Land Seeker Description

David and Lindsey are a young, driven couple looking to rent a home with available land to tend. We both graduated from Southern Oregon University in 2018 and have been living in Portland for a few years. David has been working as a 1 on 1 educational assistant for students with disabilities as well as an at home assistant for a child with disabilities. Lindsey most recently was the assistant manager of a health and wellness center prior to being laid off in the pandemic. She has utilized this time to pursue an apprenticeship with Marysia Miernowska studying herbalism and has committed to a second year of apprenticing beginning this upcoming Fall. We are both very passionate about connecting with the land, working hard, and learning how to tend to the land. Our ideal situation would be land we can rent and/or work for trade and also have some available space to grow and tend personal plants.

Describe your farming experience

Lindsey has been filling in at a small organic farm on the Gorge this spring and has been studying permaculture, composting, gardening, and harvesting over the past 10 months and is eager to get her hands in the dirt. We both have experience gardening and we are willing to work with plants and animals, and from personal gardens to full farm operations.


Are you currently farming?

What are your short term goals for the land

Our goal is to use this land to learn more about growing plants and their medicine, so that eventually Lindsey can pursue a business in herbalism.


What are your long term goals

We would love to own a home/land in the next 5-10 years where we can establish respective careers in herbalism and education.


Describe your housing needs
