Land Seeker Description

Aloha! I am a avid gardener /farmer /herbalist. I have been growing and establishing gardens since 2009. I have lived on several intentional communities on Maui, northern Cali, and golden dale WA. I have learned much in farming practices, biodynamic ,herbalism, permaculture ,animal husbandry,community  building. I also have side gigs with clients gardening and maintenance upkeep. It is my passion to work with the  plants and hear the language of what the spirit of the plants and land is teaching me and wanting me to do. I have been wild crafting for more than a decade making my own  herbal line as well as flower essences. My hope is to put my good work and knowledge to teach and share with my community as well as my family. I need a small portion of land. I want to grow my own herbs and food for my herbal business that I want to start up in 2022.  I also am open to exploring and helping growing and caring for the land and farm that is already established. Me and my 12 year old son Kaius unfortunately had to leave are last place of residency due to black mold and aspestis the last few months and need a safe place to land. Sadly I also had to leave my herbal and food garden behind. I wish to live in harmony with my son, dog and outside cats to grow and heal heal myself as well as assist others. I am also a reiki practitioner in the se Portland area. I have a healing center in sellwood and I encourage other with my herbal concoctions and flower essences.  I would  love to live on the land. I’m hard working woman and love people and animals. I am open to a lease or trade situation and open to possibilities!!!
In my past time I am in a local Portland band , love to make jewelry, Hike and explore,meditate,yoga and dance and basically anything art, spend time with my son and dog. I can’t wait to find the right people and space to grow and live happy.
Blessings and look forward to hearing and exploring all my options!

Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

To help heal the land and people. I wish to plant and grow from seedlings, transplant and propagate plants to grow harvest and make into medicines to sell. I want a long term situation to establish my roots and harvest capacity. I am open to a CSA or potential farmers markets as long as I can sell my own products.


What are your long term goals

Long term goals would be to see my business thriving and growing helping to inspire and create more health and healing for the community. It would be a great accomplishment to see my products on the shelves of markets and grocery stores. I also would love to get to a place where I can teach my employees to make the products to eventually travel and teach the masses on the power of healing through right foods and herbal medicine.


Describe your housing needs

Small cottage/cabin/or yurt. I need a space of my own with my son that is now 12 years old. I have a well behaved husky and two older outdoor indoor cats. I prefer to live close to the garden to maintain it and oversee the crops or food. I love the permaculture platform and keeping everything in range of sight.
