Seeking Highly Motivatated Community-Oriented Folks with Interest (and Ideally Experience) in Farming and Homesteading


We live on 23+ acres of mostly level land near the town of Cave Junction.  We currently have about an acre of land in active cultivation with deer fencing and irrigation. The land has been improved and developed by present land stewards for over 15 years now, and the founding landowner has 25 years of intensive agricultural and rural country living experience.  Relevant experience and skills are required, though some mentoring may be possible for exuberant and naturally talented individuals who happen to be highly compatible with us.    Interested folk must have very good communication/social skills, (experience living and/or working in collectives a plus), a strong desire to steward a very special chunk of land, and lots of energy, talent, and/or experience to grow food for subsistence, charity, and/or market… Very affordable shared housing is available… I have tools galore including sub-compact tractors and a skid-steer loader.  We are progressive-minded folks socially, politically, and environmentally, and grow according to strict Organic standards.

What are you doing as a landholder to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for everyone on your land and in your community?

I have been steeped in values for most of my adult life that are embedded in the notion that radical social transformation of our society is not only possible, but that there is really no other choice. As such, I have been directly involved and continue to support various movements for social and environmental justice. Additionally, i have been involved with forming, building and sustaining community organizations for over thirty years. While i have lots of reasons to be jaded and cynical, I maintain a strong commitment to building relationships built on foundations of respect, empathy, and good communication.
