Lease /Lease to own/ Partnership


Land Seeker Description

I am a motivated recent graduate of a horticulture degree and am looking for opportunities related to Greenhouse Operations and Management, Controlled Environment Agriculture, Native and Ornamental Plant Production, Organic Farming and Fruit Production, Ecological Restoration, Public Park and Landscape Design, scientific research, and the development and support of educational projects.

I have spent the last two years earning an AAS in horticulture and a certificate in Plant Health Care while working a few jobs as a production associate at a  plant nursery, as a habitat restoration specialist contractor, and as an intern at an Educational Fruit Orchard Non-Profit. I am a Friends of Trees Restoration Crew Lead Volunteer.

I switched to horticulture after a decade in the Portland culinary scene

I am looking for the right opportunity to begin a development stage of a business plan related to these endeavors. A Plant Nursery. Leasing fruit trees.
