ASBMB Certified BS in Biochemistry from the University of Montana in May 2019!
Permaculture is my passion, and I intend to gain hands-on experience in permaculture and make the world a better place! It's time enough to stop being angry at the bad guys and get to work making a new world!
At the moment, I am currently looking for farms, intentional communities, and ecovillages that I could be a part of, so that I can get hands-on experience and practical knowledge of permaculture.
I am always available for hire for any in real life or online projects. Just make me an offer, and we can start talking.

Summary
New Society Publishers says, "Humans have always thrived in rich, diverse, edible ecosystems. Yet most cities and suburbs are blanketed by lawns, ornamentals, and a lack of biodiversity, let alone anything edible. It is within these sterile landscapes that seeds of an edible ecosystem lie.

The Edible Ecosystem Solution is a comprehensive, practical guidebook that looks at underutilized spaces to reveal the many opportunities for landscape transformation that are both far-reaching and immediately beneficial and enjoyable."

About the Author
New Society Publishers says "Zach Loeks is an educator, designer, and grower who specializes in Edible Ecosystem Design through landscaping and education. He is director of the Ecosystem Solution Institute, which is dedicated to the education, propagation, and inspiration of ecosystem solutions for land use transition. He consults widely with homes, farms, colleges, schools, and municipalities across Canada and United States, and through many biomes from Guatemala and South Africa to the Yukon and Mongolia."

This aspect has a strong focus on reassuring Otis that you will not simply cash out what you inherit - even when times get tough.  

Otis is looking for somebody who will have a relationship with this land, all day, 365 days a year.   Not somebody that leaves for 40 hours a week.  Nor somebody that leaves for even one day a week for a job (or managing a booth at the farmer’s market).  A dedicated, on-site relationship with the land.  

Demonstrate the ability to be financially self-sufficient without leaving the land.
