Seeking a Mentor seeking a menteeeeeee!


Land Seeker Description

Greetings!  My name is Kerry I am in the middle of my life looking desperately for a change.  I currently reside in what is my native Bay Area  California but I am hoping to find some apprenticeship or mentoring relationship farming or working in the country.  I love being outdoors and find a need to be working…doing anything really….I’m currently sort of idle and it is tearing me apart.  I enjoy hard work as it keeps my mind busy but I am admittedly novice  at everything I am looking to do.  Sounds sort of silly but I greatly desire a life created out of work that sustains itself…I just don’t have the “skill set” if you will or won’t yet to get myself there….I’m praying there’s an angel out there that wants to impart their wisdom and knowledge to a person desperately seeking something different and is drowning in her life as it is.

I have minimal experience with a small  vegetable garden I started last year with my nieces and just gardening on a personal scale.  I assisted in general labor projects with my former partner  which ranged from siding, painting, shingling.  I learned plaster and tiling and have used a variety of saws in the construction of fences, an archway, and stairs.  Again…I must stress I am entirely novice at these things but greatly enjoyed that work and I am really eager to develop a life that is created and sustained using those skills.

I am looking for someone looking for a hard working eager to learn any and everything mentee or partner lackey whatever you want to call it…that will keep you laughing (open to interpretation ;)…while we work and learn

What features of the property are essential?

A person willing to impart their knowledge to an eager well intentioned hard worker

Describe your farming experience

I have an intense desire to learn how to farm and to create a sustainable life working and living existing amongst like minded individuals...but I am new to farming completely. I have minimal gardening experience but am eager to learn any and everything

Are you currently farming?


What are your short term goals for the land

My short term goals are purely to educate myself any and everyway I can about what it takes to operate a small farm through any apprentice or mentoring relationships.

What are your long term goals

Ideally, in my lifetime, I would like to create a small sanctuary in the country that sustains itself and helps to heal people through hard work and creatively utilizing resources....that sounds sort of out there...maybe it will be.....

Describe your housing needs

I am hoping to find a live work trade with various potentials for learning how to build structures
