians, etc. Couldn't talk it up more Happy plans to you!
Are you looking for help on your goat farm for 2014 and beyond?
I have just spent the last 2 full seasons interning on farms. Although they gave me amazing experience with vegetables, fruits, chickens and ducks, I am now desperately seeking to work with and learn from goats. My end goal is to have a sustainable off-grid (as much as possible) homestead, and I'm currently gathering the experience and confidence I need to make that happen. I already have extensive experience working with and taking care of a variety of domesticated animals and livestock, but I have not yet spent nearly enough time with goats. I also am a certified permaculture designer and would love to help with any other gardening or farming design and work under those principles.
I am looking for a farm who can give me hands-on experience with kidding, trimming hooves, milking, cheese and yogurt making, and everything in between. Full time employment is ideal, however I'm more than open to consider any apprenticeship or part-time work/live arrangements.
If you think I sound like someone you could use on your farm, let's start a conversation about your goats! Send me a message and I'll gladly give you more information. I look forward to talking with you, all the best!

Sincerely,
Meghan
Hey all-

I'm currently working on a farm on Whidbey Isalnd, WA from Tuesday's-Saturdays, so my Sundays and Mondays are free and open. I'm hoping to find any small jobs around the area to fill up my time and help supplement my low-income lifestyle. I have experience with weeding, harvesting, small tractors, tillers, animals, bed prepping, weed-removal, permaculture design, customer service, etc. Please spread the word around, and email me if you have or know of any work. I am available as soon as next weekend and through mid-November. My e-mail is meghanmjahnke [at] gmail [dot] com. Any help is extremely appreciated, thank you.

Cheers,
Megh

My partner and I are soon traveling from the east coast to live and work on a farm in the central coast of BC, Canada.

We plan to cross the border into Canada from Idaho, and are hoping to find a farm, homestead, community, family, etc. who are willing to host us for one night.

We will not expect any food, but would appreciate simple and warm accommodations.

We will have two cats with us, who are both very clean and litter-trained, but we have a pen that we can hold them in if closing them in a room or cabin is not desirable to you.

We plan to arrive in the area around March 12th.

We're more than willing to do any chores or work during our short stay, as we'd be more than grateful for your hospitality.

Please email us at meghanmjahnke [at] gmail [dot] com, or send a private message on permies.

Thank you so very much, we hope to hear form you soon. Much Peace,
