Seeking partnership, Lease or Lease-to-Own: 10-50 acres (or plus) around Cottage Grove, OR


Land Seeker Description

Now, I am a social entrepreneur (or sustainable entrepreneur), aiming to self-sustaining living for myself, working partners, extended to all, in locals and communities. After years of academic research and educational program in sustainable development, my conclusion is that self-sustaining for livelihood in community-level is critical to make macro change. In 2017, I made the change to myself – relocated to Cottage Grove, Oregon. My desire is to start sustainable farming and community sharing (may begin sharing within a group of working partners).  I had engineering background in manufacturing systems, and after worked in multiple universities in research. To prepare for this shift, I took training in a community college in Construction Technology towards a carpentry . The skill learned could be useful for farming and building. One important thing to me is the pursuit of DAO towards spiritual integrity of ONE for all. Basically, it means just doing every good, according to available capacities, in every day for yourself, people associated with you, and all.
