If I can’t change the world, I at least want to be proud of the way I live.

Land Seeker Description

Hello, I am 23 and I have already seen too many horrors in this world. I want the chance to learn how to live of land that I care for and in return takes care of me. Ideally, I would start off with a mentor who can give me work on their farm and eventually own my own land and put to use whatever experience I have gained. I am passionate about permaculture and providing for as many beings as possible. I believe that al we need in life is each other and I would be grateful for the opportunity to start taking step towards the life I want to live.


What features of the property are essential?

The more I can do with the land, the better.


Describe your farming experience

My experience, so far, is limited to back yard gardening. I had very successful tomato and squash harvests this past year.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

The first step, I want to take, is working on someone's existing farm or help start one to gain experience with agricultural design and if possible building sustainable housing.


What are your long term goals

After gaining experience and resources to acquire land, I dream of starting a non-profit that supports a large ranch that is designed with a permaculture lens. On the land I would have sustainable housings that will be used for AirBnB, a barn to rent for parties and ceremonies, a restaurant and still have enough space left over for an animal sanctuary.


Describe your housing needs

I am looking for something close by so that I can finish my apartment lease and then eventually move on the land that I own.
