>> Established Cooperative Farm Based Community Seeks Permaculturist <<
Location: PNW - Temperate Rain Forest!
Yup, we are the real deal. We own outright a few hundred acres in a 700,000 acre national forest west of the Willamette Valley. Its in a temperate rain forest. USDA zone 9A! About 75 acres of the property is non-woodlands. Multiple streams run thru the property. Basically heaven on earth. There is a 2 acre fenced in garden (elk & bear proof); 2 acre fenced in mature orchards (same); multiple residences; greenhouses; shops; hay fields, animals, etc. We have well established non-farm income. Basically we are as together as one might reasonably hope for.
Our head gardener is leaving in a few months (to deal with family illness). So we are looking for someone/couple to join us in our little corner of the world in order to take his place and continue the work of switching our operations from traditional methods of food cultivation to a permaculture based approach. You will have up to 4 people working under your guidance.
Desirable candidates will have verifiable experience in both gardening/permaculture (experience which demonstrates a proven work ethic, follow thru & results largely free of day-to-day-managerial oversight); as well as experience living and working with other folks.
We offer: non-funky housing; prepared civilized meals; monthly stipend; community wide wireless internet; free vehicle usage; supportive, enriching community culture; proximity to urban services & culture; proximity to the ocean; and more.
Also, we are always
looking for people with construction skills; and/or farming skills. Thanks!
